Southwell 1:25 betting tip: Navajo to follow up from C&D win at Southwell
Navajo Dawn got off the mark on the AW on the third time of asking at Southwell earlier this month and she will be ready to have the same outcome on the fibresand on the Nottinghamshire-based course in the Ladbrokes Where The Nation Plays Handicap (Southwell 1:25).
The three-year-old showed some modest form on turf but she has been a lot better since switching to the AW. She was properly fancied to run strongly final time as she went off because the 7/2 favourite before scoring by simply over a length.
Robyn Brisland’s filly has been raised 4lb for that win which appears fair from the handicapper. She is open to additional enchancment on this floor so she might continue to stand up the weights over the next couple of months.
The daughter of Dawn Approach has Kieran O’Neill on board again and the pair can staff up for a follow up success the place they’re 11/8 within the betting to take action.
Southwell 2:30 tip: Private Matter looks set for extra success
Private Matter ended a long run with out victory when he got his nostril in front at Southwell final month and that could probably be a sign that the gelding is again to his finest. He is bidding to add to his tally over this C&D in the Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap (Southwell 2:30).
Amy Murphy’s gelding ended 2019 with two good runs at Southwell. He came home second in a 6f contest in November, while a month later he stepped up in trip to prevail in a 14-runner area.
Jack Mitchell opted to make all on Private Matter on their final outing and it was an excellent call. The six-year-old had enough left in the tank in the closing phases when he was challenged by his rivals who have been unable to pass him.
At his absolute best on the monitor, Private Matter was rated at 106 so this latest 5lb rise to a mark of 74 is nicely within his reach. Take the latest winner at 2/1 to come out on high over this C&D once once more.
Wolverhampton 5:20 choose: Mount Wellington to rise above rivals at Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton is a racecourse the place Mount Wellington boasts a incredible record with two wins and two second place finishes from his four starts. The sprinter can enhance his strike-rate in the Midlands within the Online Casino Handicap (Wolverhampton 5:20).
Since switching to Stuart Williams’ yard back in November, the son of Invincible Spirit has been in good type. He was successful over 7f on his penultimate start, scoring by the narrow margin of a neck, whereas he was denied by only a short-head last trip.
With just 1lb extra on his back right now, Mount Wellington needs to be fancied to be in the conversation once extra at the business finish of the race. Williams runner is stepping down 1f but he has won over this trip so there are not any considerations there.
There is likely to be plenty of early pace on this contest which can suit Mount Wellington who will be staying on strongly. He is 7/2 within the betting and that is very appealing in the third race of this twilight card.
