In the 2.00 at Southwell on Thursday, Bring On A Spinner was beaten, but far from disgraced on his first attempt in 0-90 company over 5 furlongs on New Year’s Day and, dropping back down in class off a 2lb lower mark, is a strong fancy to resume winning ways. His previous course and distance win represented a career-best effort and he can take his record on Fibresand to 4-5 under regular partner Aaron Jones.
In the 5.50 at Chelmsford, Secret Bird can probably be forgiven his failure over course and distance two weeks ago and is better judged on his previous victory at Wolverhampton, where he made all to win by 2 lengths. He remains 6lb higher in the weights, but his most recent form has already been franked by the runner-up, Topsoil, and the return to 6 furlongs should do him no harm.
Selections: Southwell 2.00 Bring On A Spinner, Chelmsford 5.50 Secret Bird, 1-point Win Double
