The Best Horse Racing Tips for Catterick on Wednesday


Ahead of Newmarket’s July meeting which gets underway on Thursday, the action on Wednesday afternoon is of the moderate variety. We will concentrate on the card at Catterick for today’s Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions, starting with a 6f fillies’ handicap at 2.20pm.

The feature race at the Yorkshire track is the 2m Class 4 handicap which takes place at 3.30pm. We will supply a Horse Racing tip for this five-runner contest along with the final race of the day, a 7f competitive handicap at 5.10pm.

Our Tip for the 2.20pm at Catterick:

From stall two and off a lowly mark of just 54 it would be no surprise to see the lightly-raced Tim Easterby-trained Naughty Ana make all of the running to take this six furlong contest on just her seventh career start.

The three-year-old daughter of Anodin, after making most of the running on her most recent start at Redcar, only gave best well inside the final furlong when finishing a close third behind the in-form Truth In Jest.

With no other confirmed front-runner in the race, the mount of Cam Hardie could have an easy time of it up front and if able to grab the rail position should take plenty of pegging back. Top weight Vanitas, a recent winner at Pontefract, can prove the main danger.

Our Tip for the 3.30pm at Catterick:

Only five runners for this two mile contest but all can be given some kind of a chance. The two horses that head the handicap, Wise Eagle and Let Me Be, have been in sparkling form this season. But the horse who makes most appeal is bottom weight Bollin Neil and talented 5lb claimer Ella McCain.

The pair were united for the first time over this course and distance in May when finishing second to fellow rival Let Me Be (now 5lb worse off) before horse and jockey went on to win their next two starts, both at Catterick, before Bollin Neil’s most recent start when third at Nottingham with 5lb claimer Charlie O’Dwyer in the saddle.

Reunited with Ella McCain and in receipt of lumps of weight from his four rivals, the Haafhd gelding is taken to get back to winning ways at a track that clearly suits the five-year-old.

Our Tip for the 5.10pm at Catterick:

A moderate Class 6 seven furlong handicap which shouldn’t take a great deal of winning, a fact which points strongly towards a likely victory for the lightly-raced Feel The Thunder, from the Scott Dixon stable.

The five-year-old showed virtually nothing on his first four starts, all on Southwell’s all-weather surface, before the son of Milk It Mick was gelded in March.

Back to Southwell the following month, Feel The Thunder showed his first glimmer of ability when fourth of 13, beaten six lengths, at odds of 100/1. Sent off a 40/1 chance on his first run on turf at Redcar four weeks later, the selection found only fellow rival Key Look a half length too good.

The mount of 5lb claimer Kieran Schofield possesses more scope than any other horse in the race and only normal improvement should see Feel The Thunder record his first victory in a race there for the taking.
