12:15 Southwell Racing Tips(29th December)

It's been a quiet time for blog updates over this festive period. Good to rest. Very little of interest in these closing days of the two-year-old season. 

A poor 0-65 rated nursery. I won't be trawling through this in search of any big fish. Just horses acting like sharks. 

David Evans is a canny old stick who does well with his juveniles. Felisa has been kept busy with fourteen races, including a win and placed four times. This bay filly is a daughter of Multiplex in the ownership of King Power Racing Co Ltd. It's a wonder she hasn't earned more than £7,699 because she is a durable, gritty and resolute individual. The kind of horse most owners would be proud simply because she is never far away. A liking for fourth place details her story in ways.

Starting her career at 5f, this March foal takes her chance over 1 mile for the first time. She liked to get her toe in on the turf so this surface shouldn't be a problem although it is her debut at Southwell. Often held up over lesser distances, if not outpaced, she will find this a much slower pace. Whether this trip will test her stamina only time will tell. However, this mark is about right and if enjoying this extra yardage should run a race. 

I will take a watching brief, but a filly who could go well at each-way prices.
