Time: 15:35 Course: Lingfield
Name: Lock Out Advice: 1.0pt WIN (4/1 William Hill)
Form: 11433 Trainer: David Pipe Jockey: Tom Scudamore
Summary: This is a excellent chance for LOCK OUT to get into the winners enclosure again.
Takes a step up in trip here, which I believe should suit his running style more. I’m hoping the ground won’t be too testing as I think good-to-soft will be his optimum condition.
Both trainer and jockey have form over course and distance, and if Tom Scudamore can keep him up with the pace then he should give us a run for our money.
Time: 15:45 Course: Newcastle
Name: Budarri Advice: 0.5pt EW (14/1 Bet365)
Form: 74136 Trainer: W Coltherd Jockey: Danny McMenamin
Summary: Trainer, Stuart Coltherd, has two runners in this race and the one I’m siding with is BUDARRI.
He won’t be everyone’s choice, but he is now on a mark of 79 – having won over this distance in November off a rating of 75.
Danny McMenamin takes the ride again, having ridden him 4 from the last 5 times so should know him well. If Danny can get him jumping fluently, just behind the leaders and produce him late then I believe he could have a great chance of going close again.
He has also won over course and distance over recent years, and the ground conditions shouldn’t be a problem.
