"He has more to do today, but comes in to this race in great heart"

Back Star Ascending in the 14:20 at Southwell


14:20 Southwell - Star Ascending

Star Ascending can defy a penalty in this middle distance handicap.

Last time out over this course he beat Clayton Hall in great style. He swept to the front well over a furlong from home and pulled clear to win with complete authority. He has more to do today, but comes in to this race in great heart. At present he is trading at [3.6] on the exchange which is more than fair.

Ingleby Spring beat the selection in December, but disappointed on his latest start. If he can bounce back to his best he will be a danger to all. At present he is trading at [8.6] on the exchange.


16:30 Southwell - Light Laughter

Light Laughter should prove difficult to beat in this novice stakes.

This well related filly was an inexpensive purchase at the sales last November, after failing to make the cut for Moyglare Stud. She ran respectably when making her UK debut behind Natalie Express at Lingfield last month. She delivered a strong challenge a furlong from home, but failed to quicken when the chips were down. I think she has some improvement left, and is reasonably priced at [2.58] on the exchange.

Volatile is the obvious danger. He made all to win a similar event at Chelmsford last month, and will likely employ similar tactics. Hopefully the selection will have him in her sights and swoop late. At present he is trading at [2.46] on the exchange.
