Southwell top tip: Reformed Character ready to land overdue maiden success

Southwell’s Planet Sport Bet-sponsored meeting signs off with a competitive one-mile handicap that should give race-goers a thrilling climax to their Friday night entertainment.

20:30 Southwell: Liz and izzy’s HOAP Podcast Handicap (1 mile)

It’s not surprising to see Specialist View and Van Zant jostling for the favourite tag after both produced decent results recently, with the latter particularly catching the eye with three incrementally improving course-distance performances in the space of 12 days last month, culminating in a win here 17 days ago.

That said, their short prices fail to offer much appeal compared with a couple of more attractive prospects further down the betting, where Wee Geordie could be ready to outrun his double-digit price in the capable hands of Rossa Ryan.

Our final seal of approval, however, goes to Martin Dunne’s  eight-year-old gelding Reformed Character, who is long overdue his maiden success after 21 attempts on the Flat.

Suggested best bet: Reformed Character each-way in the 20:30 at Southwell

There have been plenty of near misses along the way for Reformed Character, who was barely a couple of lengths off the pace in each of his last two outings at Lingfield (third of 11 in February) and Wolverhampton, where he finished fourth of 11 last time out a month ago.

Useful claimer Grace McEntee keeps the ride and her invaluable three-pound allowance effectively brings them down to bottom weight to make them no forlorn hope of making the frame in this low-key affair.
