Catterick Bridge Best Bets

Race 1: GOLDENCARD (5)
Trainer: Christian Williams - Jockey: Jack Tudor

A race that should fall to a Welsh stable can see GOLDENCARD gaining a deserved success at the main expense of Loco Coco. The selection is yet to score in nine starts for his trainer but in finishing second at Fakenham on his last two tries signalled his winning turn is close at hand.

Race 2: BOLLIN NEIL (2)
Trainer: Tim Easterby - Jockey: Jamie Hamilton

The course experience of BOLLIN NEIL can play its part in seeing the Haafhd gelding open his account over jumps. He left his Sedgefield debut a long way behind to run A Large One Please to a length and threequarters and in doing so confirmed his liking for the course, having won on the Flat here in the autumn.

Race 5: SASHENKA (9) (Nap)
Trainer: Michael Scudamore - Jockey: Tom Scudamore

SASHENKA attracted a deal of support before finishing second on jumps debut at Wincanton. The Maxios filly will be a lot more streetwise and can add to her four successes on the Flat.

Newcastle Best Bets

Race 3: DUEL IN THE SUN (3)
Trainer: Charlie Fellowes - Jockey: David Probert

Sea The Stars colt DUEL IN THE SUN has been off for over 200 days since his very promising first effort at Newmarket. He beat all but Sunray Major when weak in the market but in spite of his long break is going to know a lot more, while he’s trained well on an all-weather surface at home.

Race 4: VIVE LA DIFFERANCE (9) (Each Way)
Trainer: Tim Easterby - Jockey: James Sullivan

Horses that have been out in the wilderness like VIVE LA DIFFERENCE have a habit of bouncing back when gaining a favourable mark and that could prove the case today. Interestingly it was at this time last year and at this course that he gained back-to-back victories and he should be all the better for a couple of warm up outings on the Tapeta.

Race 6: DRAMATISTA (7) (Nap)
Trainer: Roger Fell - Jockey: Jason Hart

With few miles on her racing clock, DRAMATISTA has the wherewithal to back up the promise of her latest run at this course when third to Fashion Free. The daughter of Lope De Vega has got better with each outing on this surface and is poised to further raise her game.
