Southwell Tips: Hold On Magnolia
Finished third in slower second division of Southwell sprint but time misleading as early pace was steady.
There are limited betting opportunities on Southwell’s card but if forced to bet I’d got with Hold On Magnolia in the 3.05.
Last time he finished third over course and distance and although the time was 0.25s slower than the first division this is misleading because the pace was much more sedate. They covered the first 3f, 0.8s slower before upping the pace turning for home; the fact they got so close to division one’s time is to their credit.
Hold On Magnolia finished third in a blanket finish but he’s hit some form of late and although this is tougher, he’s underrated by the market.
