Friday's racing tips: Friday outsider to fill your pockets at Southwell from Jack Keene

Friday's racing tips: Friday outsider to fill your pockets at Southwell from Jack Keene

December 21, 2018

I'm not saying I'd like to move abroad just yet – but I do like the look of MAMA AFRICA at Southwell.

Trainer David Barron is a shrewdie of the highest order and he doesn't send them to the sandy plains of Southwell if he doesn't think he's getting a return.

His four-year-old has had four outings at the beach, winning two of them – and it would be of little surprise to see her add to her tally now.

Her most recent outing on the surface came back in April where she was just beaten by a decent sort at the level and finished five lengths ahead of the nearest pursuer.

There's little doubt she has the gears to win this kind of race and considering she's still unexposed on synthetics there could be plenty more to come.

Jane Elliott can only claim 3lb rather than 5lb but that merely means she's riding more winners and there are few better young jocks out there.

She's copped an inside draw so should get a decent early position and I'm expecting her to do the business.
