21st Mar 2017 2nd 8/1 – Red Touch – Mick Appleby Southwell

No chance with the winner, but a much improved performance from Mick’s horse. Original quote: “Red Touch – Been running ok without winning of late, but dropped another 2lbs here to give us a better chance. We are, however, going back to 6f to mix it up. Shows enough pace to cope with the drop – especially on this surface – while the slight drop in grade will also be in his favour. Ali rides and claims 3lbs so should not be far away again, but still a tiny bit to prove with last win coming off 2lbs lower.”
