Our website tipster Dave Nevison likes three contenders at Catterick on Wednesday. See his reasoning below and enjoy further action from Nottingham, Bellewstown and Kempton - with dedicated coverage available live on Racing TV Extra.
3.20 Catterick: Tomorrow’s Angel
He ran really well last time over a marathon trip over hurdles and seems in pretty good form.
Tomorrow’s Angel has been consistent around this two-mile trip recently and won at Musselburgh in the summer. Oisin McSweeney taking off 5lb certainly takes the eye and the jockey is still very good value – he will rattle through his claim very quickly given the support he is getting in the North.
There are a few contenders in this field – among them recent winners and horses rated much higher over hurdles who could be absolutely thrown in - but Tomorrow’s Angel looks a solid type and should be able to get into the frame at least.
4.50 Catterick: Liberated Lad
Liberated Lad improved last time at Hamilton but runs off the same mark here.
I feel he beat the re-opposing Barenboim pretty comfortably at Windsor on his penultimate start and, even though that horse is 4lb better off, I doubt whether he will turn the tables. Barenboim should help set a good pace so Liberated Lad won’t have to make the running either, which may help him further.
It looks as though the cheekpieces that have been added to the tongue strap on his last two starts have certainly contributed to him hitting form. Hopefully they will work a third time here.
5.20 Catterick: Bluella
Bluella has run really well on her last two starts after a mid-summer break and can gain reward for her consistency here.
She likes this track, too – from four runs at Catterick, Bluella has finished runner-up twice and won here earlier this season.
Her young jockey had a nightmare ride last time when missing the break and stumbling close home, but he still managed to get his mount to finish second behind one of Simon Walker’s - who rides probable favourite Mews House here.
In five rides so far, Lewis Kent has had a winner as well as that second. I am beginning to think his 5lb in these races is looking value and he is on a very uncomplicated mare here.
