Oddschecker tips for every race at Southwell on Monday.
WHERES MAUD GONE made a satisfactory start to her chasing career when filling the runner-up berth at Market Rasen earlier this month and with further improvement likely, she could be worth chancing. Recent C&D scorer Serjeant Painter demands respect turned out quickly under a 7lb penalty along with Red Maple, who won over this trip at Worcester (hurdles) two starts ago and makes his chase bow for a top yard.Prediction : 1st Wheres Maud Gone 2nd Serjeant Painter 3rd Red Maple
THE VOLLAN was a good second at Hexham earlier this month when attempting to supplement his previous C&D success and he'd have arguably been closer had he not been badly hampered when in a good position. He can make amends off an unchanged mark, possibly at the expense of Ecossais, who has dropped to his last winning rating. The remainder are headed by Zoffalee. Prediction : 1st The Vollan 2nd Ecossais 3rd Zoffalee
HELL RED has taken to fences like a duck to water, winning on each of his two starts. Paul Nicholls' charge can put his experience to good use here and with further improvement likely, he can maintain his unbeaten record in this sphere. Byzantine Empire is preferred to And The New in the race for minor honours, while connections will be hoping recent wind surgery can spark a revival in Restandbethankful. Prediction : 1st Hell Red 2nd Byzantine Empire 3rd And The New
GLAJOU was not disgraced when beaten six lengths off a mark of 111 in a handicap hurdle at Worcester last time and a reproduction of that level of form would give the six-year-old a big chance now eased in grade. Overtougeorge scored off a mark of 78 two starts ago and he is likely to be thereabouts now 3lb higher, while Lake Washington should not be underestimated on his return to action after three years off the track. Prediction : 1st Glajou 2nd Overtougeorge 3rd Lake Washington
In an open event the vote goes to SIMPLY RED, who was an impressive winner at Bangor two starts ago and she was not beaten far off just 1lb lower last time. Madeeh remains unexposed over hurdles and he has to be of some interest on his handicap bow this afternoon. The shortlist is completed by She's A Rocca and Flighty Bride. Prediction : 1st Simply Red 2nd Madeeh 3rd Shes A Rocca
City Flame is the only distance winner in this field after she won at Uttoxeter in May last year, but she hasn't been seen in action since and it looks a big ask to expect her to score after over a year off the track. DO YA FEEL LUCKY showed massively improved form after wind surgery to stroll home over 2m4f at Worcester and if she can repeat that carrying a 7lb penalty, she may well double up despite the increase in trip. Brianna Rose was only beaten a length here earlier in the month and she could go well, but an extra 3lb may hinder her chances of coming home in front.Prediction : 1st Do Ya Feel Lucky 2nd Brianna Rose 3rd City Flame
JACK OF ALL SHAPES surprised with a 25/1 success at Uttoxeter when running on well over 2m4f to score by a head and although he has been put up 3lb for that win, the step up to this trip may well bring about plenty of improvement. You Name Him will also be looking to hunt the down leaders late on, but suffers a 6lb rise in the weights which may stop his hat-trick bid, while Debden Bank returns to hurdles after wind surgery and is well handicapped on the best of his chasing form.Prediction : 1st Jack Of All Shapes 2nd You Name Him 3rd Debden Bank
