David Ord hopes Southwell passes a morning inspection with his best bet for Friday representing the Skelton team there.
Sporting Life Daily Nap, November 15
VERY FIRST TIME is on a long losing streak but is now fully 19lb below his last winning mark and looks ready to regain the winning thread on his third start for the Skelton team in the Watch Sky Sports Racing On Sky415 Handicap Chase at Southwell.
He caught the eye when third at Market Rasen last time, finishing powerfully, and the return to three miles is a significant plus here.
So is the return of Harry Skelton to the saddle and from top weight (with his ceiling rating of 105) in this contest looks the best bet of the day with Sartene’s Son the only obvious danger.
