We found a nice little midweek winner yesterday (“Wednesday Races: Dream On…“) when Relentless Dreamer stayed on dourly to land our 6/1 recommendation.
Today we switch codes to the sands of Southwell. We love the Nottinghamshire track even if it just about the lowest grade of UK racing. The unique qualities of the surface provide for some fine betting opportunities.
We were frustrated to miss 11/1 winner Mama Africa on Tuesday whose Southwell maiden win, her first visit to the surface, was hugely underestimated by handicapper and punters alike next time out.
The Mile handicap (1215) today offers a chance of redemption with two recent course maiden winners stepping back to handicaps.
Tilly Devine was 100/1 in victory in her maiden in first time blinkers. She is fancied in the market and could repeat although it’s worth noting her previous course experience was a last place.
Moving Robe won her maiden at 20/1 on course debut last time. That was a decent effort, and, like Mama Africa, it might just have shown that Moving Robe’s ideal surface is this Fibresand, and she is now capable of running well above her rating.
If that is the case then she is very well priced and can add to our Southwell CV…
By way of footnote, our leg-in-a-horse, The Go Tou Man, makes his hurdling debut at Towcester (1225) today. The stiff track will suit, but at this stage it is still a learning experience for him and us alike. Good luck to the Harrys (trainer and jockey).
Recommendation: Moving Robe, (1215 Southwell), 1pt win, 11/2 generally available
