Two lovelies for Lingfield


Amitola a solid bet at 4s

Amitola rates a solid bet at 4/1 to follow up his recent course and distance win in the 2.10 at Lingfield today.

David Barrons’ filly made all and pulled clear in the closing stages to beat Novellen Lad with far more in hand than the winning margin of 1 1/4 lengths suggests off a mark of 82 and a 3lb rise looks extremely lenient and is unlikely to stop her going in again.

The daughter is now on the same mark as when beating Midnight Martini in a very competitive Newmarket handicap back in September 2010, and went on to finish a cracking third (beaten just a length) to the classy Dever Dream in a listed contest at headquarters.

That makes her still look very well weighted on her current mark of 85, and with Jamie Spencer in the saddle and a good draw in stall 5 she must take all the beating.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 4pts win Amitola (4/1 generally available – use BOG firms)


4/1 Prince ready to rule again

Kiss A Prince has plummeted in the weights and having signalled as if coming back to his best makes plenty of appeal at 4/1 to take advantage in the 2.40 at Lingfield.

Dean Ivory’s gelding is now 7lb below his last winn9ing mark and put in an eye-catching effort last time out when fourth of 9 to Appeal at this track over 1m 5f.

Steadied at the start that day he found himself short of room in the early stages buit made good headway to have every chance a furlong from home before being unable to find any extra approaching the last.

That was a most encouraging run after a spell in the doldrums, and the drop back in trip to 1m 2f looks sure to suit.

Other pluses are that all of his five career victories have come at this track, and that his jockey Shane Kelly has a 23.53% strike rate in the last 12 months when teaming up with the yard (£31.75 profit to a £ level stake).

Everything looks in place for a huge run, and at 4/1 with Ladbrokes he’s the one they all have to beat.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 4pts win Kiss A Prince (4/1 Ladbrokes – BOG)
