FGR – Best Of The Day
Shane Kelly earned his riding fee and more when nursing home Duchess Of Marmite at Chelmsford yesterday, as she’s a very awkward ride at the best of times, and she was returned at a very generous BSP of 3.9 (5-2 BOG).
Today’s shortlist is Surrey bound to a very soggy Lingfield Park, being…
Lingfield 1.00 Happy Diva
Lingfield 1.30 Halo Moon
Lingfield 2.30 Sirop De Menthe
Happy Diva shaped well when second last time out at Towcester (2m, good) on her first start for Kerry Lee. Had Midnight Silver behind that day, but how that form will translate around here over 2m3f on heavy going is anybodys guess.
Halo Moon has had his problems, but would of almost certainly have been involved in the finish over C&D had it not been for a mistake at the final fence last time. Is tried in first time cheek pieces here in an attempt to sharpen him up for today’s race.
Sirop De Menthe is a horse I like. Ran way with a similar race at Huntingdon on Saturday, and acts on heavy ground. However he didn’t appear to get home over today’s trip at Wincanton in March and any stamina doubts will be exposed on today’s ground.
I’ve decided to weigh in with…
Lingfield 1.30 HALO MOON @ 9-4 BOG
…as he may of won here last time if it wasn’t for that mistake at the last.
