Lingfield and Wolverhampton for Friday

Four at Lingfield and three at Wolverhampton for your perusal ....................... Back to Lay for two points.

1:55 Lingfield As stated 3 days ago Obe Gold hasn't won over 7f since January 06 and although consistently running well is obviously vulnerable over this distance.Interesting that Guillambert gets off Obe to ride Ravi River yet Ravi is wrong at the weights. Lastkingofscotland is the selection here likes to lead sees out a mile and his last run in this grade saw him a head second to Wrighty Almighty over a mile. Down a furlong today with Ravi and Obe at the head of the betting market should give us a decent price to play with.

2:25 Lingfield Bollywood Style has been knocking on the door recently and if a high single or double figure price can be secured she will be the selection here. Has the c&d form and has not been far off , off this mark recently. The reason a good price is to be secured is because of the horses running style , usually a stalker which sometimes leaves her open to trouble.

3:00 Lingfield Pipers Piping will probably be favourite to go in again , but i will side with the maiden Towy Boy likes to be prominent , has ran some of his best races over 7f and was made favourite, not surprisingly last time. That race was over 6f back to 7f today should do the trick for a back to lay.

3:35 Lingfield This race is all about where the value lies and a price check will be required . Fromsong is a pound better off with Thoughtsofstardom  for a 2l beating over 5f on the 27th of Jan , in the same race Handsome Cross was a 1/2 length second and meets Thoughts on the same terms.Fromsong likes to be prominent as does Thoughtsofstardom, Handsome Cross is hold up . On the other hand Vintage can be ridden to suit race conditions and is such a strong traveller throughout his races that he will be my selection . Marginally above his last winning mark looks the one for the back to lay here as 6f seems to suit.

5:15 Wolverhampton Turf Time and Exceed Power meet Duke Of Rainford on worse terms than when behind him on the 22nd of January.Lady Brickhouse is 2lb better off with Turf Time for a head.Think the betting will revolve around these 3 . Young George for me looks a lightly raced type that will possibly improve  likes to be up with the pace and at the prices should be quite tradeable.

5:45 Wolverhampton Don't really know what Paktolos' price will be ( currently 4.5 on BF ) i think his run over c&d two runs back  looked like he improved for the step up in distance and can see him going in again. Will back to lay but may be worth waiting until IR as he gets held up at the back. At 5 upward is worth a back to lay.

8:15 Wolverhampton Will be interesting to see how short Demonstrative goes as was impressive last time. The Glamour Cat was equally impressive first time up this year and you can only put its last run down to a bounce. This and handicap debutant Libertino interest me. Glamour Cat currently 6.6 on betfair will be the selection as that win looked easy and at the prices think there is value there.

We seem to be on All Weather over load at the moment with 2 meeting most days , although this offers up many oportunities i must be careful not to over do it.

Gluck and may those runners go short ...........
