Racing League Round Three Tips: Engine to roar to victory at Lingfield on Thursday

Check out our tips for night three of the Racing League
Check out our tips for night three of the Racing League

It's week three of the Racing League on Thursday evening, and it's the turn of Lingfield Park to host the new innovation as Team Racehorse Lotto (122pts) lead the way after two spectacular nights of action over the last fortnight. Focusing on Thursday's action on the all-weather at Lingfield, we pick out our three best bets for the action...

18:08 Lingfield Park - William Hill Play Responsibly Racing League Race Fourteen

Paul & Oliver Cole's Ivatheengine failed to land any sort of blow at Doncaster last week in the Racing League, but the four-year-old is looking to bounce back to top form and claim victory in the William Hill Play Responsibly Racing League Race Fourteen at 18:08. Held up in that recent outing at Doncaster, Ivatheengine made no impression whatsoever in terms of challenging for victory, but he did begin to make ground in the closing stages, so a more prominent ride in this event could see him in a much better light. 

It will be the third time Ivatheengine features in the Racing League, as prior to that Doncaster run he had run a mighty race when finishing second to Strike Red at Newcastle a couple of weeks ago. He showed he enjoyed the all-weather surface that day in the north east, so a return to that could prove to be a significant positive, and he's only 2lb higher in the handicap in this Thursday's event, so a mark of 87 looks workable.

Much like the Doncaster run, Ivatheengine stormed home late on in that Newcastle and was unable to get to the winner. So, while they may hold him up once again on Thursday, if they can just let him sit a little nearer the pace and unleash his finishing surge a earlier then that could give him the optimum chance of bagging glory in what looks a hugely competitive second race on the card.

18:38 Lingfield Park - William Hill Pick Your Places Racing League Race Fifteen

Mick Appleby's Mohareb is well fancied to claim victory in the third race on the card at 18:38, as the recent course and distance winner looks to build on that July success and record back-to-back wins at Lingfield Park. However, he failed to fire in the Racing League at Newcastle two weeks ago off a mark of 86, and he will line up off that figure on Thursday evening. There's no doubting a return to Lingfield could see him claim victory, but he looks too short in the betting and is worth opposing.

One that catches the eye is the James Fanshawe-trained Isola Rossa, who herself is a course and distance winner, and is bidding for a second career win. Ever since breaking her maiden tag on her second start Lingfield, Isola Rossa has failed to get her head in front again, and was last seen finishing fourth at Newcastle in the Racing League in late July.

She was running on in the closing stages of that event to suggest there could be more potential improvement in her, so a return to Lingfield, where she has shown she can deliver the goods, looks a real positive, and having been dropped 1lb to a mark of 81 then she can lay it down to the likely favourite Mohareb, who may just come unstuck in an intriguing contest.

20:08 - William Hill Build Your Odds Racing League Race Eighteen

We head to the sixth and final race of the evening for our third selection at Lingfield and it's an improving middle distance performer that catches the eye in the 20:08 contest, and it's the Roger Varian-trained Lydford that can bound to glory in the finale.

Featuring for the second time in the Racing League, Lydford was last seen finishing a fine second at Newcastle two weeks ago, and he left a lasting impression, as he was closest at the finish. Beaten half a length that day, Lydford will be hoping that he can go one better on Thursday, and if he can hold a prominent position heading into the final furlongs then he could well storm to the front late.

He's been upped 3lb for that performance, so he will have to try and defy a new mark of 86, but the lightly-raced son of Fastnet Rock shaped like that rating is more than fair, and he could well prove to be ahead of the handicapper by landing this competitive event at Lingfield.

The likes of Red October and Scampi should prove to be notable adversaries in the race, but it's Lydford who catches the eye and he can complete our hat-trick of tips for a sparkling night three of Racing League action.
