1:30 Lingfield (19th February) Free Racing Tips

Too much to go through every horse in every race today so I'm going to give a detailed summary of each race.

1:30 Lingfield -  a seven runner race and two horses, Kuanyao and Come On Dave, who like to lead so should set a decent early pace. The selection Drawnfromthepast can either be held-up or track the leaders and comes out as usual top of my ratings. Its last run can be ignored as it was over six furlongs and the horse should be much happier again back over the five furlong trip. It's a fairly tight claiming race and I'm hoping the seven pound claiming apprentice can swing the weights in its favour. He's only had five races but hasn't rode a winner yet so I suggest you keep stakes to a minimum.

2:00 Lingfield -  the only horse known to lead is Greenhead High. But he would prefer a slower course and doubt even with an uncontested lead he could be strong enough to make the frame. I think the selection Rise To Glory should be able to make use of his stall two draw and track the leaders proving the strongest in the finish.

5:25 Kempton - with eight runners it means they pay a quarter the odds for the first three horses and that makes me think the selection is decent value at 11/2 a win or 11/8 a place. Half the field, Desert Strike, Sir Geoffrey, Roy's Legacy and Novabridge have all been known to try to lead before and I think they make take each other on early and set the race up for a fast finishing type. I do think the selection Your Gifted has got a reasonable chance off bottom weight.

7:25 Kempton - the early pace in this race may come from Firmdecisions who is ideally drawn in stall one for a front runner. But it isn't in my top four on figures so doubt if he can lead all the way. Also, I'm sure that the jockey, George Baker, who is riding very well at the moment on the all-weather, can find a decent early position on the selection, O'Gorman to come late and fast to grab the spoils with this hold-up horse who has run very well before when returning from a break from racing.
