Catterick Racing Tips: Rich Spirit can open his account

Andrew Asquith outlines the Timeform view at Catterick

"On the form of his first two starts, he is more than capable of winning a race of this nature..."

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Catterick on Tuesday.

Catterick Nap - 14:00 - Back Rich Spirit

Rich Spirit was modest in bumpers, but showed plenty to work on when finishing third to a promising sort on his hurdling debut at Hexham in October, and he built on that effort at Aintree on his next start.

He wasn't in the same form in a Grade 2 at Haydock last month, but he was probably flying too high on that occasion, and he makes plenty of appeal now back down in grade. On the form of his first two starts, he is more than capable of winning a race of this nature.

Catterick Next Best - 13:30 - Back Empty Nest

Empty Nest is a recruit from the Irish pointing field who didn't cut much ice in three starts over hurdles, but he showed his first form on his chasing and handicap debut when hitting the frame over course and distance last month.

He jumped fine and went with plenty of zest, leading a circuit out and pressing on jumping the third-last. Empty Zest probably did too much too soon on that occasion, though, but under a more conservative ride, he is fancied to prove himself well handicapped.

Back Empty Nest @ 15/28.50 on Betfair Sportsbook
