Field sizes on All Weather this winter have been very disappointing with the majority races having 6 runners or less ,though hardly surprise with such low prize money levels.Looking through this weeks entries there does look few more horses entered up ,hopefully we will start to get some better sized fields over the final few weeks of the AW season.
On Tuesday just the one flat card at Southwell ,going concentrate on the 5 furlong selling stakes at 2.45
5F SELLING STAKES CLASS 6 SOUTHWELL 2.45
COLORUS: Six time course & distance winner at Southwell ,won 4 times in 2010 including claimer here at Southwell at the end of December beating Soopacal by short head.Could only manage 7TH of 14 last time in competitive class 5 handicap at Southwell though was only beaten 3 lenghs.Takes drop in class here into selling company for only second time in his career ( won easily last time in seller)
VERDICT : On paper this looks competitive selling stakes, though both Lord of Reigns & Rievaulx World have big question marks having both disappointed on fibresand in the past.
Ridley Didley won claimer over course & distance in January, though was well beaten in handicap last time at Southwell finishing over 4 lenghs behind Colorus,though can't be totally dismissed dropping into seller.
Spic n Span has good record here at Southwell with 5 wins over course & distance and has decent record in selling races 3 wins from 6 starts,though has bit to find off these terms.
Course specialist COLORUS has great record at Southwell with six wins over course & distance , looks to have plenty in his favour dropping into selling company.Looks fair value at around 3-1 mark.
