Southwell: Puchita

Course and distance winner in October but struggled up in grade since. Back into class 6 handicaps and in this grade, her record over 6f at Southwell is 2111131.

Dirchill ran a nice race over course and distance on Sunday; he set an overly strong pace and was beaten by a deep closer but the time was good. My worry is this is a fractionally better race and again he might find the petrol tank emptying before the finish.

The horse who can benefit is Puchita. She is only 2lbs higher than winning over course and distance in October and crucially drops down in grade for the first time since that win. Her 6f record at Southwell in class 6 handicaps is 2111131 and she shouldn’t be the outsider of six.
