10/1

Moody since winning back-to-back races on the AW during the spring of 2019; is steadily easing in the weights but it's difficult to imagine that the tide is about to turn in his favour.

Back on the scoresheet at Wolverhampton (5f) last week (Autumn Splendour third, Eesha Says fifth and Filbert Street sixth); is versatile in terms of synthetic racing surfaces; should go well despite the incurred 5lb penalty.

Maiden (0-11); valid excuses (rider dropped whip, hampered on the inner) when threatening to change that status on a couple of recent occasions at this track; Rab Havlin is a positive jockey booking.

Ended 2019 in a fine spell of form when justifying favouritism on the Polytrack at Chelmsford (5f); very awkward at the start when under-performing in a fast run race at Newcastle (5f) last week; holds realistic claims despite a rising mark.

Ageing Bahamian Bounty gelding who has seemingly lost the verve for racing; problematic beforehand (and during the race) on return from 15 months off at Lingfield (6f) on New Year's Eve; unconsidered on second start for Emma Owen.

Won five times during the course of 2019, including from a similar mark over C&D in May (beat Skyva by 2½L); hasn't finished a million miles off the principals on his last couple of C&D starts (fourth); is being kept busy.

4lb higher than when winning a Class 6 C&D handicap for Mick Appleby in late October; 0-3 for Roy Brotherton since; has work to do with the likes of Loulin and Fareeq on the basis of that evidence.

Both career wins came as a juvenile at Yarmouth (6f) for previous handler James Tate; has eased 40lb in the weights since October 2018; slowly away when a plugging on 1¾L third to Fareeq at Wolverhampton (5f) last week.

Seven-race maiden who is yet to hit the frame; her best effort came when a never able to challenge fifth in a Class 7 C&D handicap (November 2019); blinkers are now added.

Seven-race maiden; has shown minor improvement since finishing 2½L fourth (100-1) to Filbert Street over C&D three starts back; bustled up the 1-12f Xian Express in a porous three-runner novice here on New Year's Day.

22-race maiden; has shown very little in the way of positive form since finishing runner-up at Wolverhampton (5f) in April 2019; far safer to seek an alternative selection.

Betting

Forecast

Loulin (5/2), Red Stripes (7/2), Eesha Says (5/1), Filbert Street (11/2), Hey Ho Let's Go (6/1), Fareeq (7/1), Red Invader (10/1), Final Legacy (12/1), Autumn Splendour (16/1), Bahamian Heights (33/1), Maerchengarten (50/1), Wye Bother (50/1)

Verdict

Fareeq had the measure of three of these rivals when scoring at Wolverhampton (5f) last week, so will no doubt be a popular choice amongst the punters despite an incurred 5lb penalty. However, returning to Southwell there's a possibility that Eesha Says (fifth) can make Fareeq work harder to confirm that form. Loulin is rising in the weights and did himself no favours with a very awkward start in a fast run race at Newcastle last week. Therefore, with the added guile and experience of Rab Havlin in the saddle (and valid excuses for a couple of recent C&D defeats) a chance is taken that today will be 12th-time lucky for Mark Hoad's HEY HO LET'S GO.
  1. Hey Ho Let's Go
