August 4 – Horses

... August 4 – Horses" />

Morning guys,

A decent start to August with a nice place at 18s and hoping to build on that today.

The selections:
August P/L ( +2.60 pts)

5:10 Lingfield
In the red 16/1 (365, 1/5 for 3 places) 1pt ew

I feel this is overpriced at 16s returning to AW. The horse has hosed up on his last two starts on the AW defying a 6lb penalty with ease on the last start. His last two starts have been on the turf with the latter at 8f which did not suit. He is returning to 7f today on the AW with Tom Marquand on board who was up on his last 2 AW wins and I expect him to go close off this higher mark as there could still be a lot to come given the nature of his last 2 wins. Even on the turf, he ran a close 4th beaten 1l at 7f showing he has the ability to defy this sort of mark. The trainer has a 10% SR at the course over the last 5 years.

Fancies:

2:45 Catterick – Armandihan 10/1 (365) 0.5pt win

5:35 Beverly – Amelia R 33/1 (BF, 1/5 for 3 places) 0.25pt ew

Points Staked – 3

I have linked the racing post race-card for each horse and it should direct you to the respective race should you click on the horse‚Äôs name if you would like to dive deeper into the form.

Good luck as always
