ROYAL SANDS (6.30 Southwell)
The sire Dabirism is doing well at Southwell, albeit from a small sample size, scoring with four of his seven representatives for a profit of £39.75 to a £1 level stake at SP. ROYAL SANDS contributed to those figures with a 6f success at odds of 10-1 on his penultimate start and can be forgiven his subsequent 5f course defeat as he was drawn closest to the stands’ rail. He looks good value at around the 12-1 mark when he returns to Southwell for the 6f Betway Handicap (6.30).
LOULIN (stall 3 of 14) did best of those drawn high when fourth in a 5f Southwell handicap last time (first four drawn 2, 3, 1 and 9 of 12) and looks solid each-way material from a better berth when she contests the Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap over the same course and distance on Thursday night (7.00).
In the same race I’m also backing ARZAAK (stall 7) who was also badly drawn when sixth of 12 over this trip and track last time (first six drawn 1, 5, 3, 4, 7 and 12). This middle draw will suffice and he’s another who will be hard to kick out of the frame, assuming that the same low-draw bias is in evidence.
GLOBAL MELODY (8.00 Southwell)
GLOBAL MELODY was stuck wide throughout and challenged on the slowest part of the track when an 11-1 third of 14 in an amateur riders’ 6f handicap at Southwell last week and can be backed to go two places better in the 7f Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap (8.00). His jockey was having her first ride that day and it was a huge effort in the circumstances. The step back up to 7f won’t hurt (he has form at a mile) and his yard is in great form.
