Southwell: Alminoor

Acted on the surface when second over 5f in August. Has plenty of early pace but also the stamina for 7f on Polytrack. It could be that 6f on Fibresand is ideal for this lightly raced individual.

Having won twice in the autumn punters may fear Alminoor is in the grip of the handicapper but a change in trip and surface can show he is still well-handicapped under the right circumstances.

Alminoor has been racing over 7f of late but he has plenty of early pace and won on his only attempt at 6f, on slow turf. He should also like the switch to Fibresand. He proved capable on the surface when second to Blazing Hot from a poor draw, over an inadequate 5f (clocked a good rating.)

He is lightly raced and 6f around Southwell could be ideal; with few opportunities at the track for a horse rated this high connections could have been biding their time.
