Alan Dudman had two winners yesterday for a 30/1 successful multiple, and he is hoping to follow up with another double at Catterick for Tuesday…
“Lady Bowes runs form the same mark of 105 and there’s still untapped potential as a 3m2f horse as she looks to possess plenty of stamina. Moffatt trained the selection’s mother Blazing Bay who ran in the same silks.”
Stay loyal to Don’s Brother
Dapper Don McCain continued his superlative strike-rate at Carlisle on Monday with two more winners, and his Tim Pat helped round off a winning 31.030/1 double for the column yesterday. It was a decent return boosted by a nice drift on Duty Calls too for in-form Sandy Forster. Hopefully ‘The Don’ is at it again with another of his ‘Pat’ horses at Catterick.
The 7yo is one of the progressive chasers in the field and has already reeled off four victories this season. One of those successes came at Sedgefield over 3m3f, and while the race was steadily run, he posted a couple of good sectional times in the final stages – including one at 13.69 seconds through the 3m mark, which was easily the quickest against his rivals. He took a nice lead from Cuneo in the race, and he’ll be handy again today.
Last time out he finished a creditable third in the Lincolnshire National at Market Rasen although has been dropped 1lb. He’s a sound jumper and Theo Gillard is flourishing with him. Hopefully their partnership can reap the rewards again.
Bowes can be the leading lady for Moffatt
The lightly-raced Lady Bowes for James Moffatt looks to have a good chance in the final race of the day at Catterick. With the ground good to soft at the time of writing, there was rain forecast for Monday night, and I am hoping it pushes more towards soft as the selection seems to enjoy those conditions.
She flashed an indicator of her stamina as a rookie horse in December 2020 when she won from the front at Hexham over 2m4f in heavy ground by 12L. I do like Hexham form for stayers.
Subsequently she was seen just once the following spring and then wasn’t out again until the following Christmas time, so it’s a positive that she has managed back-to-back runs this season when appearing at Haydock and Hexham.
Her latest effort at Haydock was a second behind a well-handicapped and potentially progressive winner in Stolen Money, and both took each other on for the lead so it was a fair run.
Lady Bowes runs form the same mark of 105 and there’s still untapped potential as a 3m2f horse as she looks to possess plenty of stamina. Moffatt trained the selection’s mother Blazing Bay who ran in the same silks.
