Good ground in this undulating and galloping track
1.35 Willie Mullins andalsia is one of his more modest intakes but is still a short priced fav in this big field opener. She’s been front running but still getting picked up late on. Way Back Home has run well in all of his completed efforts and cud just pick the fav up late on.
1/4pt win Way back Home @ 2/1
2.05 Black Tears has 1 win and 5 seconds on her record and certainly comes into this the one to beat, but 4/6 no appeal.
3.05 very little between all of these at the weights, but on quick ground and with a good race make up for a front runner, Nick Lost could take some catching , despite going up in trip.
1/4pt win Nick Lost @ 9/4
3.35 An interesting contest for amateur riders, open to jockeys across the Irish Sea.Chances can be given to many but te nod goes to the consistent School Lane , who deserves a win for consistent efforts of late and fine with trip and ground. An excellent lady jockey rides.
1/4pt Win School Lane @ 4/1
4.05 Hard to knock Mandarin Monarch of late, and despite only having a level chance with some of these at the weights, ticks the boxes for trip, ground and best current form.
1/4pt win Mandarin Monarch @ 7/2
4.35 Father Jed was a cosy winner over C&D last time , coming off the pace and winning as he liked. The 6 pound hit Is of course a worry, but he has been rated higher in the past.
1/4pt Win Father Jed @6/1
Selected Southwell- All weather- fibresand
2.0 0 The clear form horse is Gogeous General , but is now on a testing mark and despite no issues wit the surface, the longer trip is a worry. Clear opportunity for liamba who was a good 3rd over C&D recently off a higher mark, but just a small play considering her poor win record.
1/4pt win liamba @ 7/4
2.30 PREMIUM RACE
3.30 This is so wide open and possible to make a case for all seven.
3.30 screaming Demon is the shot priced fav, but he’s never won, drops in trip , and first try on this specialist surface. Baron Run has done well here n the past but his last win was almost 5 years ago. At the weights, Sooqaan just gets the nod over grey destiny and both are effective over C&D.
1/4pt win sooqaan @ 7/2
No Southwell placepot
Selected Plumpton- very soft ground on this gently undulating and sharp track
2.10 Acey Milan was one of the better bumper horses last year , but hasn’t transferred that over hurdles, and today’s drop on trip wont help. Baddesley Knight won really well last time and keeps his form well. Softer ground no issue and taken to defy the penalty .
1/2pt Win Baddesley Knight @ 2/1
2.40 All three of these have solid claims.

Good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.50 younoso is the only one with recent winning for, but the longer trip and quicker ground asks questions. At the odds, the well weighted Samtu worth a dabble.
1.4pt Win Samtu @ 6/1
None of the trip have evet attempted this trip and the in form short priced fav Field Exhibition is more potent on softer ground.
3.50 Saryshagann did well on his hurdles debut and should make np mistake here, but not for me at 4/5.
4.20 Cool Valley did really well over C&D two runs back on similar ground but flopped last time down in trip. Old Salt’s recent form has been poor and will need the 4 months break to have a positive effect to take this.
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytack
5.15 Finding it easy to pass on this low grade handicap with any number of possible , but few known for consistency.
5.45 Ulster recently returned from a very length break to score impressively over C&D , but second race back is always the acid test for long time absentees, and as the rest are much of a muchness. Skipping again.
6.15 The way she’s going, they’ll be naming a race after her here as the very wonderful Chloellie has won 5 of her 7 races here and comes into this on the back of a career best run beating the reliable Chica De La moche by a few lengths and despite a further 3 pound penalty looks set to confirm the form and her old rival hardly let the form down with a good 2nd last time. Rippling waters is only penalised a pound for a good win last time, but the drop in trip no help when the capable Titan Goddess can only be watched for now after a shocking run last time and is badly drawn tonight .
3/4pts Win chloellie @ 9/4
6.45 The penny has certainly dropped with Sir Ox who comes here on hat-trick and one of those wins came over C&D , but the 6 pound hit wont be easy to overcome up in grade. My dear Friend ran really well over C&D last time chasing home Spirit Warning , who has won well since. Expect him to be front rank under the excellent Oisin Murphy and my only reservation is last time was his first run for a while,so hopefully no bouncing.
1/2pt Win My Dear Friend @ 9/2
7.15 Found myself going round in circles in this wide open handicap.
7.45 Another open handicap but the reliable Colwood Is holding his form well and no reason why he wont run his race and go close in this.
1/4pt ew Colwood @ 5/1
