5:20 Southwell Racing Tips (21st February)


As usual a class 6 race attracts the biggest field of my beloved sprints, just shows how many poor horses there is in training, but a little strange that there's only 3 front runners in this 5 furlong dash, I will concentrate on my top 3 ratings, Twentysvnthlancers looks in the grip of the official handicapper after its win 5 runs ago, Novabridge has tried 11 times before on this course without winning but it has run the odd good race here and it could make the frame but I doubt it will catch the front running ARCHIE STEVENS 16/1 if this one puts in one of its better efforts and I will have an each way bet but my stakes in this race won't be at full strength. 

Archie Stevens 50/1 Unp


A strange looking complicated race with only 6 runners and any stakes will be kept low, the top 2 horses, Always A Dream, 2nd top on a Kempton time, and Lalania, 2nd top on c/d times, could run decent races but would need to improve to beat, AVON GREEN 16/1 who is top rated using its best Kempton time but it hasn't run over this c/d before and will need to be held up for a late run at this distance, top-rated using c/d times is DREAMBOAT ANNIE 10/1 who has done its best times on turf when leading but hasn't led on the aw tracks before but has a decent chance here to lead all the way but I will go with having smallish bets on the 2 selections.

Dreamboat Annie 10/1 3rd
Avon Green 25/1 5th
