BATTLE OF MARATHON (3.20) became something of a Lingfield specialist last winter when clocking up three victories and he is back for more in the 1m 7f handicap.

That hat-trick came over 1m 4f but his stamina kicked in over 1m 6f at Chelmsford City six days ago when running down hot favourite Australis. Battle Of Marathon is at his best when sitting off a strong gallop and classy stayer Rochester House goes from the front, so a decent gallop seems assured.

YES MY BOY (12.00) faces a High Noon re-match with Furzig in the 1m 2f handicap. He finished a neck behind that rival when they were second and third respectively at Wolverhampton last month and finds himself 5lb worse off after picking up a penalty for scoring here last Wednesday.

Yes My Boy briefly looked in trouble three out last week, but responded gamely to Hollie Doyle's urging to pull almost three lengths clear of Plantadream. He could get another easy lead here, with chief market rival Make It Rain liable to be held up, and Yes My Boy runs Lingfield well. Furzig could manage only sixth in this race 12 months ago, but cannot be dismissed.

GUMRA (2.45) bids to complete a four-timer and will take some stopping under Adam Kirby. She is a fast-improving filly and made light work of a very wide draw when bolting up at Chelmsford City nine days ago. A 6lb penalty clearly makes things tougher but Gumra should be followed until beaten.

    From Tuesday’s Racing Thread…

    **PLEASE READ THIS**

    This is the first and final warning on this racing thread.

    Quite frankly we’ve enough to be contending with at this moment given the situation with MrFixit’s health without having to deal with the children on this thread.

    The bickering, bitching and back-stabbing has to stop. Today.

    Sending us disgustingly abusive emails because you have been blocked is not the way to get yourself unblocked. Ever.

    Everyone of you that has multiple accounts needs choose one today and delete the others, otherwise we’ll expose every one of you and delete all your accounts. Consider this a 24-hour amnesty.

    The last thing we want to do is close comments on this thread as there are genuinely some brilliant, patient and knowledgeable people here who are happy to use this forum as a place to share bets and their love of racing.

    You are all grown-ups, start behaving like it or leave the site for good.

    Followed this site for a few years now but very rarely comment maybe three times in all. When I first came to the site was when mrfixit was the main horse racing tipster and he was on fire! Don’t know what’s happened too him but I hope he has a speedy recovery as health is more important than anything!

      Some jockey is holly Doyle, bold move to take up the running after missing the start. I doubled it up with mystical air for a nice little winner

    • recoba 5 months ago

      Yeah I’m the head bob.
      Got in a double with Bushypark which I also took the special on Skybet to win by 6l or more but BOTH results are still pending at 1pm?

    • gaz1105 5 months ago

      There seems be a delay on results, Betfair only just showing the 12.00 as a winner with mystical air still pending

    Question – I took skybet special of 10/3 for mystical air and ocean road to win, both drifted and went off at 13/8 – do skybet amend their boost accordingly or have I done myself out of 60 quid
