Southwell best bet: Drop in trip can put Pierrefonds in the mix with market leaders

Southwell’s all-weather track serves up a decent card for a Monday, and this handicap could well prove to be one of the most competitive races of the afternoon.

The bookies appear to have this down as a three-horse race, with four-year-old Smart Charger emerging as the early favourite as he lines up fresh from a six-month break for his stable debut for Alan King.

Fellow market leader Steps In The Sand goes to post as the only one of the 13 runners to have a recent win under his belt, having landed a half-length victory over 11 furlongs at this venue a month ago.

He was last seen coming a respectable fourth of 10 at Wolverhampton on Saturday night, so it will be interesting to see whether such a quick two-day turnaround affects his performance positively or negatively.

John Butler’s six-year-old Red Dwarf is also expected to go well under Silvestre De Sousa and build on his three recent frame finishes at monthly intervals, but our final nod goes to the Jack Jones-trained four-year-old Pierrefonds, who is lurking just below the three betting principals at slightly more appealing odds.

Suggested best bet: Pierrefonds each-way in the 15:35 at Southwell

A couple of bumper races in November gave way to a busy winter campaign on all-weather tracks, and his progress has recently begun to show signs of bearing fruit.

Third of 11 in each of his last two appearances, most recently at this venue 17 days ago, he drops a couple of furlongs here, which should put a race of this nature in 0-55 company well within his compass.

The promising gelding is partnered by the ever-dependable Daniel Tudhope, who boasts a 24% strike rate at this venue, so he looks well-equipped to put Pierrefonds at least in the each-way frame here, especially with four places available across the bookmaker board.
