3:05 Southwell Racing Tips (27th March) BEST ODDS AT BOOKMAKERS.CO.UK HANDICAP

Beacon Tarn can either track the leaders or lead and may get an uncontested lead. It comes out second on my figures making it a danger and with that in mind the 11/4 on offer is probably a fair price. Shawkantango will either track the leaders or be held up and from the outside draw - in stall eight - it may be held up. Hopefully get a decent position from which to attack the leader at the finish. Derek Shaw's charge has the best figures and with a bit of luck should prove the strongest. Keep It Dark has
poor form on the all weather but does like to track the leaders. Its been off course since October 30th so may need the run. Apha Tauri has only produced slow times at this course but over six furlongs and will find this trip too sharp. It also likes to track the leaders but may find the opposition too fast for it to stay in contention. Flash City can either track the leaders or lead but its times don't put it in my top three so doubt it will be good enough. Pull The Pin has been known to lead or track the leaders but its times are slow so doubt it will be able to dominate here. Prince Of Passion has been known to either lead or track the leaders but may find this trip too short and struggle with these speedier types. Waabel has got poor form over the course and distance.

SUMMARY: Four horses have been known to lead. Beacon Tarn may get an uncontested lead and be hard to catch. The only horse with a faster time is SHAWKANTANGO who could sit handily just off the pace and prove the strongest. I'm a bit surprised it's as big as 13/2 and worth a bet. (E.R.I.C.)
