Ben Linfoot is back in the Sporting Life Daily Nap hotseat on Thursday and he fancies an Andrew Balding-trained horse to return to top form at Southwell.
Sporting Life Daily Nap, January 24
SEASEARCH looks a bet in the opening Play 4 To Score At Betway Handicap at Southwell on Thursday.
The four-year-old loves Southwell and looks well-handicapped on his fibresand form after dropping 5lb in two runs this season.
His recent form isn’t much of a concern, though, when you consider he ran two below-par races at the start of 2018 before dropping 5lb and then hacking up at Southwell by 23 lengths.
That was off a lowly mark of 49, but he was only beaten a neck on his next and only subsequent start at Southwell and that was off a rating of 63.
Off 58 on Thursday he looks well treated, especially when taking into account his last run at Newcastle was his first go over two miles.
We know the 1m4f at Southwell plays to his strengths and the form of his trainer (Andrew Balding - five wins from 16 at 31 per cent for the last two weeks) and jockey (Joshua Bryan - three from seven at 43 per cent) only adds confidence to the selection.
