4:35 Lingfield Racing Tips (10th February)

Lingfield Racing Tips
LINGFIELD 4.35
There's 12 runners here and half of them have been known to lead before plus I've marked down 4 horses, Deeds Not Words, Picket Line, Peace Officer and Brother Tiger as possible lays if the price is value, Pour La Victoire is my 4th top rated and usually likes to track the leaders but its stuck out in stall 12 and also Juan Horsepower, my joint 2nd top rated, is drawn just on its inside in stall 11 and uses the same tactics and this one could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast in the early stages of the race, Very Honest is the other 2nd top rated after taking off its jockeys 3lb claim and this apprentice has a 4-21 win record for this stable and if from stall 2 it can get to the front on the rail it ought to prove very hard to catch but I have got BRIDGE BUILDER as my top rated who is in great form this year winning twice and a 2nd place in between its wins and has a chance to follow up again here, betting wise i will go with backing the selection and having 2 covering bets on Very Honest and Juan Horsepower.

What a cracking looking class 2 race, there's 11 runners and i cannot find a selection to win the race mainly because there's so few negatives against most of the runners and I'm not sure i will be having a bet in the race but that doesn't mean i cant lay some. Poyle Vinnie has only produced slowish times and looking as though further suits it better, Tomily may either prefer a longer trip or a slower surface or maybe both and its times reflect this, i will look to lay these 2 if the prices are of any value, if i was pushed i would side with BOOM THE GROOM 15/2 who looks the value in my opinion and might be able to at least contest the lead from stall 10, with only the horse in stall 4 being known as another front running sort, and if getting to the front it could prove hard to catch but the favourite Atletico must have a good chance of winning if it gets a clear run and can reproduce the time it did at Newcastle, OR you may prefer to sit back and watch what (on paper) looks to be a very good sprint race over the minimum distance and it will be run at a fast and furious pace, so sit back and enjoy,and good luck whatever you back.
