4:05 Lingfield Racing Tip (28th March) BEST ODDS AT BOOKMAKERS.CO.UK HANDICAP

Rigoletto looks the only horse that likes to lead and it comes out fourth on my figures - so may be able to hold on for a place at best. The second, Volito, and third, Temple Road, and top rated can both either be held-up or track the leaders. MULTITASK is the best rated, a hold-up horse which hopefully can finish fast to capture this race. Pettochside has recorded a time over this distance at Kempton, which would put it in second place, so could make the frame.

4:40 Lingfield - Another race with only one known front runner. Fair Value comes out second in my figures so should be hard to catch especially if it gets an easy lead and holds something in reserve to repel the finishers. Top rated is PICANSORT, who is a hold-up type and should be able to get a nice early position from stall five and prove the strongest at the line.

6:30 Wolverhampton -There are four possible pace makers in this race: Louis Vee, drawn five, Rise To Glory, drawn four, Cadmium Loch, drawn eight and Novalist, drawn 3, so there could be some very fast action near the rails. If Novalist can gain the advantage from the nearest stall to the rail of the front runners it may be hard to catch as it's my second top rated. Top rated SEWN UP, who is drawn wider in stall ten, can hopefully be held-up or get a nice early position to track the leaders and prove the strongest coming home.

SUMMARY: 4:05 Lingfield - Multitask is the 5/2 favourite and merits those odds. 4.40 Lingfield - I'm hoping Picansort can get a clear run in the latter stages of the race and pick them up. A fair bet at odds of 4/1. 6:30 Wolverhampton - Another race where I'm hoping Sewn Up can get a clear run when it matters and is a decent each way bet at 10/1.

Multitask 5/2 1st
Picansort 4/1 1st
