Tuesday 23 April Horse racing tips - Osborne's 5/2 chance can Cap a good performance at Lingfield

Brian Healy 23 Apr 2019
Lingfield is one of six UK and Irish horse racing meetings going to post on Tuesday.

Brian Healy gives his race-by-race selections and best bets across all of Tuesday's UK and Irish horse racing meetings.

Six UK and Irish horse racing fixtures go to post on Tuesday, and Fairyhouse in Ireland hosts a third day of racing action over the sticks.

Elsewhere, Sedgefield and Ludlow host Tuesday’s jumps racing in the UK; while there are also fixtures on the flat at Yarmouth on turf, and Wolverhampton on the all-weather.

Yarmouth (flat) - 1.30 - 4.35pm (7 races)
Sedgefield (jumps) - 1.40 - 4.45pm (7 races)
Ludlow (jumps) - 1.50 - 5.00pm (7 races)
Fairyhouse (jumps) - 2.10 - 5.45pm (8 races)
Lingfield (flat, aw) - 4.55 - 7.55pm (7 races)
Wolverhampton (flat, aw) - 5.10 - 8.10pm (7 races)



(2.35) AGENT BASTERFIELD (9/4, Boylesport) took a big step forward from his form last term when finishing runner-up on his return from a break at Chelmsford back at the beginning of the month; the Raven’s Pass colt can go one better here with that run likely to have sharpened him up.

The switch to handicaps seemed to work well for Andrew Balding’s charge, who posted an improved performance faced with a stiffer test last time, beaten just a head behind Hypnos and battling all the way to the line.

The pair reoppose with the selection on significantly better terms, and he can go one place better here to gain revenge.

(3.05) The consistent MAINSAIL ATLANTIC (11/2, Boylesport) can make a winning return to action and double his tally in the process here, and James Fanshawe’s charge ought to go close.

The Speigtstown colt has only once finished out of the first four home, and the switch to handicap company appears to have worked well with a near miss at Lingfield followed up by a win over Military Law at Linfield latest.

The four-year old appeared to win a shade readily, and the runner-up from the race gave the form a boost when winning next time. He turns out here from the same mark, and with the potential for further improvement to come he can remain competitive here.

1.30 - Hi Ho Silver
2.00 - Quiet Place
2.35 - Agent Basterfield
3.05 - Mainsail Atlantic
3.35 - King Of Comedy
4.05 - Klass Action
4.35 - Wiff Waff


(2.15) TWO HOOTS (11/4, Boylesport) has won two of his last four starts,which includes here last time earlier in the month when beating Choochoobugaloo. That was the second success at the Durham venue for the Tikkanen gelding who had also won here back in January.

Julie Forster’s charge found plenty for pressure on that occasion, digging deep to hold off the runner-up and a 4lbs rise in the weights may not prove beyond him despite this appearing to be a stronger race than the one he took latest.

She should remain competitive here, and with a good record at this venue he can follow up that latest outing.

(3.45) MAH MATE BOB (4/1, Boylesport) got off the mark when scoring over course and distance last month, beating Treasure Dillon by just over one length; George Bewley’s charge could get back on the scoresheet here having shaped as if still in decent heart at Newcastle latest when finishing fourth behind Ex S’elance.

He was beaten a fair distance, but he might have done too much too soon and he is perhaps worth chancing again from this mark; he can bounce back and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him go well here.

1.40 - Hey Bob
2.15 - Two Hoots
2.45 - Savannah Moon
3.15 - Sporting Press
3.45 - Mah Mate Bob
4.15 - Carter Mckay
4.45 - Fair Sheriff


(2.55) YOUNG WOLF (5/2, Boylesport) has shown some ability in all starts to date, latterly finishing third behind Captain Moirette at Catterick having been ridden too forcefully.

Jonjo O’Neill’s lightly raced Vinnie Roe gelding was beaten around twelve lengths that day, but he had got to within a half-length of Star Of Lanka the time before, and a repeat of that effort could be good enough to see him open his win account.

He takes a big step up in trip here as he switches to handicapping; but it wouldn’t come as a shock to see him find further improvement and every chance he can get off the mark in this contest.

