In the 15.30 at Catterick Miss Macnamara is the current favourite after she ran out a 1 ½ length winner over Zaplamation also at Catterick 1 month ago. In this rematch I think that the John Quinn gelding Zaplamation could be the one to be on for a couple of reasons.
First of all the handicapper has had his say & Zaplamation meets Miss Macnamara 3lb better off at the weights today, to add further assistance a new claiming jockey James J. Doyle has been booked & he’s able to claim a hefty 7lbs therefore giving Zaplamation an enormous 10lb pull in the weights, plenty enough to reverse the placings over 1m7f.
I’m not one to go overboard about the booking of claimers because their inexperience usually doesn’t make up for the claim. However given James J. Doyle has had just 9 rides under rules he’s managed an impressive 2 victories (coming in his last 4 races), a strike rate of 22% is something many of the established jockeys would love to be able to maintain. So he’s clearly quite tidy & John Quinn gave him his 1st ever ride and on his 2nd ride for Quinn, the apprentice landed his 1st ever victory. Today is his 3rd ride for the same trainer.
Zaplamation has been available to trade on in 5 of his last 6 starts proving he’s more than capable within this grade & off his current mark. He’s gone odds on in each of his last two races so that elusive victory can’t be too far away.
Zaplamation can be backed now for 2 points at 5.5 widely at the books. If you want 30% profit then lay off 2.6 points at 4.0, or if you want 50% profit then lay off 3.05 points at 3.5 to give you a 1 point profit in all outcomes.
Best of luck.
