Speed Ratings - by Lawrence Taylor

Lawrence Taylor provides exclusive ratings and Speed Six analysis every day for At The Races. His best bets for Tuesday both go on the level at Catterick.

HEADLINE

RARE GLAM LOOKS GOOD AT CATTERICK

 

RARE GLAM (nap) caught the eye when a staying on fifth at Salisbury last month, a performance that also saw her generate a list-topping speed rating of 69.

The form of the race has been franked since too, with the second horse home running 13 points faster when trotting up at Yarmouth next time out.

A 3yo daughter of Derby winner Australia, the selection is bred to stay today's longer trip of a mile and a half, but probably won't want too much rain to hit the track between now and post time.

First-time blinkers could also put a winning edge on her.

Beverley 4-30 Handicap (Class 5) 10f

LTO Speed: Bea Ryan 64 Ideal Candy 63 Hua Mulan 59

ITMUSTHAVEBEENLOVE posted a list-dominant speed rating of 79 when just losing out at Leicester on her penultimate outing, but disappointed in a more slowly run affair at Windsor last time out. Today's predicted strong pace, plus a return to a stiffer track, could enable the filly to open her account at the seventh time of asking, while her early bird odds of 7-1 with bet365 at the time of writing looks like value to this particular pundit.

 

Catterick 4-15 Handicap (Class 6) 7f

LTO Speed: Midnite Bride 65 Passing Nod 64 Anna Maria 58

With top-rated Made For All not firing on all cylinders of late, the focus falls on MIDNITE BRIDE (nb), who ran a fast-finishing second to Lady Nectar over six furlongs at this venue a fortnight ago. The form of that race looks solid too, with the third horse home running ten points faster in victory at Redcar next time out. A 3yo daughter of Kodiac, out of a mare by Indian Ridge, the selection is bred to appreciate today's step up to ten furlongs, and should find underfoot conditions just about perfect.

 Rocky Dreams  43  43  --  --  --  --  --

LTO Speed: With Respect 86 The Perfect Crown 85 Aroha 66

THE PERFECT CROWN rates clear top on the clock for this nine-runner novices event, courtesy of his comeback second to solid yardstick Malotru over this track and trip back in February. Off the scene since then, the colt's fitness will have to be taken on trust this afternoon, not that he would have to be 100 per cent against these much lesser rivals.

 

Southwell 6-30 Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th

 Cuban Sun  74  74  --  --  --  --  --

LTO Speed: El Borracho 84 Leroy Brown 74 Cuban Sun 74

EL BORRACHO posted a premier LTO speed rating of 84 when chasing home Captain Tom Cat at Uttoxeter last month, and if building on that promising effort today could easily open his hurdles account at the third time of asking. A 9-2 shot in the betting forecast, those odds can be considered fair in a maiden contest that doesn't look all that strong.

 Annajemima  74  38  --  60  74  --  --

LTO Speed: Princess T 79 Love The Well 66 Kabrit 66

I'm going to give an each-way shout to ALL GOOD THINGS in this 16-runner handicap hurdle, as he posted a list-topping speed rating of 86 when just losing out at Ludlow on his penultimate outing, and can also boast a wide-margin victory of this course and distance in November of last year. It will be interesting to see how this forecast 12-1 shot trades in the live market.
