Catterick racing tips (1430): Each-way pundits eye up Bean Norty and Sawpit Samantha

With four places widely available, Tipstrr’s each-way specialists have been busy assessing the value of a couple of outsiders capable of outracing their odds in this open-looking handicap hurdle.

Those outsiders might have to settle for the minor placings if Mullins Cross reproduces anything like the performance that landed him a six-runner race in heavy going at Bangor only four days ago, especially as he now runs off the same mark as Brian Hughes with in the saddle.

However, the quick turnaround could also work against him, which offers hope to rival market principal Mistral Nell, while also improving the each-way prospects of those further down the betting.

Dazzling Dove is of interest if he can hit the improving ground running after an eight-month break, while more realistic claims fall on Bean Norty, who is dropped in trip for his first effort for new trainer Rebecca Menzies, and with the seven-pound claim of the very capable William Maggs, this seven-year-old mare could impress on his seasonal bow.

Meanwhile, Tipstrr each-way specialist Richard Hutchinson is keeping faith with another seemingly rank outsider, whose potential might just outweigh his previous performances.

Sawpit Samantha looks a fascinating runner, bred by David Hunt who owns the dam, Sawpit Supreme (who he raced and won over both two and two-and-a-half miles), and from whom he has already bred Sawpit Sienna who has won three races over hurdles up to 20 furlongs.

Sawpit Samantha has only run in five races to date, the first of which was a NH flat race in 2022, when she went off favourite and looked the likely winner before fading late on – she must have been showing a bit at home to warrant the market support.

Her best run in three maiden hurdles was a fair postmark of 84 on decent ground, where she jumped well, and wasn’t given a hard time, being allowed to coast home up the home straight.

She made her seasonal and handicap debut last month on heavy ground and she looked like she hated the conditions and trailed in, but that was still a fair conditioning run.

Her best postmarks have been on decent ground, so improving underfoot conditions should suit her here, and they step her up to two miles three furlongs, which could bring further improvement from her.

Off just 82, she hardly has to improve on her best novice run to be involved here, so with the right jockey booking of Robert Dunne we are pleasantly surprised that we can back her at 50/1 with 4 places available, although that price has quickly been snaffled up..
