Best bet for the horse racing Tuesday 25th February
It’s another day of abandonment's on Tuesday with Leicester a write-off and Catterick inspecting having been under snow at the weekend. The BHA have added some extra Jumps cards to the fixture list on Wednesday at Market Rasen and Thursday up at Musselburgh; hopefully they will survive the weather.
It could be all about Lingfield Park on Tuesday and I do fancy one there in the 6f Ladbrokes Where The Nation Plays Handicap at 4.00. Irish raider Dark Vader will be the jolly off the back of a nice win at Dundalk but, and it is a big but, stall 5 does not help his chances. I am taking him on with the filly Auchterarder. She has some good form to her name in a short four race career and was unlucky not to make it three wins from four when clipping heels and stumbling at Wolverhampton; still got third! I think she can lead here and hold off all challengers. I have the 5-2 that was about overnight.
