PAPA STOUR (1.15) ran out an easy winner at Wolverhampton last week and can defy a fixed penalty at Southwell.
Given his American pedigree, it was no surprise to see Papa Stour improve when witched to an artificial surface and Andrew Balding's colt should take to Fibresand okay.
Oisin Murphy is banging in plenty of winners before flying out to Dubai for their big bucks winter festival and Papa Stour can give away 10lb to the other penalised runner, Sheriff.
Michael Bell's front-runner romped home by six lengths over a mile and will be no pushover.
THA'IR (1.45) is worth an each-way dabble in a wide-open 1m 3f handicap.
Mick Appleby declares a tongue-tie for the first time and this ex-Godolphin horse wasn't beaten far behind Tangramm in a better race at Chelmsford City.
Tha'ir ran an excellent second to in-form General Hazard in a Wolverhampton claimer and is nicely treated if taking to this surface.
Yesterday was something of a disaster and it's amazing how quickly this game can bring you down to earth. Well done to everyone who enjoyed better fortune.
