16:30 Catterick Michael Bell boasts a 36% winning strike rate in the last three years at Catterick and has just one runner on the card today. India has made the frame in all three prior runs over twelve furlongs and brings solid course form having beat her closest rival by five lengths over course and distance on penultimate run. She raced too freely last time out but still travelled well enough through the race, finishing second after tiring and being picked off in the final 100 yards. Re-united with jockey David Allan for today’s race, I am hoping she will settle better so with course, distance and trainer form on her side she gets the vote in what looks to be a decent little race. Reveleon won on debut for Michael Appleby last month (beating Archie Perkins who has won twice since) and will be a danger if seeing out this longer trip, while Breathable has been holding his form well, posting figures of 2122 from his last four runs, although carries 3lbs extra than when second last time out so may have to settle for minor honours again. INDIA (WIN) – NAP
