2.00 Lingfield. – Tippmanboy has been moved to Dr Richard Newland having run in three novice hurdles in Ireland, finishing in total 38 lengths behind the winners of those races. However, I think that there is a greater depth in Irish Novice Hurdles at that level and I look out for horses that come to the UK to race, having shown promise across the Irish Sea. I did back it for a place at just over 6/4 early this morning, but a non runner has reduced the value unfortunately. I have now backed it 1point win and three points place. It does have to prove it’s stamina as it is going up in trip, but has has run okay in testing conditions so I am hoping it handles the Lingfield gluepot which is what it will be unless we get rain today. I am also hoping Dr Newland will have eked out some improvement. This is an interesting race as a few of these are capable of winning over hurdles I feel.
