4:35 Lingfield Racing Tips (26th February)

Big Priced Winners
A poor class 7 race where only Blistering Dancer is known as a front runner, its been 2nd a couple of times but both at Southwell and I'm not sure this surface suits it,top rated is HEAD SPACE 33/1 but the trainer is 0-18 here and the apprentice jockey 0-4 which is off putting but i will have a stake of some level on it but I've noticed MAJOR ASSAULT 100/1 who wasn't in form with its 4 runs last year but this is a drop in class and the trainer has a 3-9 record at this course and the jockey is 2-3 for the stable so it looks like connections are expecting a big run here, the prices are a lot bigger than i expected but i will go with 2 small each way bets.

Major Assault 100/1 1st (Pure Genius!!!!)
A poor effort for class 2 race with only 6 runners, I've halved the field and any of Reckless Endeavour, Dougan and Compas Scoobie i think could win but if Relektor gets an easy lead it could attempt to pinch the race from the front and its probably a race best left alone but the betting will be the final deciding factor.
An 8 runner 5 furlong dash with 5 of the runners having been known to lead before although a couple of them aren’t natural front runners so maybe wont try to lead here, Something Lucky who admittedly did its best in 2016 would need to spring back to form but that may be beyond it here but never say never, Big lachie could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast and fade inside the final furlong but from stall 4 MIDNIGHTLY 12/1 ought to be able to get out quickly and gain control of the rails and then could be hard to catch and at the price there's a bit of insurance in being able to back it each way.

Midnightly 12/1 1st (Wow!!!!)
