Catterick Cracking Each-Way Betting Snip. It’s best to do this kind of bet in shops, you just need to check that all 8 runs. Or, if reduced to two places (5-7 runners), one of the betting principals is the non-runner!

STOP PRESS: If 8-runners go to post, you should bet this each way. In racing terms, betting on such horses is called each-way thieving! That is when the placed odds being offered by betting each way are much bigger than true odds. This one at odds of 11/2 is 11/10 a place when on the betting exchanges it will be nearer to 4/7 for a top-three finish!

I’ve always found it lucrative to take on Jonjo O’Neill runners at short odds. In this race, O’Neill booked Richie McLernon for the ride on HASHTHING

While the lightly raced JP McManus-owned 7-year-old won 3 of his 5 races, he’s had training issues. The son of KONIG TURF missed all of 2022, and he’s only been raced 3 times over the past year.

To be fair, when trained by Daniella Mele, HASHTING was the winner of two French Bumper races. He then followed up by placing in Grade Two at last year’s Grand National meeting in Aintree, and since then won a hurdle at Leicester.

However, despite winning that last race with a bit in hand his jumping lacked conviction. Waiting for so long before sent hurdling suggests he’s not been convincing with his jumping at home!

To cut a long story short, the favorite is penalized and racing at a track that is unlikely to suit him. 

HERE COMES GEORGIE won at the 6th attempt, and previously he was a fair 2nd over this course & distance. As a result, Patrick Neville’s 111-rated 6-year-old is the other penalized runner. As a consequence,  that extra 6 pounds could leave him vulnerable.

Meanwhile,  the Sandy Thomson trained DEFENCE WITNESS is switching to hurdles. The 5-year-old won a point-to-point, thus jumping hurdles shouldn’t be an issue. On his debut under rules, the son of COURT CAVE won a 4-runner NHF race at this track. 

With everything considered, PIC ROC is the one that interests me the most!! Ben Paulings’ yard is starting to hit top form, and the 6-year-old will have benefitted from his comeback race. 

The son of MOUNT NELSON will appreciate the drop in class, and he ran better than his position suggested at Newbury. Kielan Woods’ traveled to Catterick for the ride, so let’s trust our gut instinct and get stuck in!
