Steve Hughes has a best bet for Southwell on Tuesday
Hopefully Monday’s full programme of racing was not a false dawn as we are back to a single All Weather meeting on Tuesday. I have one best bet.
Southwell 4.20: Chaucers Tale
Very consistent at a lowly level this winter, Chaucers Tale has shown he can handle Southwell’s Fibresand and looks a solid each-way bet.
Having only raced four times before this winter, Chaucers Tale has been busy of late and has made the first three in all six starts. That includes a win at Newcastle in November where he made most of the running, a tactic that works well on this deep surface.
He has been second on both trips to the track as well, so will have no problems with the Fibresand. He stayed the mile well enough here in January and finished so well over 7f at Wolverhampton last time that he surely needs this 8f trip now.
0.75pts each-way – Chaucers Tale – 4.20 Southwell – 6/1 Ladbrokes
