BANK on an Astra motoring home in Leicester’s 1.50.
ASTRACAD (nap) has a tremendous record when fresh and he’s incredibly well weighted.
His third behind The Romford Pele on his comeback run last season would be good enough and he’s now 19lbs lower in the handicapper.
BALLASALLA (2.05 Catterick, nb) jumped nicely when runner-up on his chase debut at Carlisle. This looks a nice opportunity for him.
ATTENTION PLEASE (2.40 Catterick, treble) toughed it out to win at Musselburgh three weeks ago.
He was successful on his last visit to this track and the ground should be perfect.
