12:30 Lingfield (20th November) Free Horse Racing Tips

An EBF Maiden Stakes over 6f on standard going. Twelve juveniles take part, three fillies taking on the colts. All have race experience. James Fanshawe isn't the type of trainer to keep his two-year-olds on the go beyond the turf season and He's My Boy has shown promise on a couple of starts to date. This grey colt, a son of Dark Angle out of a debut-winning mare, has been relatively fancied in the betting, although a marked drifting just before the off when making his racecourse bow at Yarmouth. That most likely indicated a slight lack of fitness. I had this May foal in my sights when re-appearing less than two weeks later at Kempton. The stable went there with a fighting chance and while backed from 20-1 - 14/1 they knew they had their work cut out . This colt traveled well that day and headed the field at the two furlong pole but couldn't muster any real fight against the first three who are probably fair juveniles for this time of year. He's My Boy is far from a world beater and in truth still looks a little on the weak side. However, for a sizable field there doesn't look a great deal of opposition and there is some hope of hitting the frame if each way odds are for the taking. The main protagonists look to have something to prove with the application of the blinkers for Penny Sixpence, who must show ample ability on the gallops, but hasn't looked the most enthusiastic. While Flicksta seems more at home over the minimum trip and hindered by a wide draw. He could well try to get to the rail and consequently struggle to get home. He's My Boy should travel well - touching shorting odds in running - and looks good for a place, with chances of a win.
