Daily Mail tipster Sam Turner concentrates on Southwell with two standout selections from his speed ratings.
Luscifer (Southwell. 5.30)
LUSCIFER had been threatening to land a first blow after joining Tony Carroll and duly obliged over course and distance just on Friday.
The selection had shown little for Richard Hughes but the change of scenery and the switch to Fibresand has done the trick. Beaten just half a length over a mile at the Rolleston venue on his first visit, Luscifer reappeared down to 7f and, well-backed, took the race apart to score by a very easy three lengths. It was an impressive performance for the grade and there were no issues with kickback.
Connections have opted to strike again under a penalty and Ben Curtis - in such fine form this year - is rewarded with the ride again.
The victory was no fluke and Luscifer can follow up.
Social City (Southwell, 8.00)
Hayley Turner is also going well and teams up with SOCIAL CITY who is lightly-raced and looking to bounce back after bumping into decent hurdler/chaser Padleyourowncanoe at Lingfield last time.
The winner has since proved imperious at today’s venue and whilst Social City is not in the same league, follows the identical route by heading to Southwell. He has run well enough here before over 3f shorter but rates a better horse over staying distances and won for the first time at Chelmsford over this afternoon’s trip on his penultimate outing. A slow learner, he was still running green but eventually the penny fully dropped and he won in some style.
This looks competitive but with room for improvement, Social City is the pick.
