Where's Reiley to shine at Southwell

The American bred Where's Reiley has 4 wins to his name at Southwell so clearly acts well on this track and he showed last time out that a win was not far away when he came with a strong run to finish a close 5th behind Sleepy Blue Ocean here and meets that rival on 5lb better terms. A couple of others who finished in front of him there also oppose but he should be able to get the better of all of them and the stable were 2 -2 here on tuesday so are continuing their good run of form.
Others that should be involved in the finish are Sloop Johnb who is in the form of his life at the moment and David Nicholls Six Wives who won in a good time here last time out when making her debut for him after a 3 month absence and she could be a real thorn in the side for the selection with her jockey claiming 7lbs if she improves for the run, although her jockey does not have many wins to her name.
Bookiesindex Boy often comes with a wet sail only to fall in a hole when put under pressure and a similar scenario looks like unfolding for him.
Overall then Where's Reiley should go very close for his in form stable and the 9/2 with William Hill represents good value.

  1. Close! Looks like Bookiesindex Boy came on for his recent run (after a 4-month break) and had the strong pace he needs to record his 1st win in nearly 12 months.

  2. Yes I was nearly right, I managed to narrow the field down to 4 and got the first 3 again with the Tricast paying £239.89 and the Trifecta which only had 50p of winning tickets paying £186.60.
    In last weeks edition of Up a bit, down a bit I picked out 2 horses from Sleepy Blue Oceans race, they were Bookiesindex Boy and Where's Reiley, todays 1st and 2nd, the exacta paid £59.41.
