10 July 2016 Preview

There is a bumper eight race card to enjoy at Southwell on Sunday for Family Fun Day. In terms of the action on the track, champion trainer Paul Nicholls sends just one runner to the Nottinghamshire venue where he has sent out 4 winners from just 7 runners in the past 5 seasons, and The Outlaw would be an appropriate winner given he is running in Robin Hood’s county. He lines up in the 3.15, just over half an hour after Nicholls’ former assistant Dan Skelton runs Swansea Mile in the Novice Chase, a progressive young horse who ran extremely well on his chasing debut at Worcester recently and will take the world of beating here for local owner Craig Buckingham.

In the HSS Hire Handicap Hurdle at 4.20, the Rosemary Gasson trained Mr McGuiness should go close to making up for a last flight fall at Southwell recently when clear.

Finally in the closing national hunt flat race at 6.00, the bizarrely named Gvs Irportensa should have a leading chance for jockey Gavin Sheehan and trainer Warren Greatrex, a combination who are potent in races such as this, so much so that they have had 29 winners together at a 33% strike rate in national hunt flat races in the last five seasons.

Hopefully the weather stays dry and the big crowd that is expected enjoying a terrific day out!
