Bets Of The Day: Amidon to record first victory at Southwell

Today's best bet Amidon runs at Southwell
Today's best bet Amidon runs at Southwell

Nick Shiambouros is back with a strong fancy at Southwell and a big priced selection at Lingfield...


"Stamina will not be an issue for this gelded son of Dom Alco and his current price of 3.55/2 is more than fair"

Back Amidon at 3.55/2 in the 13:30 at Southwell

11:40 Lingfield - Strictly Carter

Strictly Carter could run well at a decent price in this competitive nursery.

His latest run at HQ in a valuable sales race is best forgotten. He was never in the hunt behind the talented Poet's Prize.

He is best judged on his second place behind Shadow Game in a maiden at HQ in August. I think he will appreciate the return to handicap company, and is well worth an interest at 10.09/1 on the exchange.

Men United could be the main danger. This Acclamation colt put in a much improved effort last time out when finishing fourth to Harmonic Wave at Musselburgh. He ran on pretty well inside the final furlong and was not beaten all that far.


13:30 Southwell - Amidon

Amidon should go very close in this interesting long distance novices' hurdle.

This gelding finished down the field behind Masterplan at Ascot. He appeared to run out of steam four flights from home and finished well beaten. I think he may have needed the race and this run is best forgotten.

He had previously finished an excellent third to Roll On Ruby at Cheltenham, which reads very well in the context of this race.

Stamina will not be an issue for this gelded son of Dom Alco and his current price of 3.55/2 is more than fair.

Mustmeetalady is the favourite at 2.767/4. He ran well on his seasonal reappearance when finishing fourth to One For Harry. He is the main danger to the selection, but may struggle to give him 7lbs.
