Today's Horse Racing Tips: Punting at Lingfield

Today's selections come from Kelso and Lingfield.
Today's selections come from Kelso and Lingfield.

It was a good day yesterday with both selections winning. Eclair Surf (advised at 11/2) was very well backed through the day and was sent off as the 5/2 favourite for the in-form Emma Lavelle stable. He jumped brilliantly for an inexperienced chaser and put any stamina doubts to rest by staying on strongly up the Sandown hill. He will be forced up in grade now but still looks open to plenty more improvement.

The betting markets told a different story for my other selection. Having put Fred up at 5/1 in the morning, he drifted alarmingly and spent much of the day at 11/1. He eventually went off at 9/1 but made pretty much all the running to win comfortably under a good ride from Franny Norton. It was my fourth consecutive winner at Chelmsford and followed on from Dutch Decoy (5/1), Indigo Times (9/4) and Edraak (7/2).

There are two bets for today’s racing at Kelso and Lingfield.

Cheltenham Festival Tips

Kelso Tip

14:50 – 2m7½f Edinburgh Gin Chase (Class 2)

I had backed Duc De Grissay when he unseated the rider at the last fence here last time out. He was unlucky that day and would probably have won the race. He should go well again with Brian Hughes on board for the first time, but he isn’t sure to be suited by the drop back in trip.

Slight preference is for the lightly-raced 11-year-old JONNIESOFA (NAP – 1 point win bet at 9/1). A dual point to point winner, he won a Grade 2 over hurdles before lining up in the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival. He has since won three of his eight starts over fences, including on his seasonal reappearance at Carlisle back in December.

He travelled all the way to Ascot to contest a really competitive handicap last time out but was pulled up on ground that was too quick. This race is nowhere near as strong, he has been dropped 2lbs by the handicapper and should relish the underfoot conditions at Kelso. He won on his only previous visit here, albeit over hurdles, and looks overpriced.

Lingfield Tip

15:00 – 1m4f Betway Handicap (Class 4)

Trainer Richard Hughes looks to have found a good opportunity for PUNTING (1 point win bet at 3/1) to record a fourth career success. This four-year-old filly goes well fresh and won on her return from a similar break last June. That came over ten furlongs at this course, but she has shaped as though further improvement is possible over this longer trip. She ran against Enable in the Group 3 September Stakes two starts back and should appreciate this return to Polytrack. Richard Kingscote could get an uncontested lead aboard Renardeau, who is next best.
