Lingfield Tips: Picansort

Lingfield Tips: Picansort

Finished behind Mossgo last time but undone by steady early pace. Ran rapid 21.74s sectional in defeat.

Peter Crate is double handed in the 4.55 Lingfield but of his two veterans I prefer the chances of Picansort. His record over 5f at Lingfield is outstanding, winning 7/25 races at class 4 level or lower. Last time out he finished a length behind Mossgo and he can turn around the placings with a 4lbs pull and different pace scenario.

Mossgo benefited from racing close to a moderate early gallop, meanwhile Picansort was disadvantaged by having to come from much further behind. In the end, he ran a rapid 21.74s closing sectional, the fastest in the race but it wasn’t enough to bridge the gap.

After adjusting for pace, Picansort came out best on the day with a speed rating of 76. He is running better than his current handicap mark and with Powerful Wind liable to set up the race for a closer, he can win again at his favourite track.
