We had considered previewing Exeter for today’s daily speed figures, but each race is pretty crowded. Instead, though, we look to Southwell Racecourse on Tuesday 31 March. Ahead of today’s races, the conditions are rated as standard with the weather cloudy and windy.
The first race to jump out at us is the 15:25 Handicap, which will feature eight four-year-olds. From those eight runners, Bond Fastrac has been identified by the Racing Post as the quickest with an 83 rating. Just behind, though, is Foie Gras with an 81 rating. Meanwhile, 11/4 favourite Spowarticus is rated close behind with 79.
Immediately after, we are next looking at the 16:00 Handicap. A total of nine runners have declared for this race open to four-year-olds or older. At present, the clear quickest is outsider Cathedral (20/1) with an 84 rating. That is eight points higher than the 76 of Apollo Eleven (7/1) and Samtu (10/3).
