Two flat cards on Wednesday at Lingfield & Kempton ,no real interest at Kempton's evening card which features seven very competitive looking handicaps.For the first bet of the week,I'm going concentrate on the 7f claiming stakes at Lingfield
7F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 LINGFIELD 1.20
RUBENSTAR : Four time C&D winner at Lingfield , in great form winning twice in 5 days earlier this month .Won handicap over C&D at Lingfield beating Lord Deevert by 1.5 lenghs,followed that win by winning 7f handicap at Wolverhampton beating Saddlers Charm by head,did well to win that day after getting hampered at start .Should go well with ideal conditions.
VERDICT : I CONFESS looks the main danger, goes well here at Lingfield winning 4 times ,though not the easiest horse to win with only 1 win from last 30 starts.
RUBENSTAR has excellent record over course & distance (4 wins from 7 starts in handicaps ) takes drop into claiming company and looks well treated off 8 stone 1lb.3-1 or bigger looks value !!
RUBENSTAR 1.20 LINGFIELD
£100 WIN @ 3.90 BETFAIR
£100 PLACE @ 1.58 BETFAIR
Two early morning non runners ,Phytheas & Jack Olantern,just over 11-4 with betfair still looks very fair price and they are still paying three places on the place market.
