Thursday's claiming analysis !!!

Two flat cards on Thursday with the first claiming race of the week.Another small field with just 6 runners for 5 furlong classified claimer for apprentices on the fibresand at Southwell.

Six runners for 5 furlong apprentice claimer .On paper this looks between the two in form course winners Soopacal  & Upper Lambourn .

Soopacal : Consistent sort in this grade, finished second on his last two starts over 6 furlongs here for Michael Herrington .Runs for first time for Brian Ellison after being claimed for £5,000 after finishing fair second behind Global Village in claimer last time at Southwell .

Upper Lambourn : Lightly raced 4-Y-0 only had the six starts winning twice here at Southwell .Won 6 furlong handicap last time at Southwell coming from off the pace to  beat Mazovian by 1 lengh .

VERDICT : Not great deal to choose between Soopacal & Upper Lambourn at these weights ,though preference is for SOOPACAL who will be suited by this drop back to 5 furlongs having won three times over the distance including winning similar race over C&D around this time last year .

UPPER LAMBOURN looks the obvious danger though drop back to 5 furlongs may not suit ,having looked to need every yard of the 6 furlong trip last time at Southwell .

Not betting race for me SOOPACAL looks the most likeliest winner ,though odds around 13-8 don't  make great appeal.
