Boxing day's bet on Kingswinford was bit disappointing only finishing fifth in 7 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton after being well supported in market 13-2 into 9-2 .
After getting outpaced at half way Kingswinford never really looked like getting back into the race though was only beaten 2 lenghs in the end .Bawaardi given good ride by Ryan Moore just got the better of One Way Or Another in close finish .Loss of £100 on the day .
Moving onto Tuesday's racing just one flat card on fibresand at Southwell ,with very disappointing turn out in 5 furlong claiming stakes with just four runners .
1.15 SOUTHWELL 5F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6
Just four runners for five furlong claimer ,with Desert Icon & Le Toreador looking the main two contenders .
Le Toreador : Won twice this year at Lingfield & Carlisle has decent record on poly track with 4 wins from 12 starts ,though was disappointing on his only start here at Southwell .
Desert Icon : Won three times this year all over 6 furlongs including two claimers.Ran fair third last time over C&D behind Six Wives in handicap .Looks well treated at these weights .
VERDICT :DESERT ICON is very well treated in this claimer 7LB clear on official handicap ratings ,though all four career victory's are over 6 furlongs ,finished fair third last time over C&D ,though would be better suited by an extra furlong.
Le Toreador has some decent form on poly track ,though has to prove he can handle this fibresand surface and faces stiff task trying to concede 23LB to Desert Icon .
Not really betting race for me though DESERT ICON is slightly favoured receiving so much weight from main rival Le Toreador .
NO BET RACE
(1) DESERT ICON (2) LE TOREADOR
