Lingfield Tips: Burning Thread
Ignore his last run when carrying top weight over the wrong trip. This more his thing and not beaten far by Verne Castle two starts back.
Racecourse: National Hunt & Flat
Features: Has three left handed race tracks: flat all-weather and turf courses plus a jumps track. All three are considered sharp tracks. Lingfield also has a straight downhill chute on the turf course used for five, six and seven furlong races.
Draw Bias: The flat turf course has a strong bias for races ranging from five to seven furlongs. The stand’s rail has a ‘golden highway’ giving horses with a high draw a big advantage.
Pace Bias: Prominent runners are advantaged on the turf course, but hold-up horses can hold their own on the all-weather track.
Top Trainers: Charlie Appleby has an amazing 35% strike rate on the all-weather track and although his runners have a high profile he is still turning out a profit of £23.99.
Top Jockeys: Adam Kirby has a terrific 21% strike rate on the all-weather and shows a £74.27 profit on his rides.
