THE weather continues to wreak havoc on racing all across the country. My tip for Friday was a non-runner but hopefully some of you managed to get on the replacement tip, Swashbuckle, who won nicely at 5-2.
No jumps racing on Saturday but hopefully the racing at Lingfield on the all-weather will survive and although it’s not ideal I have a couple of a decent prospects that we can get involved with.
Quite a few runners here so hopefully most of them stand their ground and we get a good each way race.
ATTAIN is a course and distance winner and is only 3lb higher than he was for that win in January. Archie Watson has a cracking strike rate at the moment and I think it could pay to side with him here.
A good quality listed race in prospect and I’m keen to side with one who has rock solid form in the book. HEADWAY was 2nd in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and 3rd in the Gimcrack at York in the summer both of which were great pieces of form and bettter than anything else on show here. Assuming he is ok on the all weather here he could make the current prices look a bit silly.
