Farewell Fibresand: 167-1 surface lovers acca for Sunday

Southwell Racecourse

Fibresand has always been an acquired taste for horses, connections and punters alike. Those who love it absolutely adore the unique surface which will be used for the final time at Southwell on Sunday. Tapeta is being installed so let’s give it a last hurrah with a 167/1 acca on those who love the Fibresand. That price is with William Hill at time of writing.

There are four other cards for our horse racing tips to get stuck into on Sunday. Pontefract and Chelmsford in England with Dundalk and Tramore flying the flag in Ireland.

2.45 Southwell – Firewall Ltd Handicap

The record of Queen Of Kalahari on the Fibresand is little short of exceptional. Nine runs at Southwell, she has won six times, finishing second in two of the other three. Her last win came off a mark of 74, the same level that she is able to run off here. Two runs in 2021 have been modest but both have been on turf, this should suit her much better.

3.55 Southwell – N&L Franklin Developments Ltd Handicap

This will only be the third run here for Macmerry Jim but he has been first and second in the other two and in form terms, they are miles ahead of anything else he has achieved in his career. As such, he warrants inclusion as a lover of Fibresand.

This mark of 70 would be more than fair if he can run to that level for a third time, representing a yard who are masterful at producing their charges for the right targets at the perfect time.

4.30 Southwell – Sponsorship Signage @ signsolutions.org Handicap

He is only 3/13 here but the form of Tigray over this course and distance reads 112163 so it is easy enough to excuse his other efforts over different trips. He runs in the final race to be run on Fibresand, one that his trainer Mick Appleby is likely to have had circled in the calendar for a while. The top trainer at this course in recent years, he can go out with the winner of the finale.
