Up a bit, down a bit

Well last weeks edition highlighted two runners from the race won by Sleepy Blue Ocean and they were Bookiesindex Boy and Where's Reiley and low and behold they finished 1st and 2nd at Southwell today in another 5f handicap with the exacta paying £59.41.

This week we start at Southwell on 3rd February where the 4yo Shawkantango won the Class 6 5f Handicap by 1 3/4 lengths from Cheveyo as a result he went up 6lb to 58. He's now 2-2 at the track and only having had 10 runs to date he looks open to further improvement on this surface. He is related to Catmint who won a Class 4 off 81 over 5f in her 10 race career a few years ago. He came on for his first run back here after a break and whose to say he wont do so again and he should be followed next time.

At Wolverhampton on 4th February Brave Prospector won the Class 4 Conditions Stakes over 6f by 2 1/4 lengths from Piscean who is no slouch and although there were only 6 runners it was a taking win by him and he is well capable of following up in a similar type of event.

Well thats it for this week and I'm off to Wolverhampton tomorrow night to make sure Gracelightening doesnt disgrace herself in the 7.40 after her previous stalls problems.
