It wasn't quite as successful on the punting front but I'm more than a little Bullish about my selections on Tuesday.
12.20 Confrerie – Liam Keniry can get the ball rolling on George Baker's progressive three-year-old.
He was a comfortable winner at Brighton two months ago off a mark of 53 and although he couldn't back it up at Kempton, he finished a very good second – nearly two-and-a-half lengths clear of the third.
The step up to a mile should elicit further improvement and he can improve to defy a 5lb rise.
With only 9lb separating the runners the handicap is compressed in the extreme, and it's likely the son of Society Rock is more open to improvement than than most.
12.30 Dawnieriver – Michael Scudamore has his team hotter than the Gobi and his mare is on a hat-trick.
Course form is pretty important at quirky Southwell and she saw off a pretty decent sort from Ireland at Fakenham last time, so clearly goes well on idiosyncratic tracks.
The money was down on the raider that day and it's likely the form is pretty strong, for all that there were only three runners.
She tackles another small field today, and realistically only three of them count.
Bob Buckler's mare Hoo Bally Diva will probably start a warm order but she has to give weight away on her handicap debut and looks on quite a tough mark, while other danger Archview Sunshine may well have fluked her way to victory when striking at 80-1 last time out.
My selection is as consistent as Theresa May is persistent and she can pick up another prize here.

1.10 Tara Mac – Absolutely scooted home at Worcester on her penultimate start and although she wasn't as good last time, that was over hurdles.
Back over fences she's now operating off a career-high mark of 113 – which is completely fair considering her Midlands win was a massive career-best.
Bully's Tuesday Bankers
12.20 Lingfield – Confrerie
12.30 Southwell – Dawnieriver
1.10 Fakenham – Tara Mac
The ground is ideal for her to put her best foot forward once again and jockey Alan Johns has ridden four winners from his last fifteen rides.
Followers of this column will need her to be on form as she's prone to throwing in a rogue one, but if she turns up then she's got a big chance in a weak race for the grade.
