2:50 Catterick – Laakhof
Declan Carroll has done well with the horses he has picked up from Dermot Weld in recent years, with Emiyn, Natchez Trace and Motahassen all winning races multiple times for the Malton stable, and proving profitable for punters who have backed them blind, so it’s interesting that Carroll sends out another ex-Weld runner in the shape of LAAKHOF in a low-grade sprint handicap here.
Laakhof was disappointing last season after a promising handicap debut, but it’s worth noting that Weld had a poor time of things last year by his high standards, and the BHA handicapper has given the son of Profitable a real chance with an opening British mark of 50, which is 11lb lower than the mark he gained in Ireland, and 8lb lower than when beaten at the Curragh in August when last seen.
He starts out in very modest company and is well drawn in stall nine, so ought to go well if ready to go.
The fitting of a tongue tie could be viewed as a negative, but also offers a reason why he wasn’t firing in 2022, and it does suggest he’s expected to be fit enough.
