Race of the Day – 4 December 2017

Race of the Day - 13:50 Southwell

Boost makes it onto The Shortlist today with three sections of green and two of grey, giving her a score of nine.

She runs in a competitive looking six-furlong handicap at Southwell today and is currently priced around 15/2.

Boost is a three-year-old that has had just the six races in her career to date, and she had won two and been placed in another two.

It appears that seven-furlongs have stretched her stamina in the last two races at Lingfield, so reverting back to six should be good for her. She hasn't raced here at Southwell before but has coped with the artificial surfaces at Kempton and Wolverhampton just fine, therefore, I would expect it to be the same on the fibresand here today.

When taking a look at the Sire Snippets report on the racecard, we can see that Boost's sire, Pivotal, has an excellent record with three-year-olds. He has had 96 winners (23.08%) and 181 places (43.51%) from 416 runners, for level stakes profits of 136.14 and 136.64 respectively. This has also produced an Impact Value of 1.93, meaning these runners are almost twice as likely as average to win.

Pivotal has a strike rate on the all-weather courses of nearly one percent higher than his overall record.

The Instant Expert report confirms the good showing of Boost, and she is just the four pounds higher than for her last win.

There aren't too many of her rivals in this race that has multiple sections of green, but Razin' Hell does and looks well suited to today's conditions. He is also one pound lower than for his last win, so looks to have potential in this one.

The Pace report shows that early leaders here over this distance have an excellent record, with 23.50% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 459.33 and an Impact Value of 1.97.

Razin' Hell and Boost have the highest pace scores and look the most likely to be the early leaders. They are drawn next to each other in stalls two and three, so that may help as they can drag each other along.
