Accomplished and ex champion jockey Jamie Spencer has been racing all over the world in the off season but is now back in England and has just the one ride at Southwell today that is of worth some interest.
America, Canada and France, you name it and internationally Jamie Spencer has probably been racing there over the last few months and definitely at some point during his career.
Yesterday was his first rides of 2019 back in England at Wolverhampton where he had two rides for Irish National Hunt trainer Gordon Elliott and fell short on both finishing second and third.
Today is a new day and looks to have a solid chance with just one ride at Southwell's tricky fibresand track and when a jockey of his stature has only one ride at a meeting like this it is worth some notice.
The horse in question comes in the penultimate race of the day at the Nottinghamshire based track in the Follow Sun Racing On Twitter Handicap over 1 mile.
Makaarim for trainer Seamus Durack is top weight today and is giving weight round to the whole field and from looking at his form claims has to improve a hell of a lot to be involved in this field today.
However, there must be method in the madness to be getting Spencer to just ride this one horse today and we think we have spotted it.
All four runs for this new yard he has disappointed but now very well handicapped and has been given the addition of hood for his run today it could well and truly bring the best out of this five year old.
He will need to improve and will need to show some sort of revival to be amongst the placings but from his last run here he did show signs of ability on this surface and could be the gamble of the day.
