With the weather playing havoc Nick Shiambouros heads to Southwell with two selections...
"His best effort came when finishing fifth to the smart Rose Of Kildare in a Hamilton maiden last spring"
Luscifer to win again
17:30 Southwell - Luscifer
Luscifer should go very close in this handicap.
This gelding put in a much improved effort when beating Casaruan over this course last Friday. He took the lead well over a furlong from home, and pulled clear to win with complete authority. I think he has more to offer, and is reasonably priced at 2.6213/8.
Paul Cole sends out Dark Phoenix, who was a game winner versus similar at Wolverhampton earlier this month. This is his first start on the surface and could be a factor. At present he is trading at 10.09/1 on the exchange.
19:30 Southwell - Stormy Bay
Stormy Bay could run well at a big price in this Classified Stakes.
This lightly gelding has been off the course since last July and makes his Fibresand debut in this contest. He has some fair form in the book, which reads well in the context of this race. His best effort came when finishing fifth to the smart Rose Of Kildare in a Hamilton maiden last spring. This is a wide open event, but could pop-up at a price. At present he is trading at 11.521/2 on the exchange.
Sea Willow is the current favourite at 5.79/2. She finished a respectable fourth to Eglish at Wolverhampton last month, and could have some improvement in her.
