Our resident tipster has analysed Thursday's racing and has a sole selection at Market Rasen...

  • Likely strong pace to suit

  • Jumping can sharpen up

  • Notnowlinda is overpriced at Market Rasen


Market Rasen - 15:58 - Back Notnowlinda

Plenty in this handicap hurdle often lead or race very prominently and that could result in a strong pace which would suit Notnowlinda.

I thought she won with more in hand than the margin suggested when winning at Hereford three starts ago and that test looked sharper than ideal for her. She followed that with a good run in defeat at Cheltenham considering her jumping wasn't always fluent and she wasn't too well positioned given the pace.

It was a similar story on her latest start at Hereford when Notnowlinda finished second to last time out winner Big Blue Moon. There is a concern that her jumping might be put under too much pressure today but the pace is likely to be more suitable for her than she's had in her last two starts and that will give her a better chance to close late and pick off those that have raced prominently. Any 5/23.50 or bigger appeals.
