Richard Birch focuses on soft ground form for his Catterick placepot selections
Proven soft-ground horses should form the focus of Catterick placepot permutations.
Where’s Jeff has dropped to an eyecatching mark after a series of defeats this season. He ran well for a long way over the course last time out, and merits inclusion in leg three (1.40) along with Bolder Bob, who has his second start for Brian Ellison.
Grace And Virtue, successful in three of her last five races, should again be thereabouts in leg four (2.10). Ey Up Its Mick has done most of his running at less than 7f this season, but often finishes as though it will prove ideal.
Main Fact ran riot off a mark of 60 at Newbury on Friday, and this 147-rated hurdler clearly has the Flat handicapper in all sorts of bother. Leg five (2.40) looks a formality.
Course specialist Redrosezorrow is the choice for leg six (3.15).
