2.40 Catterick – CASTAN (1pt win – 11/2 Bet365, 4/1 generally)

CASTAN caught the eye at Redcar back in May on his second start this term, doing best of those ridden patiently when a three-length third of eight. The other hold-up horses in that race have advertised the form – fourth-placed Cuban Rock recorded a 7-1 Musselburgh success a few runs later (he might have added to that in the 7.35 at Musselburgh last night), sixth-placed Borough has scored twice this summer and seventh home Cavalier Approach won at Hamilton last week on his debut for Ed Bethell. Castan himself has only had one subsequent outing, going down by nose in second at Musselburgh 57 days after the Redcar run and he looks very interesting now back at Catterick for the first time since his course and distance success last September.

4.25 Lingfield – THAPA VC (1pt E/W – 12/1 Bet365, 11/1 generally)

THAPA VC was a big eyecatcher when ninth of 15 at Doncaster on June 18, doing third best of those to race on the far side from their unfavourable low draws. Archduke Ferdinand, best of the far side bunch, has won twice since (33-1 and 16-1) and 50-1 shot Magical Effect, second best of that disadvantaged group, has finished second (16-1 and 17-2) in two of his subsequent runs. Thapa VC has only managed a pair of seventh places since Doncaster but was unsuited by the step up to an extended 1m trip at Windsor in the first of them, doing well to finish three and a half lengths behind the winner, and then blew the start when beaten by just over seven lengths on the turf here at Lingfield next time. He has a superior strike-rate on the all-weather (six wins from 18, as opposed to just one from nine on grass) and is 5lb lower than when fifth, doing second best of the closers, in this race 12 months ago. There should be more pace on this time around and a clean break can see him return to form.
