LINGFIELD RACING TIPS
RENARDEAU (6/5, William Hill) has been in good form since switching to the all-weather, bouncing back from a lesser run at Southwell in October where he failed to take to the surface to win both subsequent runs at this venue in December.
Ali Stronge’s charge bumped into one at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day where he finished runner-up to Clap Your Hands; he filled the same position on his next start back over this course and distance when finishing less than a length behind Battle Of Marathon.
That winner has gone in again since and the Foxwedge gelding had the reopposing Giving Glances almost five lengths adrift. That one has work to do on these terms to overturn the form and the selection can confirm the places here with a repeat of his latest effort.
AL DAIHA (9/2, Bet365) was only run down late in the day over ten furlongs at this venue back in January. That form is working out quite well and Ed Walker’s charge could be worth chancing to get off the scoresheet following a break.
The Olympic Glory filly has rattled the crossbar the last twice, finishing less than one length adrift on her latest outing. That run came over ten furlongs but she turns out here over a shorter trip and a similar effort might be enough to see her get back on the scoresheet.
She has only been raised 1lb for that last outing, and while she doesn’t have the best of the draw for this latest outing it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her competitive again if jockey Luke Morris can get him into a good position early.
Simon Crisford saddles two in this race and it could be CORVAIR (11/4, William Hill) which proves the pick of the duo.
The Toronado colt arrives on a hat-trick of wins having won his last two starts at this venue and Wolverhampton albeit over seven furlongs each time. However, he showed at Newcastle in December that six furlongs holds no fears when finishing runner-up to Splendidly.
His latest win saw him score by a nose from Lethal Talent and he is only 2lbs higher in the weights for this latest outing. His stable-mate might just be anchored by his big weight now following his winning spree so it may pay to side with Sylvestre De Sousa’s mount who is open to plenty of improvement.
2.30 – Vertice
3.00 – Renardeau
3.30 – Pitchers Point
4.00 – Al Daiha
4.30 – Corvair
5.00 – Mr Fox
KEMPTON RACING TIPS
STAR OF BENGAL (11/2, William Hill) was highly tried last term following his Chelmsford win on his reappearance in May where John Gosden’s charge beat Exec Chef by a half-length.
The Oasis Dream entire struggled in Group Three and Listed company on subsequent outings, and he might have been amiss on his final outing in a Chelmsford handicap when failing to beat a rival home behind Bin Battuta.
He’s not been seen out since but he could be worth chancing here under Frankie Dettori given he won first time up last term following a break from just 2lbs below this mark.
WIN WIN POWER (4/1, Bet365) shaped encouragingly when making his debut at Lingfield last month, looking as if he’d come on for the run when finishing fourth behind Dublin Pharoah.
Slowly away on that occasion, he looked green and in need of the experience but finished off well once the penny appeared to drop. He ought to come on for that first run and every chance he can improve to do much better at the second attempt.
The Exceed and Excel colt wasn’t given a hard time from the saddle; but it was an encouraging first start and he could step up for that debut to go close here with Sylvestre De Sousa in the plate.
5.15 – Star Of Bengal
5.45 – Songo
6.15 – Be Fair
6.45 – Win Win Power
7.15 – New World Tapestry
7.45 – Tranchee
8.15 – Griggy
