Point-to-point: Caught In Dawn can make amends in open
Saturday 18 February 2006
The recent rain has ensured that the going should be good to firm at only one meeting, today's North Hereford, so there is likely to be competive racing at all the weekend's nine fixtures.
The North Hereford regularly attracts the most runners - there were 135 last season - and there are again 10 races with 252 entries.
Caught At Dawn, only seventh on his reappearance in the men's open there last year, has had the benefit of an outing last month. That should give him the edge on his rivals, including Well Ted, who usually needs a run, in this year's renewal (1.00). Well Ted's stablemate Watchyourback, successful on his first start for Dick Baimbridge a fortnight ago, looks the answer to the ladies' open (1.30).
* Last week's postponed Harkaway Club meeting at Chaddesley Corbett, takes place next Saturday.
