Sweetspots: Bertie Blu Boy and Lundie look likely Lingfield lads
Simon Walker has ridden six winners from 13 rides at Lingfield, an impressive strike-rate of 46 per cent. His only ride of the day is on Hallingham in the 5.25. The drop back to 1m2f can help him improve on his fifth at this track last time out.
Bertie Blu Boy, a five-time course-and-distance winner goes in the 2.20 at Lingfield. When running off an official rating of 58 or less at the track his form figures read 11112731, with today’s jockey Kevin Lundie on board for two of those wins. The ten-year-old hasn’t shown much of late but he can roll back the years today.
Planetoid looks up against it in the 3.25 at Lingfield after a 527-day absence. However, he has a good record when fresh and has won four of his nine starts at the track. He had some smart form over staying trips when last seen and if he can replicate that as a ten-year-old he should outrun his odds.
