TODAYS RATINGS AND ADVICE

CATTERICK 3-30 – CLASS 5

* – MESHARDAL….+8
* – TRICKY DICKY….+8
* – EXTRASOLAR….-19
* – WINDFORPOWER….-23
* – MAJOR CRISPIES….-25
BOLD SPIRIT….-40
LACKADAY….-40
TOP OF THE BANK….-40
SECRET MISSILE….-40

NOTES: I’ll happily work with my top two here. My top rated is 2-11 ground, 6-34 trip and a decent 2-6 track…always important here.

TRICKY DICKY also has solid stats….1-4 ground, 5-12 trip and 1-3 track.

My numbers suggest it’s a two horse race and with that one sitting fourth best currently 0-28 track, and EXTRASOLAR a mere 2-22 trip, I’m confident….as I can be about a Class 5, anyway.

GOODWOOD 2-35 – CLASS 2

* – GOSSIPING….+10
H* – CASTLE HARBOUR….+9
* – SHADY MCCOY….-1
ROBANNE….-19
PROFESSOR….-34
HORSTED KEYNES….-35
ACCESSION….-40
H – THE WARRIOR….-40
OWER FLY….-40
MUTAWATHEA….-40

NOTES: If the winner is outside my top three I’ll be a tad stunned. Yesterday i mentioned I felt SHADY MCCOY had been plotted for this. I still think that. His stats allied to ratings make him a serious contender (2-5 ground, 4-12 trip and 2-3 track), but that pair above him also have a bunch going for them.

My top rated is 1-4 ground, 1-3 trip and 1-1 track, CASTLE HARBOUR 1-2 ground, 2-5 trip, races here for the first time, in first time cheek-pieces.

They are miles ahead of anything else and with the remainder of the field 0-39 ground, 0-15 track, I’m going to play this as the numbers have fallen. Top three dutch (if I can take a profit that way), 20/80 my top one and, exotics.
