Southwell Racecourse contributed to some highly rewarding outcomes from the UK horse racing results yesterday (Monday 16 March). All races were held on turf where the going was either good or good to firm. More than £85,000 was paid out from the prize pool to winning owners.
Although the third race of the day, the 15:10 is the first that actually yielded a winner with favourable odds. The Jonjo O’Neill-trained Optimistic Bias proved to be a valuable winner at 4/1, coming in ahead of 11/4 favourite That’s My Rabbit. Meanwhile, Get Involved will have been a highly effective each-way winner at 25/1.
A similar outcome came in the very race, which was the 15:40. Pagham Belle won that race at 14/1, making some punters extremely delighted indeed. That horse won ahead of the heavily favoured Mazurati at 10/3, while Monroe Park was third at 33/1.
