Catterick: Paddy Power | 3:25pm Racing Welfare Supporting Racing’s Workforce Veteran’s Handicap | Dom’s Pick [+£15.37 for a £1 stake on daily flat NAP’s]
Saturday’s fancy in the Derby Trial at Lingfield didn’t fire but it was still a good week with two winning shouts on the flat.
Today, our team is siding with Richard Fahey’s Paddy Power to land a second successive victory following his Ayr win last month.
The eight-year-old is heavily raced and will make his 71st racecourse appearance this afternoon for his handler.
A Pivotal gelding, he has only made one Catterick appearance before when finishing sixth of 11 back in October, but that was on soft ground off a 14lbs higher mark.
He’s only been raised 3lbs for his Scottish success in April and given that most of his best form of late has arrived on the turf, that could prove fairly lenient and he’s worth chancing to strike twice while the iron is hot.
