PACTOLUS delivered a 5-1 winner for Alan on Wednesday and he has two Southwell picks lined up for Thursday.
MAMA AFRICA is a Southwell regular so there are no ground concerns as she drops into Class 5 company. David Barron’s mare couldn’t contain Three Weeks and Showboating over course and distance but that was a Class 3 event. She likes to race from the front and has every chance of dominating from the stalls. I’ll be disappointed if Mama Africa doesn’t hit the frame at least.
MR CARBONATOR is a frustrating customer but he didn’t do anything wrong when running bang-in-form Azari to a neck over course and distance in mid-December. Temur Khan is likely to go off favourite on the back of his five lengths victory over Miss Crick in a maiden here three weeks ago, while top weight Dommersen split Glan Y Gors and Elysees Palace at Newcastle. His trainer Roger Fell is running into top form.
