Best bets for the horse racing at Southwell Wednesday 3rd April 2019
I mention it often but it should always be remembered the left-handed Southwell is the only course in the UK which still uses Fibresand. The surface favours prominent horses as it is very difficult to accelerate and make up ground, added to the fact that there is significant kickback if you are behind other horses; it is also a good stamina test.
There are two horses out in the sprints that start the card that have shown all the attributes you require recently and they have to be taken seriously. I have jumped on early doors Tuesday evening bpg.
In the 5f Betway Sprint Handicap at 2.20 Honey GG arrives off the back of a career-best victory over C&D 7 days ago beating the re-opposing Red Stripes by 1½ lengths. The 4yo filly is clearly in fine fettle, two wins and two seconds from four runs over track and trip, and can go in again under her 5 lb penalty. I have the 15-8.
In the second the 6f Betway Official Grand National Betting Partner Handicap at 2.55 Marble Bar is the pick. The gelding clearly likes the surface, winning twice from two runs in March with the form of both races looking fair. The Iain Jardine trained 4yo is another with a 5lb penalty to shoulder but that looks unlikely to prevent him from completing a hat-trick. I have 10-11.At the prices, you may want to go with a double.
