Alan Thomson has pinpointed two tasty bets at Southwell on Thursday
CHARLIE ARTHUR (4.20) strode almost four lengths clear on a previous visit to Southwell and is fancied to dish out similar treatment to his rivals in the one-mile handicap.
Richard Hughes should be worth following in the weeks ahead as he has his all-weather team in top trim and Charlie Arthur is preferred to another course and distance scorer, Velvet Vision, and Lingfield third Dr Jekyll.
BOLT N BROWN (4.50) maintained a punishing gallop from flagfall to score over hurdles at Ludlow 15 days ago and Luke Morris is sure to make plenty of use of him in the 1m 4f handicap.
Motahassen was no match for in-form Arabian King last time but his third to Princess Harley and Cold Harbour over course and distance entitles him to plenty of respect.
