2:35 Catterick Racing Tips (7th August)

Horse racing tips
CATTERICK 2.35 (7.7) 

A class 6 which doesn't thrill me too much and from the 10 entrants I've narrowed it down to a couple of selections, Pearl Noir is 3rd or possibly 2nd top rated and versatile when it comes to racing tactics so it could be thereabouts nearing the finish, COMPTON RIVER 7/2 starts off as 2nd top rated but the 7lb claiming apprentice moves it to top spot and it looks the only natural front runner in the field so if the apprentice gets the fractions right it could lead all the way but I'm going to also back my original top rated, CUPPACOCO 5/1 who can be held up or track the leaders but the jockey employed is 0-14 for the stable, so not sure what to expect but i will go with 2 small bets to cover both angles. 

Compton River 9/2 3rd
Cuppacoco 15/2 7th 


A race where I'm not sure where the early pace will come from and I've only got 3 with recorded times, Windforpower is 3rd top but may struggle to see out the trip if there's a fast early pace so it could make the frame with the make-up of this race, the top weight EXTRASOLAR 4/1 is 2nd top rated using a time recorded at Carlisle this year and a repeat would see it going very close here but i do have PICKS PINTA 20/1 rated higher but that ones best time also came from Carlisle but in 2017 and would need to spring back to form to win but it could possible do so, it means i will be backing them both. 

Extrasolar 9/2 1st 
Picks Pinta 20/1 9th 

AYR 6.45 (8.5)

Only 7 runners here and the 2 that are known to set the pace are also my 2 top rated horses, Eternalist is well weighted on its best time but may not win the battle for the lead or the win with MERRY BANTER 5/2 also liking to lead and this one has been running fairly consistently well recently and has a chance here to get back to winning ways.

Merry Banter 9/2 1st + SF £51.15
