4:50 Southwell Racing Tips (3rd May)

Southwell racing
SOUTHWELL 4.50
Quite a poor race with just 6 runners and only 2 of them have gone fast enough to register on my figures, Fareeq is 2nd top despite looking as this trip is too short for it and this surface isn't its favourite either but there's only one known front runner in the race and if ROY'S LEGACY 7/2 gets its own way at the front it could prove very hard to catch and i will be surprised if it doesn't lead from pillar to post.

Roy's Legacy 9/2 5th
MUSSELBURGH 5.40
This time there's 12 runners but only 3 with registered times in fact there's 7 I would be looking to lay if there's any value, only Goninodaethat is known as a front runner so could be dangerous but i doubt it will do enough to win the race, Our Place In Loule is 3rd top rated and usually tracks the leaders, my 2nd top rated is Cheeni and this one is usually a hold up type, the jockeys 0-28 for the stable puts me off, top rated is SEE VERMONT 6/1 who usually races prominently without quite leading but this one is reliant on the going being good to firm and if the going is adequate then it has every chance to get back to winning ways.

See Vermont 13/2 3rd
CHELMSFORD 8.20
Things don't get much better with this race having only 3 with registered figures, 2 known front runners and one of them Roy's Dream is my 3rd top rated but will need others to falter to stay there all the way to the line, Arcanista comes out 2nd top is 0-19 on the all-weather but the trainer has a 17% win rate here but the 7lb claiming apprentice is 0-3 for the stable so I'm not quite sure what to expect but it would need to improve to beat BILLYOAKES 9/2 if this one repeats its best time recorded this year and this ones trainer has a 16% win rate and the jockey has an 18% win ratio for this stable which all points to connections expecting a big run here.
