Flintara won by 11L yesterday for a 9.58 win
Alan Dudman is playing two runners each-way in Thursday's multiple
Kodebreaker overpriced from wide draw
Back Kodebreaker EW @ 11/1 in the 15:35 at Southwell
Flintara bolted up by 11L for another single winner yesterday for the column, and a nice drift with the Fontwell scorer hitting a BSP of 9.58. It's four single winners in four days, so hopefully a winning multiple is not too far away.
I am sticking with the All-Weather today as lots of rain and changing ground conditions make life too tricky.
Kodebreaker is certainly one that stands out as a bit of an each-way price for the Southwell 15:35 over 1m, although the draw in 14 is a slight problem out wide.
However, from 16s into 12s, the berth is factored in with the price and this is also an Extra Place Special on the Sportsbook.
The selection finished third over Southwell's 7f last time in a slightly better race, and runs off the same mark today from 56.
He has no issues going up to 1m, as he finished placed over CD back in December in a similar grade and from virtually the same mark.
His trainer Michael Herrington has been cleaning up of late of with the Southwell win machine that is Dubai Jeanius, and Herrington is 4-13 at 31%. He also is 6-27 in the last month.
With Aidan Keeley booked to claim some weight, I'll take the hit on the wide draw and play each-way.
Dougies will be sharper for recent return
Back Dougies Dream EW @ 11/1 in the 18:45 at Newcastle
We'll play the each-way angle again for one of the Newcastle races this evening and Nigel Tinkler's Dougies Dream is an unexposed type on the AW who should improve from an underwhelming effort last time.
He was beaten 10L off 65 over CD on his latest start, but that came off a break and he should be a lot sharper for this.
His form from last year included a successful CD win in good style coming near side from off the pace, and he also scored at Redcar.
The mile is his best trip, and after a very busy 2022 and a break, he can hopefully hit a place, while Faye McManoman knows the horse inside out.
Newcastle's surface and finish seems to suit him, and he ran very well over CD back in October in a better race.
