ALAN is napping Albert Finney at Lingfield on Friday and also has a Newcastle selection.
At Lingfield, ALBERT FINNEY is a bit of value to beat Johnston’s warm favourite Lord Lamington, a wide-margin winner over a longer trip at Newcastle last time.
John Gosden’s Albert Finney couldn’t cope with Johnston’s Caplin, a winner yesterday, at Wolverhampton but is weighted to beat Lord Lamington on a formline through Thunderoad.
THAAYER came clear of Matterhorn at Newcastle at the end of November on his first start for Rebecca Menzies since leaving Owen Burrows and an action replay is very much on the cards back at Gosforth park this evening.
His initial handicap mark of 81 looks fairly lenient when you consider Matterhorn has since reeled off five straight victories for Mark Johnston.
