Oddschecker tips for every race at Catterick on Friday.
Sue Smith landed the corresponding event last year with Myburg, and she appears to hold every chance of repeating the dose with PRAIRIE WOLF. The six-year-old was narrowly denied by a progressive rival here last month and a similar performance could see him open his account over timber. Astroman was far from disgraced at Sedgefield on his latest outing and he's fancied to be in the shake-up, along with Desaray Girl, who finds herself on a competitive mark.Prediction : 1st Prairie Wolf 2nd Astroman 3rd Desaray Girl
Connections have wasted no time in sending BALLYGEARY over timber after last month's sole bumper run, and the son of Flemensfirth is fancied to make an immediate impact in what appears to be a winnable contest. Hold Up La Colmine hit the frame at Lingfield last month and he ought to go close, along with Swallows Song, who shaped with promise behind River Don fourth Park This One over C&D on his hurdling bow. Prediction : 1st Ballygeary 2nd Hold Up La Colmine 3rd Swallows Song
Trac bumped into an improver over C&D in December and, though he's respected, George Bewley's FOLLOW YOUR ARROW is fancied to hit the target. The gelding struck the woodwork on his return from a 150-day absence over an extended 1m7f in November, but he returns to further following another short break and that could hold the key. Dreamsundermyfeet has been a model of consistency in recent starts and the addition of first-time cheekpieces is interesting.Prediction : 1st Follow Your Arrow 2nd Trac 3rd Dreamsundermyfeet
First-time blinkers could see Never No Trouble build on a series of promising efforts recently, but VISION OF HOPE makes both her stable and hurdling debut having shown plenty on the Flat for George Boughey. She failed to secure a hat-trick when finishing a good third at Lingfield over 1m4f last month and is worth taking a chance on over timber, but Pretending should not be dismissed for a reputable stable.Prediction : 1st Vision Of Hope 2nd Never No Trouble 3rd Pretending
NORTH PARADE finished a much-improved second on his most recent run over this trip at Hexham in November and, off the same mark, he has to merit a lot of consideration now eased in class. Moore Clouds has filled the runner-up spot on her last two outings and is another to bear in mind, while Snowy Clouds also warrants a market check despite having to shoulder top weight.Prediction : 1st North Parade 2nd Moore Clouds 3rd Snowy Clouds
The form of CREDO's most recent second at Hereford was franked by the winner going in again at Lingfield on Tuesday and Anthony Honeyball's mare appeals as one with plenty more to come over fences. She should have too much for the capable Gazette Bourgeoise, who was beaten a long way when runner-up at Wetherby, and Betty Baloo, who is still finding her feet over fences. Prediction : 1st Credo 2nd Gazette Bourgeoise 3rd Betty Baloo
HARD IRON has been a different proposition since entering handicaps and the step up in trip could eke out further improvement as he looks to land the hat-trick off an 8lb higher mark than his latest Ayr success. A determined winner over C&D last time out, Bollin Neil can give him the most to think about, while Flexi Furlough has strong claims on his penultimate success at Doncaster. Prediction : 1st Hard Iron 2nd Bollin Neil 3rd Flexi Furlough
