2.25 Southwell: Class 4 Handicap, 5f
Competitive race over the minimum trip on the fibresand. I do fancy the chance of eight-year old veteran Brother Tiger.
A 5f furlong specialist, who’s shown his best at Lingfield in the past. He’s been seen only once at Southwell before, back in 2016, when placed over this very same trip.
Back from a break after two below-par efforts ended an until then busy season, potentially he needed it as 2017 was in fact his busiest campaign ever, which in general was a decent one including a Lingfild 5f win in May.
Brother Tiger is down to this last winning mark now and if fit after his break, could play a pivotal role from the perfect draw. The golden highway, those low numbers, and even more the 1 draw, can often be a significant advantage here.
10pts win – Brother Tiger @ 15/2 Bet365
