Southwell: Al Ameen

Broke slowly on racecourse debut five days ago but clocked second fastest closing sectional in what appeared above average novice race. Will improve for the experience and plenty of upside.

Over a sharp 5f, Al Ameen will need to break quicker than he did at Wolverhampton five days ago but there are reasons for optimism. That was his racecourse debut and we can forgive greenness given his upside.

As the race developed Al Ameen started to get the hang of things and his closing sectional was the second fastest of the race. The first two home look above average for the type of grade and a debut of speed rating of 59 is fair.

This isn’t the deepest of races and there was enough promise to keep the Boughey horse on-side.
