I had a bet on the All-Weather up at Wolverhampton on Tuesday, King Of Conquest getting up late to win (I hope you had the early price with Hills) and I am sticking to the synthetic surfaces for Wednesday; sorry Jumps fans but I simply didn’t fancy anything at Haydock or Ludlow.
Best bet for the horse racing at Lingfield Park
The 1m2f etUK's ACCA Club 5 Free Bet Handicap at 2.25 is the race of interest to me in Surrey. Greatgadian has run okay without winning in some big-money handicaps over the summer but is very much of interest back on Polytrack. He is unbeaten in three starts on synthetics with a win on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton over a mile and two Polytrack victories at Chelmsford City over 1m2f. This would require a career best but I think the four-year-old gelding can do it back on his favourite surface. I am on at 4-1 overnight.
Best bet for the horse racing at Kempton Park
The 7.50 1m4f Listed Unibet Wild Flower Stakes looks to be at the mercy of Charlie Appleby with the master of Moulton Paddocks supplying the top and bottom weight. Siskany has an obvious chance, was even tried in G.1 company last time, but is too short for me and under race conditions has 9-11 to carry. The gelding is consistent if not spectacular and I think might struggle to give the field weight. Stablemate Wild Crusade is one I have talked of before as well and getting 8lb off the jolly I think the three-year-old is the old to be on at 11-4 overnight. He lost little in defeat when beaten half a length by another stablemate in the shape of Warren Point over this C&D last month and there might be more to come from him yet this winter; has won over the track and trip twice at a lower level in the past. James Doyle rides with Buick on the jolly.
FYI Appleby runs two at Lingfield earlier in the day, but Reflective Star hasn’t shown that much on two starts so is best watched as is Reflective Star on debut.
