2:20 Southwell Racing Tips (6th March)

Southwell Racing Tips
I think Sir Hector and/or Archimedes my 4th top rated will set the pace here and set the race up for a finishing type, Socialites Red is well weighted and my 3rd best but hasn't won in 15 attempts on the all weather surfaces, 2nd top is Something Lucky and is a hold up type but top rated is CROSSE FIRE 11/2 who normally tracks the pace setters and then stays on strongly at the finish and showed its nearing its best form when finishing 2nd last time out and Luke Morris is taking the ride again.

Crosse Fire 11/2 2nd
I've split this race into 5 lays and 3 that could win BUT and yes it is a big but, there's no known front runner in the race which always makes it a lot harder to predict how the race might be run, NAPPING 11/4 hasn't any form on this surface but did finish 2nd at Lingfield and this new to the game trainer has a 1-1 record at this course and the jockey is 3-7 for the stable so it appears that the connections are expecting a big run in this race, the 2 it will have to beat are Captain Bob my 2nd top rated and HISAR 11/4 my top rated, both will be staying on at the finish unless the race is run at a crawl and turns into a 2 furlong dash (maybe something to trade in running) but my stakes will be kept low just because I'm not sure if there will be a fast early pace.

Napping 11/4 4th
