Well Here we are in a new month and no real sign of spring yet. We had more snow and wintery temps yesterday which played havoc with the racing and has been playing havoc with the training regime of some of these horses.
Todays horses in focus is cut short with only the Lingfield meeting taking place but we will try and find a few runners at a track that has treated us well over the years.
Lingfield 2-55 Stakes (Class 5) 5f – A group of early season 2 year olds and one that mey look like a bargain purchase for only £7000 SANDY HEARTBEAT 18/1 is the outsider of the field but her dam was a forward juvenile while I would expect the horse to be a miler in time the breeding with Compton place should make for plenty of toe. Worth and each way punt and one to watch moving forward.
Lingfield 3-25 Seller (Class 6) 10f – SANDACRES 33/1 or bigger on the exchanges has dropped to a very workable mark and has run over inadequate trips most of his career. Still a maiden at 5 but only 14 runs and only just being stepped up in trip. This horse is bred to be a late developer and with the first-time tongue tie today could see the horse run a personal best today. Looks like a plot horse to me.
Lingfield 3-55 Stakes (Class 5) 8f – Well we have won with a 100/1 shot before so it doesn’t feel so crazy to advise one with a squeak. The horse will need to improve but the price is huge compared to the horse’s chance. APEX PREDATOR has run in 2 races at a higher level than this and ran with promise it’s a bet at these odds for sure even each way. I also quite like the look of 33/1 TESORINA as well. Even though the market makes a match out of the favourites there are plenty of unknowns and that makes both look poor value.
