Staying at Catterick, the Scott Dixon-trained SIR GEOFFREY looks worth a small investment in the closing 5f handicap (5.15pm). The nine-year-old hasn’t won since scoring over track and trip last June on soft ground, but he has taken a tumble in the weights as a result and lines up today off a 9lb lower mark, and 4lb lower than when finishing third over 6f at Southwell on his latest start at the end of July.

That was a welcome return to form and given all his wins have come over the minimum trip it was no surprise to see him fade close home that day, having tried to make all. Connections may decide on identical tactics here and they have gone to the trouble of booking champion jockey elect Silvestre De Sousa, who should be able to make the most of a favourable low draw in stall two.
