12th January 2012 – Catterick Bridge

Bishops Heir | 3:15 | 2m | The W.L. And Hector Christie Memorial Trophy (A Novices Handicap Steeple Chase)

Jockey: Brian Hughes

Sponsor: Reid Quantum

Thoughts

Certainly not his best trip or track but a suitable engagement  due to being a Novice Handicap. Bishop is in great form at home and brought back a 2nd on his last outing at Haydock.

Ueueteotl | 3:45 | 2m | The Tunstall Standard National Hunt Flat Race

Jockey: Dale Irving

Sponsor: Reid Quantum

Thoughts

Looks like a competitive Bumper, although Uzbec has his 4 year old allowance which will make up for his penalty from his win first time out at Carlisle. Dale Irving is his jockey whom is also Uzbec’s regular work rider everyday at home so he knows the horse well. On paper this is a 2 horse race – top horse from Kim Bailey’s yard with Viking Ridge, carrying 11st/12 and who won at Huntingdon. There are also possible noises from Steve Golling’s horse Sibling Rivalry. However the main opposition has an attractive weigh and pull on Huntingdon with 12lbs from winner Viking Ridge.
