Haydock Tip: Kodicat
Disadvantaged by racing away from the main pack at Thirsk but beat her nearest rival easily and finished a good second in a fast time for the grade.
Kodicat only has one career victory to her name but she’s run plenty of good races and should capitalise off a mark in the low 60s.
Last time out she was one of two horses to race up the nearside rail at Thirsk. Racing away from the main pack is usually a disadvtange but Kodicat still finished 1.25 lenghts behind the winner and 11.75 lengths of the horse she races with. The time of the race was also strong for the grade so the form should be solid.
My main concern is the ground. She won on good to firm over 5f but has since run her best races on good to soft. There isn’t enough evidence either way so i’m happy to risk the going and learn from it if necessary.
