THERE are three meetings on Thursday and Thommo's trio of picks all run on the fibresand at Southwell.
CONSTITUENT wore cheek-pieces for the first time when drawing more than three lengths clear in a course and distance seller before Christmas and a 3lb rise is of little concern if Constituent is in the same mood.
Serena Brotherton is a good booking in this amateur riders’ handicap. Ruler Of The Nile made Anna Jammeela fight all the way to the line here last month and has form over this longer trip. Katie Gale continues to slide down the ratings and isn’t discounted.
MISS CRICK, a winning hurdler, should be better served by this galloping track than Wolverhampton last time when staying on into fourth place behind newcomer Ramsbury. Temur Khan was runner-up and holds Miss Crick on the book but the deeper Fibresand should bring Miss Crick’s proven stamina into play. Francophile makes her Southwell debut and will appreciate this slight drop in class.
MR STRUTTER had more than three lengths to spare over First Excel on his last visit to Southwell and with Oliver Stammers taking off 7lb the top weight can go in again.
