3.30 Southwell – Mosakhar
Mosakhar has been a revelation this winter with two conclusive wins at Southwell. It seems like Ollie Pears has found the key to the four-year-old by developing a love for this surface. Pears often targets runners at Southwell as it’s one of his local tracks and knows the type to do well. The dual course winner will have to carry top weight today but his margin of victories suggest that he probably has more to offer.
Furthermore his sire Dawn Approach has a fair record on the fibresand being 3-3 in 2020. Breeding is normally a statistic to follow at the track as a lot of strong stallions have poor records here. Therefore it is important if you can to look at sire stats Southwell as it can provide a leading edge when it comes to punting.
I think when taking everything into the equation Mosakhar will have too much for his rivals. I’m hoping he can get us off to a winning start.
4.30 Southwell – Arabian King
Arabian King provided trainer James Ferguson with his first win as a trainer last week over the course and distance. The winning distance was a comprehensive four lengths with none of the opposition landing a blow. Before that on his stable debut he managed a respectable second at Lingfield.
Before joining Ferguson, Arabian King has previously been with David Elsworth and shown very little. However since joining his new yard the four-year-old has begun to show definite signs of improvement. It will be interesting to see how Ferguson develops as a trainer and what types of horses he will do well with.
Today he will be carrying a penalty but the style of his victory suggests that he should be strong enough to defy it. Also jockey Luke Morris retains the ride which is a positive. The son of New Approach should be hard to beat and I believe he can deliver James Ferguson another winner.
