ONCE again the weather is wreaking havoc with the racing card but it looks like Southwell might survive and they have managed to put together a nice card of bumpers for jumps horses to give them a run.
My bet of the day is MAGIC DANCER who lines up in the first race on the card. He is 4lb clear of Swashbuckle on official flat ratings and is even further clear of the rest.
Young Richard Patrick is a capable apprentice who takes off another 5lb and I think it should be a steering job for him.
