Southwell: The Bell Conductor

Lightly raced front-runner who has impressed on numerous occasions but unable to string together a consistent run of form. First start for Paul Midgley and ability is there to be unlocked.

Having enjoyed a good start at Southwell with Giogiobbo winning at a big price i’m loathe to give back any money quickly but i’ve always though The Bell Conductor had potential as a sprinter.

His 2-year-old season was impressive he won here on the Fibresand and was only beaten 5.25 lengths by Art Power. He’s been boom or bust since then and this is only his 11th start which points towards some fragility.

His front-running style was suited to the Fibresand and i’m not sure if the Tapeta , when riding slow, plays to his strengths but he’s certainly capable of winning off this sort of mark and in this grade. Victory at Beverly in the summer was accompanied by a big speed rating and he’s the type of horse Paul Midgley could do well with.
