This is a strange race to sum up. Firstly, there's no confirmed front runner in the race so a possibility it could become a tactical affair. I guess that something will try to lead but I don't know who? My top rated is Welsh Inlet - 10/1. It maybe worth a small each-way bet but I won't be backing anything. One horse that I think is way too short in the betting is Hamis Al Bin 4/1. It's quite
capable of hitting the frame so I would be suggesting that you lay this horse to lose. I wouldn't go as far as saying it cant make the frame although I wouldn't be surprised if it was unplaced. It's not in the top six on my figures! Assertive Agent 7/2 hasn't produced enough yet to make me think it can win but its a four year old so could still have some improvement to come. I think you could lay this for the win part only. It has only one win to its name and that was a maiden over course and distance. However, the time was quite slow and didn't register in my top six. The favourite Volito won over course and distance on Wednesday - so in form. It looks like the trainer is out to get another win from the horse before the handicapper has time to re-assess.
3.30 Lingfield - three horses can lead: Little Choosey, Waterloo Dock and the selection SEAMSTER. I think the latter pair are more likely to lead but Waterloo Dock has a tendency to go off too fast and burn out before the end of the race. Seamster made all last time out and Seamster is drawn nearer to the rail. Richard Ford's gelding should be able to cover any move. I'm not a fan of siding with favourites - well not for the sake of it - but Seamster 2/1 is top rated on my figures. This chestnut can lead all the way or sit close behind the likely front runner Waterloo Dock and take it up when that one fades. If the favourite runs to its best form I can't see anything else getting into the race. At the prices I don't think there's any value laying the other horses. (E.R.I.C.)
