22nd Feb 2018 2nd 8/1 – Poyle Vinnie – Mick Appleby Southwell

Only just missed out – but at 8/1 still a nice e/w return. Original quote: “Poyle Vinnie – We expected a bit better recently, but the return to Southwell is certainly a plus. Continues to drop down the ratings and we are now off a mark of 90, which looks very attractive as he’s been in the 100’s. Yes, not getting any younger at 8 but dropping into a Class 3 here helps. Bit to find with Foolaad, who beat us a few starts ago, but we are much better off at the weights with that one this time. Competitive and a race that all 7 look to have a squeak, but would not be surprised to see Vinnie run well and looks one of my better chances on the day.”
