On Thursday we have three claiming stakes races ,with two on the fibresand at Southwell and the other claimer on the poly track at Kempton .Going concentrate on 7 furlong claiming stakes at Southwell at 3.20 .
SOUTHWELL 3.20 7 FURLONG CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 :
12 runners go to post for 7 furlong claimer on fibresand at Southwell ,this looks very competitive claimer with 7 course and distance winners in the field.The three strongest contenders look to be Alpha Tauri,Masai Moon & Imprimis Tagula
ALPHA TAURI : Inconsistent sort ,though has good record here at Southwell with all four career wins coming over this C/D .Not shown great deal on recent starts on the turf ,though will be suited returning to the fibresand at Southwell .
MASAI MOON : Dual course winner here at Southwell ,Including winning class 4 handicap at Southwell in April by 4 lenghs off mark 79 .Hasn't shown much on his last three starts on poly track in handicap company,though will be suited dropping into class 6 company for the first time .
IMPRIMIS TAGULA : Course specialist with 10 wins here at Southwell ,including winning twice over C/D this year .Returning from a 6 month break ,though should go well if fully fit .
VERDICT :This looks a tricky claimer with plenty of course winners .Course specialist Imprimis Tagula has to be respected here with such good record in this grade ,though may need this run having been off the course for 6 months .
Alpha Tauri also looks possible danger at these weights ,having shown all his best form over this course and distance .Not the most consistent of runners ,though has to be respected in this grade .
In wide open claimer MASAI MOON is just preferred ,with this drop in class sure to suit having already won twice this year in better company ,including winning class 4 handicap off mark 79 at this track .Odds around 10-3 look fair value .
