Southwell – 30th November: DOM’S NAP + NB | Tuesday’s 2 Best Bets

Our two best bets for the action at Southwell on Tuesday afternoon

Southwell’s NAP: UNE DE LA SENIERE | 12:55pm Cazoo Mares’ Novices’ Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Fergal O’Brien’s mare has been a creditable sort for connections since her switch to the Gloucestershire yard and a switch to fences is now on the agenda.

There could be more to come over the larger obstacles now back down in grade and she’s only 5lb higher than her latest win over hurdles, so is hard to dismiss at the weights here.

Alpha Carinae represents the in-form Olly Murphy stable but was a remote third on chase debut at Kempton Park earlier this month, so must step forward from that.

NB: KILLANE | 3:30pm Cazoo Handicap Hurdle

The handbrake was well and truly off for Donald McCain’s representative at Ayr last time out and a 5lb rise may not be enough to stop him taking another step forward here.

He was well held in novice events earlier in his career but a switch to handicap company clearly resulted in some improvement and there may be more to come with 7lb claimer Peter Kavanagh back on board.

Midnight Callisto holds some strong bumper form but has yet to really transfer that to the hurdle sphere.
