Southwell: Digital

Record over the minimum trip is 22212312 and this strong travelling type looks tailor made for Southwell's sharp 5f. Ran well on his reappearance over 6f and should be ready to strike.

Digital ran a really nice race on his reappearance from a 138 day break. Racing over 6f, he was still cantering with a couple of furlongs to go. The mad spring for the line didn’t quite work out and the fact he was fresh/keen early in his race probably didn’t help; nor did the sixth furlong.

Despite the defeat, it’s clear his running style in ideally suited to Southwell in particular the straight 5f track where it helps to be a strong traveller. There is every chance Digital comes on for the run and his record at the minimum trip reads: 22212312. In receipt of weight from his main rivals, his biggest problem might be the draw.
