LONDONIA (7.50) can bring his stamina into play in the concluding two-mile apprentices' handicap at Southwell.
Likely favourite Thawry is a quicker horse but has been plying his trade here over 1m 4f. His stamina has to be taken on trust but there are no such worries over Londonia, a course and distance winner off an identical rating last February. He ran well enough (fifth) behind Sophar Sogood here over 1m 6f 19 days ago to think she remains in decent form. William Carver is a good booking.
XCELENTE (6.20) landed some hefty bets when drawing more than four lengths clear over course and distance 12 days ago and a 9lb rise may not put the brakes on his progress at Southwell. He was pipped on his previous start by 50-1 shot Xtara (runs 4.50), so a good run from that horse in a warm opener would bolster confidence.
IVAQUESTION (6.50) pipped hot favourite Island Nation at Kempton (pair clear) and could easily follow up if taking to this Fibresand surface.
