Head Space and Baker a tasty punt at 8s

Head Space looks worth siding with at 8/1 in the 2.15 at Lingfield today now reunited with George Baker.

Baker was onboard when the gelding was last successful at Kempton four starts back when he came from off the pace under a well-judged ride to beat Ashkari by 1 1/2 lengths off a mark of 75.

Michael Attwater’s gelding was then not at his best next time up on the Tapeta surface at Wolverhampton but has run well in his last two starts at Kempton and remains in good form.

In the first of those he went down by just 1/2 a length when running on well to finish third of 10 to Diamond Charlie, and the six-year-old backed that up with a solid fourth of 10 to Strategic Force last week.

Both those tuns came off his current mark of 79, and showed that he could be really competitive off it.

It looks significant that connections are now putting Baker back onboard for the first time since the pair were last successful, and his riding style suits Head Space down to the ground.

This race should also be run to suit, and everything points to a huge run.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Head Space (8/1 BetVictor, Coral – BOG)
