It’s helped to be drawn wide on the round course at Southwell so far this month, with the handicap winners over 6f-1m berthed as follows…
9 of 11

Four of the five handicap winners over 1m4f+ were also drawn in one of the three highest stalls and it could pay to avoid those in low stalls on Sunday.
ESSENTIAL (stall 13 of 14) could be well drawn in the opening 7f SW And At Darby Memorial Handicap (2.05) and this course and distance winner will be happier back at this venue after his last-time out fifth over the extended mile trip at Wolverhampton. He found 6f too sharp when a modest second here the time before and the return to this in-between trip is ideal.
Essential – Southwell 2.05 (1pt win, 11-2 generally)
