1:45 Southwell Racing Tips (1st January)

Southwell racing tips
MEMORIES GALORE hasn't any surface form but has recorded some good times at Kempton and Newcastle so if taking to this surface it could be dangerous and I cannot discard its chances.
MIDNIGHT MALIBU is my 3rd top rated horse and could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast at the front with half the field having been known to lead before.
KICKBOXER has won over this course and distance but timewise it needs to improve to win this race and one I would look to lay if the price isn't too big.
TILLY TROTTER this horse also has won over this course and distance but its also not in my top 3 ratings and may struggle if the leaders don't cut each other's throats and another I would look to lay price permitting.
ALEEF has only produced slow times over this course and distance and I would once again be looking to lay this one if any value in doing so.
RAZIN HELL a front-runner and my 2nd top rated horse so it could lead and then be very hard to catch but I doubt it will get to set its own pace.
CROSSE FIRE my top rated again here, I was surprised when it led last time out and it faded quickly which wasn't surprising I hope its held up this time.
PENNY DREADFUL the stablemate of the top rated and one of those known to like to lead and if it contests it here it could help its stablemate.
SUMMARY: I've got Crosse Fire as my top-rated but it ran badly last time out and again its stablemate Penny Dreadful is also running but both are out of the handicap maybe not classy enough to compete at this level, so maybe RAZIN HELL 9/2 and MEMORIES GALORE 9/1 could set the pace and then not get caught and I will be looking to back them both to show a profit.

Razin Hell 5/1 2nd
Memories Galore 9/1 5th
