2:00 Southwell Racing Tips (19th December)

Expert Racing Tips
This is a very complex race with only 9 runners, Handsome Dude and Letmestopyouthere could be potential hidden dangers as they haven’t run on this surface but some of their turf form suggests this surface may well suit them. Mujassam moves into 2nd spot with its 7lbs allowance for the apprentice jockey, who does quite well for the stable, TRICKY DICKY 3/1 is the only known front runner in this race and its got stall 1 so it ought to be able to gain control on the rail and then be very hard to catch and it could possibly pinch the race from the front, I’ve only got CROSSE FIRE 16/1 with a better figure and this one is suspect at this distance if there’s a fast early pace but with just the 1 front runner it might not be that fast so I will be going with backing the 2 horses to hopefully cover both angles, obviously I will back Crosse Fire each way at the price but the other one isnt much value but it does have a chance of leading all the way in this race.

Tricky Dicky 3/1 2nd
Crosse Fire 20/1 8th
This race isn’t much better as there are potential dangers lurking around mainly in the shape of Apricot Sky and Kody Ridge, there are 3 known pacesetters and luckily the draw doesn’t matter over this straight 5 furlong course, Red Stripes is one of them and my 2nd top rated but the trainer is 0-10 here and the jockey 0-6 for the stable which doesn’t bode well, Gnaad is my 3rd top rated and looks as though it could make the frame here as long as from stall 1 it’s too far away from the early action which looks likely to come from stall 7 and higher, my top rated is another possible front runner here and if BROADHAVEN HONEY 5/1 gets the lead from the highest stall this 3-year-old could prove very hard to catch and if reproducing its best time ought to lead from start to finish.

Broadhaven Honey 17/2 7th
