RACE PREVIEWS & TIPS (TUESDAY)

Lingfield 14:25 A Class 4 handicap over two miles is where we find our first selection today. Annie Alainn arrives here with the best recent form on offer having notched up a hat-trick late last year but all these came in Class 5’s and he was well held off his new mark when stepped up in to Class 4 company last time out so may struggle again today having only been eased 1lbs. Dormouse has recorded three wins and a close second from four attempts over course and distance, all on heavy ground. One of these came in a Class 3 off a mark of 114 and another came in a Class 4 off a mark of 117 so even though his recent form hasn’t been anything special a return to a course he excels at off a mark of 105 looks too big an opportunity to pass up. Although the early favourite is Darwins Theory he’s gone up 4lbs for a second over course and distance last time out so the biggest danger looks to be Sea Wall who won off today’s mark over course and distance in December 2015 and has since won on heavy ground at Taunton over today’s trip off a 4lbs higher mark. DORMOUSE (E/W if 9/2+) – NAP

Lingfield 16:30 Up Four It showed great battling qualities to beat the highly regarded Barney From Tyanee by almost two lengths over course and distance earlier this month, with third a further three lengths behind. That was his first win in eighteen career runs but with the majority of this twelve-strong field arriving with little or no recent form to speak of he looks capable of defying a 5lbs rise and recording a quickfire double. At the time of writing Landscape had seen something of a gamble, being backed in from 10/1 in to second favourite. He does have winning form on heavy ground but that was when gaining his last victory in December 2012. He was beaten by 52 lengths over course and distance on penultimate run and was pulled up last time out so would need to show vast improvement to get involved. Sea The Springs is yet to race on heavy ground and hasn’t shown much on soft ground either but has placed on a couple of occasions including one over today’s trip and could be an interesting runner with Richard Johnson booked to ride. UP FOUR IT (WIN)
