On The High Tops handicapped to strike

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

On The High Tops is potentially thrown-in if the refitting of the blinkers can spark him back to life in the 4.20 at Catterick and at 8/1 makes plenty of each-way appeal.

Ruth Carr’s charge has been very disappointing since scoring on his reappearance last year when beating Flash City by 3/4 of a length at Thirsk.

However that win came off a mark of 76 and he now gets into this off a  career-low of just 56.

That gives him outstanding claims at the weights, especially as he was beaten just 2 lengths into fourth behind Mappin Time lats August off 82.

The four-year-old has also shown good speed in his last two starts before weakening a furlong from home, and he also didn’t run too badly at this venue when fifth of 10 to Nomoreblondes on his seasonal reappearance after 165 days on the sidelines.

He is also taking a drop in grade into class 6 company for the first time, and with the trip and conditions fine this looks the perfect opportunity for him to bounce back and score an overdue success.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way On The High Tops (8/1 Sky Bet)
