SOUTHWELL – Racing League
It may be worth sticking with the gelded son of Oasis Dream, Haunted Dream, who is capable of winning a contest of this type off a mark of 90.
Ed Dunlop’s gelding is 1lbs higher for his second-placed finish behind Wootton’Sun last week at Windsor and will need to reverse form with the Richard Fahey-trained gelding here.
His last win came on an all-weather surface at Lingfield earlier in the season when 9lbs lower. He has been unlucky on a number of occasions since, with things not quite going his way during races. If able to gain a favourable position in the race he should be competitive in the closing stages, and often stays on strongly.

Ian Williams’ Animal Instinct is the outsider of the field in the fourth race on the card. He was gelded in January and has only appeared on turf since, disappointing on a number of occasions and dropping to a rating of 72.
He runs off a mark of 83 on the all-weather, however, with all three wins of his career coming on the surface. The five-year-old gelding is an imposing type, impressive in his appearance and well-built.
He will likely catch the eye in the paddock but will need to show considerably more ability on the track to be competitive in this contest. At the prices he may represent some value if he is able to improve now back on the all-weather.
7:15pm Southwell – Animal Instinct 0.5pt E/W @ 14-1 4 places (most firms)
