"He is proven on this surface after winning over C&D in December, and looks to hold an excellent chance of landing the hat-trick."

Boolass - Southwell 13:10

The lightly-raced Boolasshttp://btfr.co/122651381 is building up a progressive profile at this track so far this winter, and is taken to land the hat-trick after her career-best effort over six furlongs last time out. She now has a further 6-lb rise in the weights to deal with, but with the distance expected to be no barrier (ran well over C&D on handicap debut in November) she should take all the beating under useful 5-lb claimer Callum Shepherd, with further improvement a possibility after just two prior starts in handicaps. Speightowns Kid is in good form and is hard to discount, but he has never won from a mark this high, and may find it difficult to land the hat-trick himself.

Thello - Southwell 13:45

Although the race that Thello won at Chelmsford last time seemed a weak affair at the time, the form has been boosted since, with the second and third horses both acquitting themselves well in subsequent starts, and after just three starts in handicaps, he could yet have more to offer, despite a 5-lb rise in the weights. He is proven on this surface after winning over C&D in December, and looks to hold an excellent chance of landing the hat-trick. Thello's biggest danger could be Excelling Oscar, but he is easy to take on after his flop over C&D last time.

Discoverie - Ayr 16:15

Plenty of these are arriving here struggling for form and it could be worth chancing Discoverie, who has made a good start to life for Kenneth Slack, having finished second on both of his starts for the yard. There was no shame in going down to an unexposed sort last time at Catterick, which represented his best effort for some time, and there is hope that he can get back to winning ways in this modest race. Any money for Irish raider Suzy's Music would be significant and she could prove the biggest danger to the selection.
