Catterick 2.35

Catterick 2.35 1 Gonalston Cloud - 1 point each way @ 9/1 (WH / BV / Sky)

the obvious starting point is the Sue Smith Trained I JUST KNOW; we had the winner in this last year with one
of her's who finished well, and this has a similar profile and sure to try to make all. I'm just a bit concerned that its wins at 3 miles have
been a "bit too easy"; paradox I know, but I want to see evidence that it can really battle, and the last half mile will be a real test; so I
reluctantly leave out, I think SUN CLOUD  could harry it down the last 1/2 mile; they could come 1-2 but neither totally convince me
stamina wise on soft Going, so I will go for something proven. GONALSTON CLOUD has a good Course record, interesting jockey
(very under-rated booked) and looks to be on a decent mark. We did line him up as a tip at an abandoned meeting over Christmas
and that's my only slight niggle; is he a race short of peak, only one way to find out and he ticks every other box. I don't see it as
a race to go "2 handed" if you wish to, have a smaller stake on ITSTIMEFORAPINT that would definitely be a tip but for an
inexplicable absence since October, must have had a niggle and if it had been out since and run OK would definitely be bang there
but very much in the "may just be found out needing the run at the business end, but nice forecast/tricast material, and 1/4 point if
you feel 2 in the race; is the way to go.
