14:45 (Catterick) My Gift To You

My Gift To You heads into the Every Race Live On Racing TV Novices’ Handicap Chase in good form and has proven before that he can carry a big weight to victory.

James Owen’s charge scored over fences and hurdles before putting in another solid effort when tackling the bigger obstacles at Southwell last month, coming home second despite a couple of costly errors.

Useful amateur Alex Chadwick will take off a valuable 7lb here and it is hard to see My Gift To You not being there or thereabouts again.


15:15 (Catterick) Lily Du Berlais

Irish raider Lily Du Berlais is taken to make light of a long absence in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle.

Stuart Crawford’s eight-year-old was a Grade Two bumper winner a couple of years ago and although yet to get off the mark over timber, she has performed with credit in some hot contests in Ireland.

Having finished second to Jetara at Navan and then Fun Fun Fun at Leopardstown, the daughter of Shirocco was far from disgraced in graded affairs won by Corbetts Cross and Irish Point.

Lily Du Berlais has not been seen since pulling up at Fairyhouse last April but appears to have been found a nice comeback race.


15:45 (Catterick) Haston Clermont

Haston Clermont was just a nose away from completing a hat-trick at Chepstow last time out and gets the nod in the Download The Raceday Ready App Today Handicap Chase.

The seven-year-old won’t mind any cut underfoot and remains a progressive young sort with plenty of scope.


16:15 (Catterick) Burrows Hall


Burrows Hall could hardly have been more impressive when winning at Catterick last week and is backed to complete a quick course and distance double.

Sue Smith’s seven-year-old hails from a fantastic family, with siblings Burrows Park, Burrows Diamond and Burrows Edge all registering multiple victories.

Having hinted at ability himself in bumpers, Burrows Hall took well to hurdling last season, getting off the mark in April with a comfortable Carlisle success.

He looked to be continuing on an upward curve when returning to action this term with placed efforts at the Cumbrian track and Doncaster but then let down odds-on backers when blundering at the last here over the Christmas period.

Connections clearly felt a bit more schooling was in order, as Burrows Hall had a couple of months away from the track before making all in fine style, with Nick Scholfield able to ease his mount down after being more than 10 lengths clear at the final flight.

Despite stepping up in trip, more forceful tactics really seemed to suit the gelding that day.

He picks up a 7lb penalty for that triumph but has the scope to cope in the Best Odds Guaranteed At Vickers.Bet Handicap Hurdle now everything appears to have clicked into place.

CATTERICK: 2.15 Foveros, 2.45 My Gift To You, 3.15 Lily Du Berlais, 3.45 Haston Clermont, 4.15 Burrows Hall, 4.45 Percussion.
