Fresh from a successful Sunday, Sam Turner was at it again yesterday with a very easy 9-2 winner. He has two more picks today.
Mamoo (Catterick, 4.45)
MAMOO heads to North Yorkshire for the third time this year and should find today’s competition more to his liking after bumping into Teescomponents Lad last time.
The selection had a low key return to racing after a lengthy break - and switch to Sam England - and on his first visit to Catterick on New Year’s Day landed a hard-fought success. That was his first for a year and a half and buoyed by that connections opted to move up two grades last time and, but for bumping into Teescomponents Lad, would have landed a second track win with the front pair 25 lengths clear of the field on soft going.
Mamoo now drops back a level and with proven form in the mud does look decent value against the warm favourite Composeur whose apparent improvement in form last time was put down to racing on faster going and increase in trip.
Auchterarder (Lingfield, 4.00)
AUCHTERARDER - a juvenile winner at Beverley and Wolverhampton over the minimum trip - looked unfortunate on her final run last year back at Dunstall Park over 6f when racing wide and clipping heels heading to the two furlong pole. Luckily she only stumbled but recovered well albeit too late to land a telling blow.
The filly was running on nicely over the extra furlong and now gets another try at the distance on her return to action on her handicap bow after an 80-day break and first try on Polytrack. She is clear on my speed figures and looks a promising and versatile three-year-old, who has options on the all-weather and turf.
