4:10 Lingfield Racing Tips (20th January)

Lingfield racing tips
LINGFIELD 4.10
As usual a complex handicap with some conflicting/confusing stats, there's four known front running types in the race and i think this race will be won by a horse ridden prominently, Secret Strategy has got stall one which is always a bonus but may need to improve a few pounds for the switch to this track, Indian Affair is in stall six which could mean those drawn between these two fast starters may get squeezed out to some degree, Anonymous John would be top rated using a time from 2016 but he didn't equal it last year and the jockey deployed in this race is 0-15 for the stable which puts me off, then add on the stall twelve draw connections might be waiting for a better opportunity for this one, my top rated from a 2017 time is the bottom weight BRIDGE BUILDER 5/1 who is coming out of stall eight and can hopefully follow Indian Affair over to the rail and then either lead all the way or contest the lead and stay on the stronger at the finish.

Bridge Builder 6/1 2nd

Another trickylittle race but once again I think it might be won from the front as there's six natural front running types in this race, I've got negatives against two of the other three runners and that third one isn't in my top four on my ratings, Swendab is my fourth top rated but stall eight isn't going to help it with five fast starters inside it so it might struggle with the make-up of this race, Fast Act only ran over this course and distance once last year but a time from 2016 would make it second top and stall six might not be ideal in this race, Red Stripes is my second top rated using 2017 times and has stall one so cannot be dismissed easily but I'm not sure about the jockey booking as hes 0-10 for the stable, in top spot is ZIPEDEEDODAH 13/2 who is in stall five and that could be the second best draw in this race and if either getting to contest the lead or leading itself it could prove hard to catch, the jockey booked to ride is 2-7 for this stable and the stable has a healthy 21% win ratio in apprentice race, so everything points to connections hoping for a big run here.
