Lingfield and Kempton for Wednesday

Three from Lingfield and Four from Kempton with a chancer stuck on the end.....................

4:00 Lingfield My selection here goes a little against the grain in that it is a hold up horse, Forward Feline has been finishing well over 7f the last twice and gets the vote to be in the mix for a back to lay at the sharp end of the race . Tries a mile for the first time today and hoping may bring about enough improvement.

4:30 Lingfield After two runs back , Bid For Glory should be spot on for today usually ridden as a stalker 10f seems to suit has won as high as class 3 on the AW  albeit 2 years back . Showed last time with a 1l length 3rd over c&d that it retains some ability. Will be my back to lay , should get a reasonable price as Franco Is My Name i would think will be rather short.

5:00 Lingfield 2 3/4 length second in a class 6 first time up then made favourite for a class 4 over c&d last time makes Captain Cool a good looking back to lay receiving weight from the main protagonists. Last in that class 4 the fact remains that it must of been showing something for it to be made fav , i would think they may be after their money back today.With a Johnston handicap debutant in the field the price could be nicely playable.

5:10 Kempton Back below his last winning mark and even though it was May 09 last time he got his head infront Sir Haydn stands a chance today. Now 10 and devoid of any improvement the handicapper gives him a chance and with his regular amateur onboard will be an interesting back to lay.

5:40 Kempton R Woody back after a small rest , hasn't let me down so far so back in again. May get a bit of value here with Texas Queen in the race.

6:10 Kempton I know Absa Lutte is improving but Glamorous Spirit likes to lead and take it from the front has the c&d form and receives 9lb for a length and 3/4 on their 3rd of Feb run . I know this represents a good back to lay.Lord Of The Reins also has a 10lb pull on Absa Lutte on that running. I wouldn't want to put Absa Lutte down as a lay but with 2 in there weighted to get very close i think i have found the value options.

7:10 Kempton Ektimaal has won off this mark before although it was a couple of years ago has the c&d form likes to be prominent , i would think the price will be double digit as would have to be on top form to figure. Will give him a go .

7:40 Kempton As you may have realised by now i like to stick the odd weird and wonderful selection in now and again. So here is todays - why was Old Devil Moon made favourite for it's handicap debut ? Reading its form brings nothing to light apart from its always tried to be prominent and usually folded 1 to 2 f out. Fitness will have to be taken for granted but with a winter on its back to strengthen may just have improved.

Well there endeth the sermon , please leave any suggestions as to any improvements you would like to see on the blog or encouragement or even abuse if it all goes pear shaped..............
