Southwell Tip: Doc Sportello

Finished second behind National Anthem on his Fibresand debut 10 days ago. Form looks strong and he earned a good speed rating in defeat. Well handicapped and lots of positives.

Doc Sportello is an infrequent visitor to Southwell but ten days ago he finished a neck behind National Anthem on his Fibresand debut. David Brown’s winner is a horse I rate very highly and therefore a close second reads very well.

The time was also good, with Doc Sportello earning an adjusted speed rating of 81 and his closing sectional was actually quicker than that of the winner.

A handicap mark of 79 is very workable and he should run a good race.