1.50 - Santani
2.25 - Baby King
2.55 - Young Wolf
3.25 - Master Burbidge
3.55 - Hahadi
4.25 - Virak
5.00 - Bergamot


(2.40) OR JAUNE DE SOMOZA (11/8, Boylesport) has run well on his last two starts over fences, finishing third each time which includes in a Grade Three contest at Navan back in December.

Henry de Bromhead’s charge returns to the larger obstacles following a fair sixth of ten runners behind Eclair De Beaufeu at this venue over hurdles back in January, and the Bernebeau gelding can get off the mark over fences now.

A dual hurdles winner, this is a much easier task facing him than the Grade Three race he tackled last time, and still unexposed as a chaser he can find further improvement.

(3.10) PRAVALAGUNA (6/4, Boylesport) found the JLT Novices’ Chase too much of a test last time out, but Willie Mullins’ charge can bounce back in this easier grade to quickly regain the winning thread.

The Great Pretender mare had won her previous two outings which included a Listed win over Baie Des Iles at Naas back in February, and she boasts solid claims given she remains unexposed over fences.

Her jumping isn’t always the best, but a clear round will put her in the mix and it is perhaps significant that Ruby Walsh prefers her over the yard’s other runner in the race, Camelia De Cotte. 

She is worth chancing that she can put her Cheltenham disappointment behind her to get back on the scoresheet here.

2.10 - Momus
2.40 - Or Jaune De Somoza
3.10 - Pravalaguna
3.40 - Surf Instructor
4.10 - Defi Bleu
4.40 - Jezki
5.15 - Road To Riches
5.45 - Larquebuse


(5.25) A dearth of winning form to this race, so LACAN (6/4, Boylesport) gets the vote to come out on top here having posted a couple of creditable recent performances in better races than this, and the drop to a seller can see the New Approach gelding go close.

Brett Johnson’s charge has finished fifth on each of her his last two starts, but he has been beaten only around three lengths each time and he could be capable of ending his year-long losing streak in this lower grade.

(5.55) CAPOFARO (5/2, Boylesport) could prove to be better than his current mark in time, and the Kyllachy gelding could prove the answer here.

Jamie Osborne’s charge stepped up on some moderate form when faced with a stiffer test two starts ago at Kempton, getting off the mark with a defeat of Sir Jamie; he subsequently found only Comeonfeeltheforce a half-length too strong back there last time out.

The latter has a claimer up now, leaving the Slade Power filly better at the weights; but she is not as well drawn as the selection who is less exposed and could have better to come. He can uphold that form from their last encounter, and he can get back on the scoresheet here.

4.55 - Weloof
5.25 - Lacan
5.55 - Capofaro
6.25 - Probability
6.55 - Maid Of Spirit
7.25 - Fareeq
7.55 - Rich Cummins


(6.10) HARRY CALLAGHAN (6/5, Boylesport) has thrived since being fitted with a visor, winning three of his last four starts which includes last time out at Kempton where the Dutch Art gelding readily saw off Schindlers Ark.

Mick Channon’s improving four year old looks with sticking with given that he didn’t appear to be coming to the end of his improvement tether, having been eased down close home after sprinting clear. 

His previous defeat when finishing third might have been down to the longer trip stretching his stamina, but this distance suits well and with only a 3lbs rise in the weights to contend with he could follow up.

(8.10) SADLER’S SOUL (7/1, Boylesport) shaped well in defeat when making her debut at Lingfield last month, finishing third behind Kvetushka, and Archie Watson’s charge can go one better here.

That initial experience won’t have been lost on the Revolutionary filly, and she was only beaten a half-length behind the winner. Of the nine runners which went to post, there was only around three lengths between the first eight home with the last to finish looking very green; it is debatable then how strong the form is, but she is surely open to improvement.

First-time cheekpieces could help her to find some further progress, and she looks very capable of getting off the mark with a repeat of that debut run.

5.10 - Tha’ir
5.40 - Loulin
6.10 - Harry Callaghan
6.40 - Sureyoutoldme
7.10 - Havana Ooh Na Na
7.40 - Suakin
8.10 - Sadler’s Soul
