We move from the speed favouring Lingfield track and surface to the galloping grind that is Southwell’s fibresand play pit – a haven for course specialists.
The Daily Yankee:
Seasearch, (1515 Southwell), 11/4: A race where few have Southwell experience. Hot favourite Canford Thompson does, but all bad, not finishing within 10l of the winners in 3 previous runs. Seasearch has looked one paced in a short career to date, but one paced at Southwell works as long as you just keep going.
Best Tamayuz (1550 Southwell), 9/4: we are cranking up the course specialism here as the experienced Best Tamayuz makes a 27th course appearance chasing a 6th course win. The last of those came last week, and a modest weight rise leaves the door open for a repeat effort.
Cousin Khee (1620 Southwell), 11/4: proper veteran status now as 11yo Cousin Khee aims for a 3rd course win in his 7th race here. He was a very tidy winner here last time off 63, and a 4lb increase looks manageable. Better suited to the long grind home than rival Western Way who prefers a fast finish tactic and is new to Southwell.
General Tufto, (1655 Southwell), 8/1: The king of all course specialists, the ancient 13yo warrior hits the Southwell track for the 117th time. His 15 wins only include one in the last 3 years, but he loves to stay on from off a strong pace, and he is assured that here. This class 7 event is the lowest grade he has ever seen in that lengthy career, and the old boy may just slug his way past this terrible field.
