SOUTHWELL'S all-weather track is only one to survive the arctic conditions today, with Huntingdon, Sedgefield and Leopardstown all falling foul of the winter weather.
It was slim pickings yesterday with all the jumps racing cancelled but that didn’t stop me landing both tips at 8/1 and 6/4. Happy days.
Today is even slimmer pickings with just one all weather meeting going ahead at Southwell but there is one that has caught my eye.
That horse is TILLY DEVINE in the lucky last at 4.55pm at Southwell. This quality of race (Class 7) is real bargain basement stuff and most of these are one step away from being retired to cart horse status. As such the race shouldn’t take much winning and I reckon there are only 3 or 4 who can do so from a field of 10.
The handicap debutant Street Sensation has shown nothing so far in maiden races but could potentially have some improvement and he is the main danger. Tilly Devine though has shown some reasonable for form at this level and particularly over this course and distance which is crucial. He will be there or thereabouts today and is solid each way bet.
