I was against Elusivity (stall 4 of 8) when he ran at Wolverhampton last week, as he was trying to pull off a rare feat, namely following up a Southwell Fibresand win on Tapeta. In the circumstances he did well to run third to Point North and can be backed on his return to Southwell in the Daily Unibet Early Prices From 9am Handicap (4.30).
He ended a long losing run when hacking up in a course and distance claimer on his penultimate start and, though only third at Wolverhampton last time, he did best of those to chase the strong early pace and earned a huge speed figure from Raceform.
I should also mention my recent antepost recommendation on Southfield Royale for the RSA Chase (non-runner no bet). It now looks as though he’s going to head for the four-mile National Hunt Chase instead and we should back him for that contest now that the majority of firms are NRNB.
Elusivity - Southwell 4.30 (2pts win, 7-2 BetVictor, Bet365, 100-30 generally)
Southfield Royale – National Hunt Chase – Cheltenham, Tuesday 15 March (2pts win 8-1 generally, only use a NRNB firm, which is pretty much every firm except Hills, Coral and Ladbrokes)
