There's only seven runners which puts me off going for an each-way bet in the race. Red Tide has been known to lead before but I think the most likely leader is Putin and this is my second top rated horse so should have most of these in trouble from an early stage and if it gaining an uncontested lead it would make it even harder to catch. Top rated is SPEIGHTOWNS KID 8/1 who has quite a few spots in hand of the second top rated but it has been running well without winning and moved stables recently and ran badly on its first run for this handler but if they revert to its old tactics of tracking the leaders and not held up like last time out then it must have a decent chance of getting back to winning ways.
12:50 Southwell - Nine runners here with three known possible leaders: De Repente who could be a bit of a hidden danger but I doubt it will spring to fruition in this race. Divertimneti who is my fourth rating and also my second top rated College Doll who hasn't been in form lately. My top rated is WRENINGHAM 12/1. I can't understand the betting as it's weighted to reverse form with Incomparable and that horse is a 15/2 shot, so the selection looks overpriced but I have to say go small in the race and its so close between the top two ratings it could pay to back the selection each way and have an insurance bet on College Doll just in case it gets too far in front for the selection to catch.
4:15 Wolverhampton - Only six runners in this claimer and at this time there's no betting for me to work with. There's no known front runner in the field so I'm not quite sure what's going to happen tactics-wise in the race. On my times it looks like Queen Aggie is my second top rating even though it would probably prefer a longer trip to fulfill its true potential whilst my top rated is NIGHT TRADE. This one can either track the early leaders or can be held up so I'm hoping it can cope with however the race is run but it's not a race to get too heavily involved in.
SUMMARY: 12:20 Southwell - I can't get away from the selection SPEIGHTOWNS KID 8/1 but it has had chances before and not taken them but it does have a decent few spots in hand if it runs to its best but keep stakes low.
12:50 Southwell - I've got to say go each way on WRENINGHAM 12/1 and then have a saving bet on College Doll 11/2 to win just in case the selection makes the frame you will cover the second bet but if College Doll gets to lead all the way we've got it covered.
4:15 Wolverhampton - This is a low-grade claimer and I've got no betting to help but with six runners it's not really a race to be betting each way so it will have to be a win bet on NIGHT TRADE. However, it's not a race to be betting very heavily.
