Southwell Placepot: Tuesday March 25

Mark Johnston trains a couple of today's selections.

Southwell is the venue for Tuesday's crack at the Placepot...

"Sir Frank Morgan was workmanlike when scoring at Wolverhampton last week but he left the impression there was plenty more in the tank if required..."

14:20 - It wouldn't be a surprise to see Xclusive bounce back to form in first-time cheekpieces but for the Placepot it's worth banking on Hail Promenader, who ran well when second in a C&D claimer last time and has solid claims if arriving here in similar form.

14:50 - Ridgeway Storm sets the standard on debut for Alan King and From Frost is a fascinating newcomer for Andrew Balding. They're hardly inventive selections but with just two places on offer this could get tricky, so between them the permutation ought to be safe for another leg.

15:25 - C&D winner Dancing Freddy still looks to be on a good mark having shaped well when second to Caramelita last week. It's of note that Adam Kirby takes over in the saddle and he has every chance of going one better.

16:00 - Tarrafal needs to prove that he handles fibresand but he is by some way the most convincing option in this field, and he'll probably only have to run up to the form of his Wolverhampton second earlier this month to get off the mark here.

16:35 - Arr' Kid was an impressive winner on his fibresand debut last month and, though he wasn't in the same form at Wolverhampton last time, he is well worth another chance now returned to this surface. It's also worth taking Royal Alcor, who is fully effective on this surface and may not be handicapped out of things despite 2 lb higher than for his latest win.

17:05 - Sir Frank Morgan was workmanlike when scoring at Wolverhampton last week but he left the impression there was plenty more in the tank if required. He's just the type to keep progressing gradually and should land the hat-trick here.
