Forecast

Bazarov (4/6), Rockliffe (9/2), Trapper Peak (5/1), Theatre Act (14/1), Eolian (20/1), Bocasien Desbois (22/1), Nancy Maher (25/1), Rock N'stones (50/1)

Verdict

Archie Watson has forged a fine reputation for himself on the Flat, yet he saddles his first ever runner under National Hunt rules at Catterick of all places courtesy of BAZAROV. This ex-Irish gelding remains a maiden but is of definite interest on the back of a much improved showing at Limerick (2m5f) in December. In a modest race with the experienced Brodie Hampson in the saddle, it's probably worth chancing that he'll handle this sounder racing surface. The most obvious alternative is the Sedgefield scorer Trapper Peak.
  1. Bazarov
  2. Trapper Peak
  3. Theatre Act
