Best bets for the horse racing Wednesday 27th February 2019

They race on the Fibresand at Southwell on Wednesday afternoon. I have said it before and I will say it again, you must remember the course favours prominent horses as it is very difficult to make up ground on the surface. With that in mind, I think I have one worth an investment.

They get underway at 2.30 with the 5f Betway Casino Handicap. Gorgeous General has been thriving of late including three wins here, two over C&D. This would require a career-best from the four-year-old chestnut but he is perfectly drawn to get a pitch up the pointed end from the off and clearly gets on well with 7lb claimer William Carver. He is short but looks a solid bet and I have a bit of the 11-8 overnight.

Be lucky
