Southwell looks a tricky card today. One horse that is worth a second glance is Elegantly Bound.
This horse has been desperately unlucky to have not shaken off his maiden tag on his last 2 runs at this course he has hit sub 1.1 on both runs. This is very close to making this horse a double winner with no penalties. On his last run in particular he did nothing wrong and kicked for home in the straight only to be caught by the eventual winner Kencumin, the pair were over 4 lengths clear of the 3rd placed horse.
The massive fly in the ointment from an investment point of view is Native Prospect.
We just do not know how this horse will perform here today. Only an insider will know if he will go on Fibresand. I am willing to think that if the selection runs to his level, he can crack this horse on fitness.
Elegantly Bound looks sure today to run his race he should be race fit and this is a win bet here.
Unzing has to beat the previous course winner here Lightening Rod, my rating's maybe over punish older horses, we will see and going forward I may have to re-evalute this deduction. I vey much respect L.R and I also really like Brian Hughes, he is a top class Jockey.
Unzing was sent off favourite @ Market Rasen on his last outing and run well, he certainly ran well enough to serve it up here. On the ratings he is the horse to beat and I will back this horse today for a win. I will also team him up with Elegantly Bound in an Each way double.
