Lingfield best bet: Landlordtothestars ready to serve up another bold bid

Our friends at Tipstrr landed us a couple of tasty 7/2 winners on Wednesday, so we're looking for more of the same from Thursday's action, kicking off with this competitive handicap at Lingfield.

Heading the early betting, Francesi is the only starter to have already tasted success over this course and distance, although it is two years and 16 outings since he last frequented the winner’s enclosure.

He showed signs of a return to form when second of 10 at Southwell a fortnight ago, but his protracted losing streak must give hope to the likes of Cosmos Raj, who arrives here looking to complete a hat-trick under Danny Tudhope after enjoying back-to-back wins at Wolverhampton in February and March.

Looking deeper in the market, Overnight Oats could be interesting as he makes his season, polytrack and season debuts all at once after a six-month break, with his chances enhanced by the significant booking of Rossa Ryan at the helm, while Hollie Doyle reunites with Desfondado a month after steering the four-year-old within a neck of landing a 22/1 upset at Kempton two outings ago.

Our final nod, however, goes to the James Evans-trained Landlordtothestars, who is in the midst of an impressive campaign and looks to be a progressive type with plenty of scope for further improvement.

Since December the four-year-old has landed figures of 13124 at various all-weather venues, including a close-up second over this course and distance two appearances ago in January.

Even in those three losses he was always well in the mix, twice going down by just a neck, while his largest margin of defeat was half a length when fourth of nine last time out ten weeks ago at Wolverhampton.

He is now six pounds higher than his last winning mark, but his climbing weights have been absorbed effectively by the booking of useful claimer Joe Leavy, whose five-pound allowance should boost his chances of competing with this higher-quality company.

Trainer Evans does not send too many of his string to the Lingfield track, but has tasted plenty of success here when he has done so, with 18 of his last 37 starters here making the frame, including 11 victors for an impressive 30% win rate.
