ALAN is eyeing a fab Friday with three all three selections running on the all-weather.
RESTIVE scored by an aggregate of 11 lengths when winning twice in four days at Southwell this time last year (when trained by Iain Jardine) and Jim Goldie will be hoping for an action replay this afternoon.
Luke Morris doesn’t ride often for the Scottish trainer and Restive gets the vote over another course specialist, Star Ascending, and the Richard Hughes-trained Amitie Waltz, a course winner over a one mile.
A strong field has assembled for the Conditions Stakes and a chance is taken on NOT SO SLEEPY. He hasn’t raced on the Fibresand but Hughie Morrison has an excellent Southwell record.
Not So Sleepy ran a terrific race in the November Handicap at Doncaster when a strong-finishing second to Royal Line and has been most consistent this season.
The Goldie boys will be stopping off at Newcastle to saddle INSURPLUS, a course and distance winner last November off a 2lb lower mark.
