Suitcase N’Taxi 3rd at Catterick

Suitcase N’Taxi ran yesterday in the Novice Median Auction Stakes at Catterick over six furlongs where David Allan took the ride.

From the gates, Suitcase broke smartly and as with all 6 furlong races at Catterick, the jockeys scrambled for a decent position heading into the bend.

The leaders were setting a decent gallop and David held Suitcase in mid division in the early furlongs of the race. On the turn into the straight, David asked Suitcase to pick up and he did, passing rivals and moving into second position behind the sweetly travelling leader. Suitcase maintained his effort and tried to make inroads but the leader ran out an impressive winner and Suitcase was collared late on and finished 3rd,  a very good effort from the Tim Easterby trained 2 year old who has now been in the money on 2 consecutive starts.

Carbutts Ridge runs tonight in the Denford Stud Handicap over 1 mile at Newbury, a winner last time out, he is consistent but the Andrew balding trained Fort Jefferson is a warm and worthy favourite, good luck to connections.
