2:00 Southwell Racing Tips (3rd January)

SOUTHWELL 2.00 

There are 2 known front-running sorts in this race, Liamba from stall 8 who is my 4th top rated and Point Zero in stall 9 who comes out 3rd top so there should be a true run pace, in 2nd top spot I've got First Excel who can be held up or track the leaders but my top rated and topweight is MR STRUTTER 3/1 who won last time out and the stable have employed a 7lb claiming apprentice to offset it rise in the weights and the apprentice has won 6 races for Mark Johnston so he looks a good booking. 

Mr Strutter 3/1 4th 

SOUTHWELL 2.35

 In this 5 furlong dash there's 5 horses that have been known to set the pace in previous races, the bottom weight Decision Maker is capable of recording a fast time but usually in lower class races than this, Mininggold and Pearl Acclaim are joint 2nd top rated and both like to track the pacemakers and drawn next to each other in stalls 2 and 3, my top rated is CROSSE FIRE 6/1 a front-running type and if it gets to the front ought to be hard to catch in this race and will hopefully lead from start to finish. 

Crosse Fire 6/1 3rd 

CHELMSFORD 5.55 

The bottom weight Something Lucky is capable of fast times but it may struggle to win in this class but could feasibly make the frame, Captain Lars looks the most likely pacesetter here but would need to improve to hold on for the victory but maybe a chance of a place, the topweight Gracious John hasn't many runs over this c/d recently but would have a chance to be competitive on its old form, TROPICS 8/1 is my 2nd top rated and usually stays on strongly at the finish over this minimum trip and could be the one to prosper if VERNE CASTLE 9/2 my top rated doesn't run to its best but the apprentice jockeys 5lb claim moves it quite a few spots ahead of the others. 

Tropics 10/1 1st 
Verne Castle 9/2 5th

CHELMSFORD 6.25

 A nice class 4 race with 3 of the 9 runners having led before, I've got Becker as my 3rd top rated and usually likes to track the leaders and could be the one to prosper if my 2 higher rated horses go off too fast and fade, Joegogo is 2nd top rated and a possible pacesetter from stall 4 but I have MIDNIGHTLY 12/1 rated a few spots clear and if this one gets to the front it could possibly lead all the way here and the booked jockey has a decent 16% win rate for this stable so an each way wager seems the way to go.

Midnightly 25/1 9th
