Peach of a bet in the Southwell Lucky Last

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Peachy Carnehan 8.30 @ 12/1

Raddon Top 3.15 @ 5/1

Kellahen 1.15 @ 9/4

Selected Donny – with heavy rain forecast , going likely to turn soft


12.45 After two good runs this season it should be third time lucky for Issuing Authority , who brings the best form to the table and proven at the trip and ground , but is 1/2.

No Bet

1.15 Despite the big field this looks a match between the two ;penalised runners in Ballyglass and Kellahen , both fine on soft ground . They are quite hard to split but the tip ran very well in a handicap last time which confirms his rating and the regular jockey’s 5 pound claim will make a big difference .

1/2pt win Kellahen @ 9/4

2.25 A chance can be given to most of these but despite a hefty 6 pound hit , I’m sticking with Court At Slip, who I was with last time at long odds when winning on soft ground at Wetherby and this longer trip should suit well .

1/4pt win Court At Slip @ 4/1

Selected Exeter – heavy ground on  this undulating , stiff and galloping track

With the ground being heavy on a very stiff track, winner finding will be more difficult than ever , just the one , tentative play .

3.15 The ultra consistent Raddon Top runs this track ever so well , 3 wins and 2 places from 6 starts and despite now being on a stiff enough mark will again run his race as he did last time out , it coming over C&D on heavy ground when a creditable 3 lengths 3rd .

1/4pt win Raddon Top @ 5/1

Selected Southwell – all weather – tapeta


6.00 For once , a very competitive Classified event with a stack of in form runners . Sicario is making his faithful his first syllable as he’s blown a stack of golden opportunities . but as usual won’t be far away . Miss Sligo has a good chance at the weights and this C&D is one of the strong contenders . The long standing maiden Raffles Rebel ran well in his recent first try at this trip at Wolver and as King Athelstan was only a short head behind , both warrant consideration . Tip gets the nod as he’s unexposed at the trip .

1/4pt  ew Raffles Rebel @ 8/1

6.30 The short priced fav is recent Kempton winner Albion Princess , only a pound higher tonight , but unproven on the surface . One of these is surely going to drop the luckless Wadacre Grace as she comes here on the back of three successive 2nds , but even the one pound hit makes it tougher . Cappoquin is arguably still unexposed and the drop in trip could be the answer .

1/4pt win Cappoquin @ 8/1

7.00 a much improved run by Spirit of Nguru last time at Wolver at this trip and a certain contender off just a pound higher . Tothenines is rarely far away , effective over C&D and drops to his last winning mark .

1/4pt  ew Tothenines @ 9/1

8.00 Bird For Life is thriving presently , 3 wins in her last 5 and did little wrong last time out when narrowly beaten by Zuckenburg over C&D , and on revised terms won’t be much between them again, but with a strong pace very likely , the race will be run to suit the late playing tip .

1/2pt  ew Bird For Life @ 7/1

8.30 A very open finale but the consistent Peachey Carnehan is holding his form very well and comes out best at the weights over Bomb Squad and Astrophysics , when he was a close 3rd behind these last time at Wolver . Unlikely to be far away.

1/2pt  ew Peachey Carnehan @ 12/1
