3.55 SOUTHWELL 6F 3-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6
Six runners declared for 6F claimer at Southwell .This looks quite competitive little 3-Y-0 claimer with .Isheamiracle ,Claretintheblood & Faraway looking the three main contenders.
ISHEAMIRACKLE : Consistent filly on fibresand,Won 5F maiden here at Southwell back in December beating Forever Janey by 6 lenghs .Has also finished second three times at the track up to 1 mile.Ran fair third last over C&D at Southwell off mark 65 .Should go well dropping into claiming company for first time .
CLARETINTHEBLOOD : Won 5F handicap at Southwell in December off mark 54 beating Russian Bullet by 0.50 lengh .Finished fair third last time at Southwell over 5 furlongs behind Laura's Bairn .Has to prove himself over this 6 furlong trip .
FARAWAY : Won three races in 2011 ,including winning 6F claimer at Wolverhampton in December,though has looked disappointing on his last three starts in this grade . Wears first time blinkers.
VERDICT : Claretintheblood has put in two solid runs in handicaps here at Southwell over five furlongs ,though there still remains question mark over this longer trip .Also has bit to find at these weights having second lowest handicap rating.
Faraway would be difficult to beat if reproducing his fourth over C&D off mark 70 in class 5 handicap back in December ,though has looked disappointing on his recent starts .First time blinkers may help ,though there still remains a question mark .
ISHEAMIRACKLE looks more solid than her two main rivals,with fair record here at Southwell in handicap company .Will be suited dropping into claiming company for first time .
Was expecting around 5-2 mark for a bet ,though the 9-4 quickly disappeared early this morning and now best price 13-8 which doesn't make great appeal ,and another no bet race.
