3:05 Southwell Racing Tips (21st March)

Racing TipsSOUTHWELL 3.05
A tight handicap with only 6lbs covering all 8 runners, I've got 3 with enough against them to lay them if there's any value in doing so, Kommander Kirkup is well weighted and my 3rd top rated so could make the frame, Siege Of Boston is 2nd top but this one likes a fast early pace and finish strongly when the leaders are fading but there's only 1 known front runner in this race so if from stall 2 ANGEL PALANAS 8/1 gets to the front here it could prove very hard to catch, I did tip this horse last time it ran but it missed the kick and never features in the race, there was other contenders for the pace setters role that day but here its the only “known” front runner so an easier opportunity to lead all the way in this race.

Angel Palanas 8/1 3rd
Of the 12 runners 7 have been known to lead which is unusual in a 6 furlong race and 3 of my top 4 are possible pace setters, Related, stall 10 and Major Valentine stall 2, are joint 3rd top rated and both front runners so the latter may do best being drawn near the rail, my 2nd top rated is Born To Finish which is an apt name for a hold up type of horse and this one could do best if the front runners go off too fast and tire nearing the end but top rated is SPARKALOT 11/4 who is drawn in stall 5 which isn't too bad and if getting to the front or contest the lead it would have every chance to follow up its win last time out, the price isn't great but i think 7/2 would be about right for its chances.
Sparkalot 11/4 1st
