Sam Turner landed his double yesterday, with the very well backed Athollblair Boy the highlight.
Tynecastle Park (Southwell, 3.25)
TYNECASTLE PARK had the misfortune to bump into Paddleyourowncanoe on Friday, who was making it two wins in a row on the all-weather as he builds towards a spring NH campaign.
Colin Tizzard’s gelding is better known for his jumping exploits but is no slouch on an artificial surface having won three times. So there was no disgrace in defeat for Tynecastle Park who kept on gamely after being headed but had no answers in the end.
It may well turn out a decent effort and the seven-year-old now moves up in class and, with a fine record on Fibresand (only out of the frame once), has a big shout in a poorly attended stayers’ handicap.
Decision Maker (Southwell, 4.35)
The finale is a typically scrappy looking contest and one that DECISION MAKER can take following a rout over course and distance a week ago.
That was a second win at the track this year and a big return to form after being well beaten at Newcastle the time before - a track he normally runs well. However, that was over 7f and he looked a different horse back at Southwell over today’s distance, always travelling strongly and going clear in the final furlong. There was time to ease down and whilst penalised 5lb today, he is due an 8lb rise.
Decision Maker is progressing on this surface and this rates a decent opportunity to make it a third track victory.
