Lingfield stage seven races on their Tuesday card, and Alan Dudman is looking at two of them with his latest selections on the all-weather...

"He's the sort of horse that needs to be switched off to be delivered late, and he's not been running too badly this winter with a couple of good efforts behind the "win machine" Spare Parts."

Back Rising Sunshine @ [4.50] in the 17:00 at Lingfield

Let's go for Sandfrankskipsgo

14:00 Lingfield - Back Sandfrankskipsgo @ [11.0]

Peter Crate trained a bit of a favourite of mine in Picansort, and I am hoping the yard can strike with Sandfrankskipsgo over 5f.

The obvious starting point with the veteran is a career low mark, and considering he was priced at 9/1 on the Sportsbook last night, he looks worth an interest.

He's had three runs back this winter, and he's been a little bit unlucky in two of them over course and distance back in December. He was too wide in one, and the other behind Roundabout Magic, he was a little short of room. But that's Lingfield, as it's a track where you often need a break.

I can forgive his latest effort in an apprentice race at Chelmsford, as you can often put a line through a run at that Essex venue.

Crate's sprinter might need 6f these days as he can get a little outpaced, so Ask The Guru is an important horse here to make the running. From a rating of 60 and down in grade, he can go well.


Rising can be a ray of sunshine for Raybould

17:00 Lingfield - Back Rising Sunshine @ [4.50]

With plenty of small field races on the card, we'll have a go at the Apprentice Handicap at 17:00.

Jockey Kerrie Raybould seems to get on well with tricky horses with her handful of winners to date, and I am hoping she can earn another on Tuesday. She delivered the notoriously difficult Indian Affair to win at Wolverhampton recently - and he's a horse who really needs to time his challenge to perfection.

Raybould also excelled when scoring on Rising Sunshine over Lingfield's 7f in January - and the two can combine for another success over a furlong extra today.

He's the sort of horse that needs to be switched off to be delivered late, and he's not been running too badly this winter with a couple of good efforts behind the "win machine" Spare Parts. In fact he travelled quite well in one of those, and for such a lowly-rated runner, he might travel better than his mark of 48.
