Southwell 17:10 Royal Sands
Can get us off to a flyer under the floodlights at Southwell on Saturday, with the James Given team in fantastic form at the moment, posting a winner and a second yesterday. The selection is dropping back from six furlongs to the minimum trip here, but that should prove no problem whatsoever as he has the required speed to adapt over the flying five.
The track has been notably quick recently and that will suit as well.
Southwell 18:10 Bodacious Name
Has only had four tries on the all-weather with just one of those coming on this track. He wasn’t disgraced on that occasion when upped in class and certainly not given a hard time when his winning chance had disappeared.
He rate an each-way play at double-digit odds having dropped to a very attractive mark of just 66.

Southwell 18:40 Ower Fly
Finds himself on a mark 28lb lower than his peak rating a couple of years back and gets a massive jockey switch to James Sullivan. The Ruth Carr yard had a winner here on Thursday and his pedigree suggests he could thrive around here.
It would be no surprise to see this lad rack up a few wins throughout the winter starting here and he may well become a regular at this venue.
Southwell 20:10 Ginger Max
Looks to have found himself a good opportunity to get on the scoresheet in this 7f handicap.
Having had the three qualifying runs, he seemingly has been gifted an opening mark of 58, he was woefully outpaced when fifth to Hareem Queen at this venue last month. She bolted in again last Thursday off a mark of 78 nearly breaking the track record!
Stepping up in trip will enable him to travel better over the long sprint distance and he can be another winner for the very solid, trainer jockey combination of Richard Fahey and Tony Hamilton.
