On Wednesday we have what looks interesting little claiming race on the turf at Catterick over 7 furlongs with 10 runners declared
3.00 CATTERICK 7F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6:
10 runners go to post for 7F claimer on the the turf at Catterick .On official handicap ratings we have three main contenders .TAJNEED ,NO POPPY & GEORGE BENJAMIN .
TAJNEED has an official rating of 100 and is 23LB clear of his nearest rival .However looked very disappointing on his last four starts at the end of last year.Has since rejoined Dandy Nicholls and takes massive drop in class into class 6 claimer .
NO POPPY : Consistent filly and had some solid form in handicap company last season finishing second three times ,including finishing second in 7F class 3 handicap at Doncaster off mark 80 .Will be suited returning to claiming company over 7 furlongs .
GEORGE BENJAMIN :C&D winner here at Catterick & Won 7F handicap at Thirsk around this time last year off mark 74 .Didn't show great deal on his seasonal reappearance at Doncaster and all his best form has been on faster ground.
VERDICT : TAJNEED is going to take plenty of beating if running anywhere near rating of 100 ,though is on losing run of 17 races .Odds around 6-4 look poor value for horse with no recent form
NO POPPY looks fair each-way bet having shown some solid form in better races last season and won similar claiming race over 7F at Leicester back in May .Odds around 9-2 look fair each-way value.
WEDNESDAY'S BEST BET :
NO POPPY 3.00 LEICESTER
