Timeform pick out their three best bets from Southwell on Tuesday…
“…he has leading claims off the same mark.”
Timeform on Tan
Black Salt was impressive when winning on his first start on the fibresand at Southwell last month, doing so from a high draw on the day, and he remains in form based on his subsequent effort to finish third at Wolverhampton off this mark. He can win at Southwell again ahead of the thriving Angel Palanas, who is the obvious danger. Manshood scored at Newcastle last time and would be a threat if converting that onto the fibresand.
Tan hasn’t won for eight starts now but his last visit to Southwell was a productive one, winning here in May. He gave the impression that there are races to be won with him when finishing second at Chelmsford last time and he has leading claims off the same mark. Bellevarde and Warrior’s Valley have both taken to the surface in the past and merit consideration also.
Melgate Magic failed to justify strong support in the market when only fifth at Wolverhampton 3 weeks ago, but he shaped as if he was still in form that day, just stretched by the furlong longer trip, and the drop back to six furlongs should suit. He’ll be tough to beat in this ordinary contest, and can lead Cognac Blue home.
