TILSWORTH LUKEY really wasn’t far away last week setting off at a huge 20/1 and finished off well just missing out on a great prize.
This week we gave out a 100/1 shot we backed it on the nose but maybe that was being greedy and a each way bet may have been more suitable as the horse finished 3rd but no chance with the winner.
It would be nice to hit the target with one at a working mans price today and continue with our 3 years’ worth of proofed profits and it’s not like we haven’t landed a 100/1 shot before.
SLOWFOOT didn’t run last week but came out a few days ago in a race that didn’t suit and ran bad still one with potential though as is RIAL who we backed at 33/1 this week still building fitness but the horse is due a win and has been campaigned to get the weight down.
Tuesday’s Horse’s In Focus
Southwell 2-20 Handicap (Class 5) 5f – RUN WITH PRIDE may well be a bit of value in the race at 10/1 widely available 5f looks the right trip on a track like this and hopefully it will ride from the front today. Super consistent on the clock it would be a deserved victory for a horse that doesn’t win as often as he should.
Southwell 2-50 Handicap (Class 6) 12f – MR FRANKIE looks too big at 40/1 and despite finishing behind last race it wasn’t too bad on the clock he looks well weighted and has moved to a stable with their horses running well so there is every chance of an improved performance today with a bit of luck he might need one or 2 to run bad but the price more than reflects that I would have the horse around 12/1 so it’s all the way to value town win lose of draw.
Southwell 4-20 Handicap (Class 4) 8f – Veteran STORM KING 20/1 is out sider of the field yet has been running in much better company it almost looks like a bit of a plot for a stable that is starting to get going. The fibresand will help the horse and this horse looks very over priced as well. Usually a horse that likes to be close to the front it should suit this race.
Southwell 4-50 Handicap (Class 6) 7f – ICONIC FIGURE 15/2 looks like a Southwell specialist when you look at the ratings. A bold bid could be made today and 15/2 is big enough for a risk.
