JohnB’s Tuesday tips
Whiskey Chaser 6-1 Coral
Understory & Medicean Melody 48-1 Bet365
Understory, Medicean Melody & Whiskey Chaser
“It was pretty easy to pick this horse as my nap for several reasons. George Baker is back onboard and he is the man you want riding a horse like this in a race like this and at a course like Lingfield.
“Lingfield has a downhill bend into the home straight and this is where some jockeys kick to get an advantage. Understory is a horse that likes to be up with the pace or even make the pace and on Tuesday we have a 12 runner race with no other natural frontrunners.
“Understory is also a three-time course and distance winner who is in form running well the last two runs. Two runs ago Understory with George Baker on was second, beaten a neck by Time Square, and last time out he was a good fifth to Sabre Rock.
“I expect George Baker to make the pace in this race kicking off the last bend and not getting caught, or that’s how the race should be run.”
Medicean Melody (NB)
“Remember the name, not the horse but the jockey Milly Naseb because she is going places and is the best natural female jockey I have seen since Kirsty Milczarek. Seven career rides with two winners, a second and a third.
“On to the horse which is rated a lowly 49 and she is far too good to be rated that low. Decent third last time, beaten by Smugglers Lane, should easily reverse placings this time and this race is hers for the taking.”
“Only the third chase start so still improving. Last run was decent over a distance that was too short. Also down to a handicap mark that this horse should be able to win from and ground will suit.
“Decent chance in a weak race with the only real danger looking to be Colms Dream. This tip is based more on the horse’s likely improvement than what the horse has already done but saying that the form isn’t as bad as it first looks and I would be surprised if it wasn’t in the first two.”
