Looks like we are in for another long spell of snow and freezing temperatures, which is sure to affect the racing over Christmas period with plenty meetings being called off again.Looking out the office window the snow has already started here in the East of England ,looks like we are in for one long winter.
Friday we have two flat cards at Southwell & Wolverhampton both cards look very low on quality ,though there does look quite interesting 6 furlong claiming stakes at Southwell.
6F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 SOUTHWELL 12.05
ABBONDANZA : Great record in claimers this year winning 6 times ,back to form last time winning 6 furlong claimer at Wolverhampton beating Stablemate Spin Again by easy 3 lenghs ,has to prove himself on fibresand,only ran on this surface once finishing slightly disappointing 5TH , though trainer Dandy Nicholls has excellent record at the track ,will go close if handling the surface.
VERDICT : ABBONDANZA & EBRAAM both stand out here with excellent records in claimers.EBRAAM won his last two races in claiming company at Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,though has never won on fibresand, his trainer Ron Harris is not in the best form 1 winner from 29 in December.At the prices ABBONDANZA looks the better value bet with the stable in great form.
