Only the one meeting to concentrate on today, but Southwell has been kind to us of late, so let’s get stuck into something sandy…
The Daily Yankee:
Something Lucky (1420 Southwell), 13/8: Already raced 8 times this year, with 3 wins, 4 seconds and a third. His best form has come at this track, and he has risen just one pound since third just a length behind rival Archimedes, and is now 7lbs better off. He can enjoy the switch back here and should win.
Ochos Rios (1450 Southwell), 5/1: Returned to flat after nearly two years, and has struggled with starts losing significant ground. Still managed to win first time against a highly progressive rival, and if he could get off on slightly better terms then he should be very competitive.
Katie Gale (1520 Southwell), 7/2: We napped Cousin Khee when he won here two days ago, tempting as it is to go back in at 11/10, that looks too short at this reduced trip. Katie Gale lead the Cousin at this distance last time, and although beaten over 3 lengths in the end, she is now 10lbs better off, and that should be enough to spring the surprise.
Sooqaan (1620 Southwell), 8/1: Was on a roll when winning three straight races over this course and distance in January. Has a significant switch in the weights with favourite Mister Music on 7f running here two runs ago, and with the move back to 1 mile likely to suit Sooqaan more than Mister Music, he starts to look good value.
