Lay Jebel Tara @ 3.259/4 Southwell 13:50

Back Midaz @ 5.24/1 Southwell 14:20

Back The Lock Master @ 4.77/2 Southwell 16:20


In the 13:50 at Southwell the market principle Jebel Tara has been performing negatively on the exchanges this morning. Trading as low as 2.68/5 it has drifted to a high of 3.259/4. This in-form eight-year-old veteran may have a wealth of experience but he isn't a proven winner with only four wins in 40 starts. Although two of those wins were clocked in his two most recent starts, today he shoulders a 6lbs penalty and is drawn in stall 13. A third race in three weeks may be asking a little too much and confidence has waned considerably.

In the 14:20 Maiden Stakes at Southwell the 3-yo Midaz, trained by Hughie Morrison has been backed from 6.611/2 in to 5.24/1. This is only his second start and he finished in front of a subsequent winner on his debut. He's running a shorter trip today which connections clearly think will suit and he's up against a very modest field where experience is unlikely to count.

Continuing at Southwell and the 16:20 where there has been a considerable confidence in The Lock Master whose price has shortened from 6.611/2 in to 4.77/2. After a couple of sub-standard performances on turf this gelding is being returned to his favoured fibre sand at a track where he performs well at as well as a race he won last year. He's also on the same mark than a year ago. Trainer Michael Appleby has a good record at Southwell and connections will clearly fancy their chances with this six-year-old gelding this afternoon.
