Fearless Warrior followed up his recent course and distance win in some style under his 6lb penalty in the 1m4f handicap, with jockey Eddie Ahern able to take a long leisurely look around at toiling rivals around the home bend as he joined issue with front-running China Pink
, a lily-flowered type with intense pink blooms (pictured).
Although she ran well from the front at Kempton last time, that might not be the way to play it here if, as I expect, they revert to forcing tactics on China Pink
Sir Mark Prescott has the best wins-to-runs percentage (30%) of trainers on duty at Catterick and saddles his only runner of the day, China Pink
, in the 1m4f handicap (4.
was given an enterprising ride by Joe Fanning in the 1m3f handicap and the front-running tactics paid off as the 3-1 shot kept on strongly to beat Bella Medici.
He is entered at Yarmouth and Folkestone on Thursday, while holding two possible engagements at Brighton on Friday China Pink

Growth predictions for China pinks in different substrates prior to flowering are important for planning commercial production because they will allow growers to estimate distribution dates and calculate when to start production.
The aim of this research was to characterize plant height and leaf number of China pinks grown in seven different substrates, using the logistic growth model.
Growth curves for plant height (Figure 1) and leaf number (Figure 2) for China pinks differed according to the different substrates.
Therefore, this model may be used to generate growth curves for the cultivation of China pinks in different substrates.
The growth of China pinks can be characterized using the logistic model, in terms of leaf number or plant height as a function of degree days, when the plants are grown in optimal conditions.
