BetVictor ambassador Nicola Currie has been spending plenty of time at Lingfield recently and she guides us through her six rides today before giving us the lowdown on Brains tomorrow at Haydock.
Mr Beau Blue
Lingfield (Monday, 17.20)
My rides start with Mr Beau Blue for Jamie Osborne. He’s having his first start in the 7f novice stakes.
He’s a Brazen Beau 3yr old who has shown us some ability at home and should come on leaps and bounds from a run on the track.
Lingfield (Monday, 17.50)
Firenze Rosa in the 17.50 is my next ride for John Bridger. She is a filly I have ridden before and runs over five furlongs today.
Although this looks a competitive race, she is a very tough filly and isn’t carrying much weight compared to her rivals.
Lingfield (Monday, 18.20)
My third ride on the card is Good Earth for Jamie Osborne. He is having his first run of the season and has been unlucky up until now with many seconds next to his name.
He’s a tough little horse and deserves a win.
Lingfield (Monday, 19.20)
Archimento for David Menuisier runs over 1m4 0-85 handicap. It’s his first start for his new yard and first run this year.
He has been running over hurdles, so trip will not be an issue, and looks a consistent type.
Lingfield (Monday, 19.50)
My penultimate ride Tuesday is Hammy End for Willie Muir. Again, he is a consistent horse and the yard’s horses have been running well this season so far.
I won on this horse on the turf at Chepstow last year. He’s tough and will be doing his best work in the closing stages of the race.
Voice Of Calm
Lingfield (Monday, 20.20)
Voice Of Calm in the lucky last for Harry Dunlop will be my final ride Tuesday. I’ve not sat on this filly but she looks a lovely big type.
She’s unexposed and drops in class today, so I look forward to riding her in the closing handicap.
Haydock (Tuesday, 15.45)
Tuesday I will be at Haydock for just the one ride, an exciting one I am really looking forward to on the mighty Brains. He is looking for his fourth win in a row, having won five times already in his career.
He will step foot on turf for the first time in his career so there is a slight question mark about that but with the ground looking to be good to soft, I think that will suit him and his run style.
