Trip to the North !



Not many readers of the blog post pre racing yesterday and unfortunately for those that didn't "click on the page" they missed the only selection All Set To Go winning at 5/2.

The stables we are following ie Paul Nicholls and Dan Skelton, have runners tomorrow at Catterick and their chances are disected below :

Paul Nicholls
1.20 - Romain De Senam wears a hood and a tongue for the first time. He was an unchallenged 15 length winner when winning at Wincanton on his return where he jumped well. He then ran at Cheltenham and finished 3rd behind Wolf Of Windlesham having failed to settle and diving at a few of his hurdles. He was previously trained by Guillaume Macaire in France and won at Enghien in April and he is by a sire that the stable like. He is an improving sort and it is hoped that he can get back on track even with his double penalty - he has to give the filly Multi Grain 21lbs and that is the mount of Sam Twiston Davies which will make things interesting. 2nd. Multi Grain was available at 40/1 in the morning and went off at 12's to finish 3rd.

1.50 - Stilletto is one of a number of horses sent to the stable over the summer by Roger Brookhouse this one having been with Philip Hobbs. He returned at Haydock when in need of the outing and finished 3rd behind Rock The Kasbah. He is a big horse not short of ability and he is reported to have needed plenty of work prior to his return. He is now switched to the larger obstacles and should come into his own now that he sees a fence and this race should be within his capabilities. 1st 6/4f

Dan Skelton
1.20 - Fizzlestix finished 5th of 7 on his debut at Huntingdon recently in a Class 4 3yo juvenile hurdle over 2m on good to soft and the experience gained should be beneficial. He is said to jump well, possess a good attitude and have ability. He gets a stone from Nicholls runner which is off set by Cobden's 7lb claim and in an open race he should give a good account. 0

2.20 - Rock Chick Supremo was 4th in a bumper at Kempton in March when she ran better than expected finishing 4th. She returned at Aintree recently and finished 6th of 9 being well beaten which was disappointing as they thought she would run well. Her breeding would appear to suggest that she will better over further so the step up in distance should help as will the slightly easier going and the fact that she sees a hurdle in front of her. The stable will be keen that she does well as she may be one purchased for breeding purposes in the future. Finished a well beaten 3rd

Bets
Fizzlestix 0.50 points ew @ 12/1 with Bet365 and Ladbrokes
