Alan Thomson has a brace of Sunday bets at Southwell.
NATIVE SILVER (1.50) looks a bit of value at around 5-1 in the one-mile handicap at Southwell.
The five-year-old has had the misfortune to finish runner-up four times here since late October and was slightly disappointing when fourth to Daafr when quite well fancied 17 days ago.
This is a slightly easier contest, with course specialist Straitouttacompton up 6lb for beating Hotspur Harry.
MASTER BURBIDGE (3.10) shouldn't be far away in the 1m 4f selling handicap. Neil Mulholland's veteran chased home Bill Cody here over two miles last January off a 3lb higher perch and although this trip is on the sharp side, the opposition is very ordinary.
Front-running Ruby Red Empress was only nabbed close home by Beauty Stone at Kempton 11 days ago and wears cheekpieces for the first time. The filly is clearly the one to beat if she handles the Fibresand surface.
