Chris Baker: Top tipster has a two point nap at Southwell

Chris Baker has a confident nap at Southwell

The run of consecutive winning NAPs ended yesterday as Eesha Says could only finish fifth at Wolverhampton. Sent off as an easy to back 4/1 favourite, she never looked like landing a blow from a bit further back than ideal. She once again hung left and doesn’t look the easiest of rides.

It’s back to Southwell today for just one bet. I’ve made a strong case for the selection, which has met my criteria for a 2 point bet. Good luck if you decide to follow.

Southwell Tip

The six-furlong handicap at 18:15 looks a really weak contest with four of the runners yet to win a race on the All-Weather and several of the others badly out of form and looking completely exposed. 

It is therefore an excellent opportunity for the ex Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned filly ATWAAR (NAP at 5/2) to gain a third career victory. This four-year-old daughter of Slade Power comes in to the race in fine form having won two of her last three starts, including over this course and distance in November. She finished a close second here at Southwell races when last seen nine days ago, but that effort can be upgraded given that she was struck in to on her left hind.  

The form of her Chelmsford win over seven furlongs has worked out well, so she still looks fairly treated off just 3lbs higher. She seems to be equally as effective over both trips and has Faye McManoman in the saddle again. This 5lb claimer appears to have built up a good relationship with the horse and has been aboard for each of her last four runs.
