Paul Green's Maragna may have a chance of getting on the scoresheet at Catterick today. The leading flat amateur Mr S. Walker has been booked and cheekpieces are on for the first time at a track where the trainer has a 22% strike rate. Throw in the fact that its his only runner today and that this son of Invincible Spirit is dropping back to 5f and you have the makings of a tip ! The only downside of course is that he nas never won and not shown a great deal to date, but today could be his day in this lowly affair.
I have been a follower of racing from an early age with my first memory being trying to pick the winner of the Derby in 1965. This interest has moved on to having shares in horses which has resulted in wins at the Dubai Festival, with Turn on the Style, and more recently with Tatlisu in the Ayr Silver Cup.
This blog is primarily about sprinters which I have always had an interest in and it will cover most 5f and 6f races throughout the season.
