Lucky 15

Thursday's racing, March 21, comes from Chepstow, Ludlow and Cork (jumps); plus all-weather fare from Southwell's Tapeta track.

The Thursday Lucky 15 tips are courtesy of the latter venue, with top sand connections chasing prize-money in some interesting contests. Eight races take place late afternoon/early-evening, so without further ado;

Lucky 15 tips Thursday

  • 18:00 Southwell - Engineer @ 11/2
  • 19:00 Southwell - Urban Dandy @ 3/1
  • 20:00 Southwell - Hard Solution @ 4/1
  • 20:30 Southwell - Ney @ 3/1

18:00 Southwell - Engineer @ 11/2

I've extensively previewed this one in my 'Nap of the Day' piece, which can be read in full by kindly clicking HERE

19:00 Southwell - Urban Dandy @ 3/1

A gelded four-year-old son of the brilliant Irish sprinter Dandy Man, who I followed off many Knavesmire cliffs back in the day as he tried, in vain, to win a Nunthorpe. Happy memories!

Urban Dandy ran very well over course-and-distance 11 days ago, and failed by the merest short-head. That one was worth a little more than this, but he contests another Class 6 off the very same mark, 54.

He suffered interference in the run, and with a clearer passage on Thursday must have a fantastic chance. It was his first try at this 7f trip too, and it obviously suited down to the ground.

20:00 Southwell - Hard Solution @ 4/1

Trainer Ruth Carr raids from North Yorkshire and James Sullivan, familiar with the horse, takes the mount.

Hard Solution is another who didn't enjoy the most straightforward of spins last time, over this trip (6f) at Chelmsford. The adorable, kindly handicapper has even dropped the eight-year-old Showcasing gelding a pound, and as he's evidently in good heart at the moment that's a lovely bonus.

20:30 Southwell - Ney @ 3/1

Danny Brooke is a Middleham handler I must confess I'm not terribly familiar with, but rider Billy Garrity is a top northern pro in sensational form - 30% strike-rate in the last 14 days.

Ney has negotiated this marathon trip really well here and at Newcastle in three tries (2m+) so far this year. Danny's only had the horse since December last, and has already struck with the six-year-old at this very track.

Ran off a mark of 48 then, and tries again off 54. This is a cracking heat, a lovely way to close the evening, and in Ney we've got an in-form stayer who will, I believe, take the beating.

This is an example of a Lucky 15. If you can improve upon my selections (of course you can), then go for it!

The odds can fluctuate between publishing our pieces and race-time. As a guide, a £0.50p win Lucky 15 on today's selections, at the prices, and assuming all four won, would return around £530 for your total £7.50 stake.
