Timeform pick out the three best bets at Catterick on Monday...
"He sets a very good standard in this race and is open to further improvement..."
Timeform on Gold Miner
Gold Miner - 12:20 Catterick
A lightly-raced winner in points, Gold Miner looked potentially useful making his debut under Rules at Leicester last month, travelling like the best horse in the race and still in front when pecking on landing after the last, leaving the odds-on winner to get the better of him late on. He sets a very good standard in this race and is open to further improvement, so is difficult to oppose as he attempts to go one better.
Mick Maestro - 13:30 Catterick
Despite a 21-month absence, Mick Maestro returned full of zest on his first outing for Nick Kent at Carlisle in October, proving as good as ever to finish third, and he built on that effort to gain his first victory for his new trainer at Doncaster last month, value for more than the winning margin too as it was only a blunder at the final flight that saw him start to flounder. He was in the process of going well again when departing three out at the latter named venue last time, yet to be asked for an effort when coming to grief, and this could prove a good opportunity for him to make amends off an unchanged mark.
Maison d'Or - 15:07 Catterick
Maison d'Or has been running with credit this term, hitting the frame in each of his three outings over obstacles, including when second over this course and distance last time, proving himself still in good heart as he stayed on from two out. He rarely runs a bad race at Catterick, and with a fair few of his rivals here having a bit to prove, another positive showing seems assured.
