After the PN poll finished and the first two runners had finished 2nd & 3rd, I messaged Charlie and said, the 3rd will win now, that’s sod’s law as it received NO votes… Yep true to form it won…. Oh well, these thing’s happen, it wasn’t the first time and it certainly won’t be the last I can imagine! Anyway that has gone and time to focus on Tuesday. There is NO Charlie today as he is taking a day away, so it’s just me & the PN Choices I am afraid folks, so let’s crack on….
Peoples Nap Choices – Southwell(AW) – Standard
2.30 – Handicap – Class 5 – 3YO Only – 7f 14y
Helen Sherbet -Won here over C/D by 3 & 1/2 lengths in a Class 4 Handicap on January 9th before stepping up to 1m at this course last time out, finishing 3rd of 5 by 3 & 3/4 lengths and unsuited by step up. Now drops back to 7f and down in class – 11/4
3.05 – Sprint Handicap – Class 3 – 5f
Foolaad – Has won last two over C/D. A Class 4 C/D Handicap winning by 1 & 3/4’s of a length from Brother Tiger on December 29th before landing a Class 2 C/D Handicap by a neck from Tricky Dicky on January 23rd. Now drops to Class 3 in search of 3 C/D wins on the bounce – 15/8
4.40 – Handicap – Class 6 – 1m 4f 14y
Spiritoftomintoul – Beaten 3rd at Kempton on December 20th in a 1m 7f Class 6 Handicap, before finishing a 1 length Runner Up last time out at Chelmsford in this class over 2m from Western Way, who has since won again. Now drops in trip – 11/4
PN Result(Monday) – Get On The Yager – Runner up…..
Charlie’s Results –
Not a great day for Charlie, who could only manage one 2nd with Sky Full of Star’s, sadly his other two runners both finished 6th meaning a losing day. Charlie didn’t find anything inspiring from Tuesday’s cards so is having a no bet day and all that’s left is the Final Word so let’s crack on with that…
Final Word –
There’s not a lot else to add really…. except in the opener at Southwell – 1.30 Novice Stakes…. See’s Pacific Fleet, who was last seen in July finishing 3rd to Wells Farhh Go( Won the Acomb Group 3 beating James Garfield) in a Class 3 Novice contest at York over 7f, makes season return and is coming across Dawn Dancer, who is race fit from finishing Runner up at this course over 1m, behind War Path(Since won) and 3rd that day was Desert Wind, who has won twice….. Interesting race!
Thanks for popping by folks and I wish you all the best – Rich
