Lingfield best bets: Watch out for Ten O’Clock surprise as So Obsessed set to dominate

There’s a full day of racing to enjoy across the UK and Ireland on Thursday, and Lingfield appear to have saved one of the most competitive handicaps until the last race on their afternoon card.

At the top end of the market, it’s hard to oppose the firm early favourite, So Obsessed, who enjoyed two all-weather wins earlier in the spring before coming a narrow second-best to well-backed improver It’s Showtime on his season turf debut over this course and distance a fortnight ago.

The booking of Oisin Murphy would appear to slip an additional ace up his sleeve here, and closest market rivals Milliethemollie and Musical Diva might just huff and puff to no avail here, despite their own promising recent showings.

For anyone looking for outsider interest, the top-heavy market has created some enhanced value deeper in the betting that has caught the collective eye of Tipstrr’s each-way specialists.

Attracting the most attention is the bottom-weighted lightly-raced filly Ten O’clock, who appears to have done little at first glance to merit such support, but who might be ready to show her mettle at this level since a recent change of scenery.

Eight winless outings for Jamie Osborne yielded a best effort of runner-up of seven on this venue’s all-weather track in February, but a two-month break and a move to Grace Harris’ yard might prove to be the making of this under-achieving three-year-old.

Her stable debut two weeks ago brought a much more promising effort, and although having to settle for fourth place out of ten starters, she was only a couple of lengths adrift of reopposing fancy So Obsessed, despite being poorly placed down the stretch.

That was Kieran O’Neill’s first time aboard, so between them they should be better equipped this time around, not to mention that the same jockey steered a 40/1 outsider into the winner’s enclosure at Leicester just two days ago.

She might need a couple of the principals to falter here, but given a clear run, Ten O’clock might well build on her last effort to put herself in frame contention.
