Trainer with strong Catterick strike-rate sends 288-1 double on 468-mile round trip

Catterick Racecourse

The week continues with five meetings, another busy day of action for us to enjoy. The Curragh, Catterick, Chepstow, Bangor host the afternoon racing, before Newcastle takes over for a twilight meeting on the All-Weather. We’ll have horse racing tips across the meetings, including a NAP of the Day.

It’s always interesting when trainers send their horses on long journeys and Archie Watson does so on Tuesday. He sends a pair of runners on a 468-mile round trip from Lambourn to Catterick, a venue he holds a 24% strike-rate at. They’re both each-way prices and the double pays 288-1; find all the details below!

2.40 Catterick – Millbry Hill Handicap

The first of his runners is the seven-year-old mare Luna Magic, who rattled off a pair of victories at Salisbury and Goodwood back in August. The latter came off a rating of 72 and she subsequently placed at Newmarket on her next start, running extremely well in a Class 3 event off a rating of 75.

She’s disappointed in two subsequent starts at Catterick, but she’s now just a pound above her last winning rating as a result. Having won on softer ground in the past, the conditions will be no problem, and stepping up in trip could be the catalyst that returns her to near her best.

At the same price, Amor De Mi Vida goes in the penultimate race for Watson. She arrives on the back of three below-par showings, latterly at Wolverhampton where she finished tailed off after weakening tamely. As a result, she’s fallen back onto her last winning rating, and she does remain unexposed over six furlongs.

As previously mentioned, she’s fallen onto her last winning mark, but she also placed off a mark of 80 after that last success, so she’s obviously well-treated. Softer ground is an unknown, but she has won on good to soft in the past, and she’s one to take very seriously under Luke Morris.
