A look at Southwell for Tuesday..

Reading through the form of this card was like pulling teeth tonight and a word of caution to anybody playing these selections. Keep it minimal there will be better days and to be truthful i will play these as i see fit come race time as it really is an awful card.

Five for today that i have eeked out ... Backs to lay for your percentage play.

2:10 Southwell Will be interesting to see how short Hitches Dubai is ? But after a 216 day lay off could be a tad ring rusty and was well beaten off a similar mark on his handicap debut.Sir Nod won well on his seasonal debut and is still on a mark that he can be competitive on. Where's Reiley although loving the course and on an upward trend looks high enough in the weights now, First Swallow 8lb better off for a length. The selection here is Spic N Span a horse that likes to be prominent has the c&d form and won off this mark back in July. A very competitive starter , one in which a 10% trade would be my maximum play and would want a double figure price.

4:10 Southwell Looks like Fuzzy Cat will be favourite for this , but an interest is shown in Madison Belle back down to 6f likes to lead has the c&d form and a scan of her form shows that her last three 6f handicaps here have produced an 8th off a much higher mark, a 4l seventh and a win off a similar mark to today. Not inspiring but the booking of Hanagan looks a plus. Again 10% trade on what looks a decent back to lay.

4:40 Southwell Xpress Maite is dropping to a mark he will soon take advantage of , just not sure it will be over a mile and therefore is discarded today. Mozayada has been knocking on the door and remains on the same mark as last time when a length and a quarter second over c&d and in an uninspiring race is taken as the one for the back to lay.Bolodenka is the worry as his turf form is far superior to any of these.

5:10 Southwell There will come a point when Vogarth decides to put his best foot forward as he is now below his last two winning marks and the return to 7f should see him in a better light , can run both ways , has the c&d form and will be a minimal play once again.

5:40 Southwell Don't think Don Pele, although a c&d under his name, shows his best form here . Royal Envoy who can run both ways is selected in the hope he takes a prominent role in proceedings is on a mark where he should be competitive and once again a minimum trade is advised.

Very Gluck
