Lingfield Placepot election: Paul Kealy picks a banker with ‘lots in hand’ | News about gratuities

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

Decent fields at Lingfield make it the obvious destination for a Placepot, though it may not be easy.

With the ground potentially on the slow side for the shapely Imphal in the opener (12.15), I will try to get him out of the first three with Thirtyfirestings and Freethinker.

The former intimidated a hat-trick seeker in Ascot last Saturday, while Freethinker went well far in Huntingdon and can come on again.

Bretney is every-way fancy in the next (12.45), but it’s obviously going to be hard to kick Move the chains out of the frame so he goes in too.

There are only seven in the claimed hurdle (1.15), however Heavenly power is a last-time-out winner with load in hand on the figures, then a banker looks like.

There are potentially some good types on show in the next beginner hurdles (1.45) and I hope the choice will be Duke of Rockingham, a comfortable bumper wins on his return, and Heltenham, who has joined Dan Skelton with some useful French form.

Star Academy is the biggest fancy for the next one (2.17), but it’s not a race to bet on. Dorking boy is not someone you can trust when it comes to a winning bet, but he knows how to finish in second place (four of the last seven start), so he goes in as well.

David Pipes Doyen La Lutte is the form mare in the last (2.47), but bumper horses Taleboble and Whiskey Express showed more than her in that sphere, so get nods.
