Southwell Tips: State Residence
Couldn’t get involved in a steadily run race when forced to race in rear from wide draw. Has run well on Fibresand before.
Features: A left handed galloping all-weather track. It is the only fibresand track in the country and rides much deeper than the polytracks of Lingfield and Kempton. There is a straight five furlong chute.
Draw Bias: Moderate – The centre of the track is the best place to be drawn.
Pace Bias: Strong – Prominent runners are advantaged.
Top Trainers: Michael Appleby has 85 wins from 415 runners, a 20% strike rate and £7.12 level stakes profit over the last five seasons.
Top Jockeys: Hayley Turner enjoys a 19% strike rate, with 39 wins from 207 rides, registering £18.83 profit.
Racecourse: National Hunt
Features: A small left handed, sharp track. The fences are of average difficulty.
