2:40 Southwell Racing Tips (5th January)

Racing Tips
A couple of possible hidden dangers in the field also 5 that have been known to lead, The Amber Fort is 3rd best 5lb below Crosse Fire in 2nd spot but this race may not be run to suit this horse, if GHASEEDAH 5/2 from stall 6 gets to the front it could be very hard to catch and it also has very good trainer/jockey stats pointing to them expecting a big run here.

Ghaseedah 5/2 Unp
A very poor race with very little early pace or horses that have recordable times, the only horse known to lead is Blistering Dancer who has got the plum draw against the rails but its a 17 runner maiden on the aw tracks but hant run on this surface before but it doesnt look as though it will improve it but if allowed a soft lead it could go well but it could set the race up for the topweighted DECLAMATION 8/11 who can follow it round the bends on the rail from stall 2 and then stay on the stronger to win again but my stakes will be kept on the low side as its a poor race and at the price I would only add it into a multi bet as theres no way I would back odds on shot in a 14 runner handicap.

Declamation 8/11 1st

KEMPTON 6.45 Div2
I've skipped the dire 1st division of this race and this is only marginally better, OLAUDAH 5/2 could lead from stall 4 and then be hard to catch especially if it can reproduce its Chelmsford time here, MOSSYS LODGE 8/1 did a time in 2016, again at Chelmsford that could see it make the frame, its got good trainer/jockey stats but may be better over further, PULSATING 5/2 also did its best time at Chelmsford so I will go with 3 small bets to hopefully show a profit.

Pulsating 5/2 1st
Olaudah 5/2 2nd
Mossy Lodge 8/1 7th

Theres just 2 in this field of 11 that have led before and Kodiline has got the prime draw in stall 1 and on its Lingfield times it needs to improve a few spots to win this race, Eljaddaaf is my 3rd top rated but may need further to show its best, Born To Finish is a hold up type who is well weighted and could run on to make the frame but my top rated SPARKALOT 6/1 is the other known front running type so if either leading or contesting the lead it could then prove very hard to catch here.

Sparkalot 7/1 7th
