3.40 SOUTHWELL 1 MILE 0-70 CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES
8 runners declared for 1 mile claimer on the fibresand at Southwell .The three main contenders look to be Caledonia Prince , Bold Mark & Electrician .
CALEDONIA PRINCE : All three wins over course & distance at Southwell ,been running consistently on poly track recently ,finishing placed on last two starts in handicap company .Faces no easy task off top weight ,though will be suited returning to fibresand .
BOLD MARK :Dual course & distance winner at Southwell ,the last win coming in seller back in November .Not shown great deal in three selling races on poly track recently,though will be suited returning to fibresand and looks well treated off bottom weight .
ELECTRICIAN : Had shown some decent form for John Gosden in 2011 ,though completely lost his way, till winning 10 furlong seller at Lingfield in January .Finished fair second in 1 mile seller at Lingfield last time .Should be thereabouts if handling the fibresand ,though this looks stronger race.
VERDICT: This looks very competitive classified claimer with plenty course specialists .Favourite Caledonia Prince has been in fair form recently and should go well returning to Southwell ,though faces no easy task at these weights .10-3 doesn't look great value in wide open race.
BOLD MARC will need to bounce back after couple disappointing efforts on poly track ,though his last two wins came over this course and distance and looks well treated off 8 stone 4LB .Hayley Turner riding for first time also looks interesting jockey booking .Odds around 5-1 look fair each-way value .
Of the others Electrician & Fluctuation both have possible chances ,though Electrician has to prove he can handle the fibresand & Fluctuation will need bounce back after running poorly on his last five starts .
