Sunny weather has been enjoyed by many parts of the UK for several days now, and that means that the going is good to firm on many racecourses. Catterick happens to be one of those courses, with the going expected to be good to firm today (Wednesday 22 April).
After checking out all of the UK horse racing speed ratings for Catterick, it was interesting to see that the Racing Post had rated just one horse as higher than 100 for speed. That horse is seven-year-old Piceno from the 16:20 Handicap, which is open to Class 3 horses. A field of eight entrants is slated to run.
Piceno also has the highest Racing Post Rating of 108, with Ifwecan a little behind with 105. However, Ifwecan only has a speed rating of 75, which is much lower than the 108 for Piceno. Perhaps an each-way bet could work out.
