13.00 Southwell: Little Jo

Little Jo has a habit of running well at big prices, including off slightly higher marks than this, and finds himself in a race where it is difficult to find contenders with obvious potential to improve.

After a disappointing effort two starts ago, the nine-year-old ran well enough over course and distance last time out, and with the headgear reapplied, he might fare even better on Thursday.

He is 3lb lower than when second over course and distance just six weeks ago and a reproduction of that effort will certainly see him go close.

Gemma Tutty has not run many runners recently but some of her string have run been running very well, and she also has plenty of entries, so could be among the winners soon.

2.10 Southwell: Tiger Crusade

David Simcock has his team in very good form and Tiger Crusade took advantage of a good mark last time out in a similar event to this.

He is just 3lb higher now over the same course and distance and has a strong chance of following up here under the same rider, Daniel Muscutt.

He is still on a rating that is lower than he was running well off last summer, so a repeat of his latest performance may well be good enough.
