2.40 Lingfield:

Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Generally, I’ll identify and share the selection in the evening before the following day’s race and I then add a detailed write-up later on that night/next morning.

Those happy to take the early price on trust can do so, whilst some might prefer to wait for my reasoning. As I fit the early service in around my family life, I can’t give an exact timing on the posts, so I suggest you follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for instant notifications of a published pick.

Ballista @ 7/2 BOG


This 8 yr old gelding is a former course and distance winner here and represents the in-form yard of Tom Dascombe, who have had three winners from their last seven runners (2 from 4 under today’s jockey Richard Kingscote).

  • 42/167 for 93.6pts under Richard Kingscote
  • 36/148 for 77.6pts over trips of 5 to 7 furlongs
