1.30 Southwell: Elkstone has fell in two of his last three races and despite that fact he has still traded below at least half his BSP in-running in those races. He’s a strong traveller that makes ground from the rear which sees him trade low in-running. Though he is struggling with his jumping he could well trade low if putting in a clear round; he currently trades around 14.0 for a back-to-lay.
3.25 Down Royal: This small field novice hurdle could play to the strengths of Charlie Stout. He is a strong travelling horse that is usually held-up right out the back and has met his fair share of trouble in-running in big field races around tight Irish tracks. With only four other runners to contend with today he should travel well in behind and be well positioned to challenge in the latter stages of the race; he currently trades around 4.50 for a back-to-lay.
4.00 Lingfield: Doitforthevillage was a course and distance winner here last December and now races off just a 5lb higher mark. The heavy ground should not inconvenience him having gone close at Exeter when only collared late on after demolishing the final fence when clear and possibly idling out in front. He ran a poor race last time out but it’s possible the race came too quick after his previous race; he currently trades around 4.60 for a back-to-lay.31 Jan 2017
