18:50 Southwell

Tadleel has run well the last twice and only missed by a head last time. If he runs to that sort of level again he will go close but he hasn’t been the most consistent in the past and is short enough here. I think there is value in opposing and MOHAREB (best price 11/4) looks the one to side with. Mick Appleby’s 6yo clocked a career best sweeping past the field late to win over 6f here last time and given the way he won that the step back up to 7f should suit. He has a 5lb penalty but this looks a good opportunity with seemingly just the one horse to beat. Eagleway has run well the last twice bumping into Masked Identity and then Animal Instinct last time. He is clearly talented but doesn’t always put it all in and might be left vulnerable. On A Session has a terrible strike rate and needs to show more. This definitely lacks any real strength in depth so it looks between the top pair.
