2:10 Southwell Racing Tips (25th January)

PEARL ACCLAIM could make frame but doubt it can win LAY 3/1
SCUZEME dropped in class good trainer/jockey stats maybe wrong surface Lay 6/1
ZYLAN may need further but dropped in class? Lay 8/1
DECISION MAKER 8 race maiden is it genuine dropped in class Bet? 6/1
CROSSE FIRE top rated and dropped in class here BET 6/1
SOMETHING LUCKY needs to improve again stepping up in class Lay 7/2
ARCHIMEDES may need the run for fitness and maybe outclassed LAY 20/1

Crosse Fire 6/1 5th
Decision Maker 6/1 6th CHELMSFORD 7.00
RECKLESS ENDEAVOUR no course form, needs to improve times
SIGN OF THE ZODIAC could lead here and try to make all EW Bet 10/1
HAKAM wants longer trip and relatively slowish times Lay 5/2
TROPICS may need further, maybe not run to suit here LAY 4/1
ZAC BROWN top rated doesn't want a real fast early pace EW Bet 20/1
ASCOT DAY good trainer record but maybe too far Lay 12/1
FAST TRACK good jockey record here but the horses debut
UPAVON decent trainer/jockey stats could make the frame
SUMMARY: Maybe not a race to get too heavily involved in betting wise but I'm going with 2 small bets on SIGN OF THE KODIAC who could get an easy lead here and then prove very hard to catch but if the leader tries to be clever and doesn't set a fast enough early pace it could play into the hands of ZAC BROWN so I will go with backing them both each way to cover the angles.

Sign Of The Zodiac 10/1 5th
Zac Brown 8/1 7th
