Hot pair of Lingfield lovelies

Frank looks Super at 14/1

Super Frank had dropped to a career low mark and looks worth chancing at 14/1 in the 2.40 at Lingfield today.

The eight-year-old has been a multiple all-weather winner over the years, but hasn’t scored since scoring over course and distance here last December.

However that win came off a mark of 59 and he is now down to his lowest ever rating of just 50.

That gives him a tremendous chance from a handicap perspective if he can bounce back to form, and he signalled two starts ago that he still retains enough ability to win a race of this nature.

That run came over 7f and he showed good early pace to track the leaders before weakening a furlong from home.

Although eventually finishing 8th of 13 to Bold Ring he was only beaten three lengths and ran far better than his finishing position suggests.

The drop back down to 6f today will be absolutely ideal, and if allowed his own way up front he could take some pegging back.

The gelding did blot his copybook last time out when moody at the stalls and virtually refusing to race, but I am prepared to forgive him that effort now that he is back on one of his favourite stomping grounds.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Super Frank (14/1 Ladbrokes – BOG)

 

8/1 Rodrigo handicapped to score

Rodrigo De Freitas narrowly failed to land a gamble for us last time out and looks value at 8/1 to make amends in the 3.15 at Lingfield today.

Jim Boyle’s gelding was brought with a lovely run from off the pace to lead over course and distance 12 days ago but got collared by the fast finishing Ninfea in the shadows of the post and got beat a neck.

However that effort showed that he was ready to take advantage of his reduced handicap mark, and despite being put up 2lb for it he is still 1lb lower than when registering the only success of his career at Windsor last October.

That gives him every chance in this line-up, and with Daniel Cremin taking off another 7lb he looks very nicely treated indeed if building on his latest effort.

He is certainly not the easiest horse to win with however – as his one win in 27 starts indicates – but if everything does drop right he must take all the beating.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Rodrigo De Freitas (8/1 bet365 – BOG)
