Alan Dudman had a winner and a third on Monday and is hoping he lands his double at Lingfield tonight with a pair of Tom Marquand rides...
"Lingfield could suit him coming off the final turn in a good position and he at least is unexposed from a mark of 69."
View Kondratiev as the winner
Leg 1: Back Kondratiev Wave @ 3/1 in the 18:30 at Lingfield
Another frustrating day yesterday with a winner and a third as we still chase our first double since Hexham.
Lingfied is the stop for the first and their best race on the evening card at 18:30. Kondratiev Wave goes well at the track and everything is in place for a good run tonight under Tom Marquand.
He's a horse with plenty of early speed and the majority of his career has raced over 6f and 7f. However, he's done quite well upped to 1m and won a course and distance race off 80 under Ray Dawson in May. He made the running on that occasion and with Marquand taking over, few at the moment are better than him when leading and dictating.
With a perfect inside draw in 2 and a mark that's still well below his best, he is the bet at 3/1.
Same again from Tom
Leg 2: Back Smooth Spirit @ 2/1 in the 19:00 at Lingfield
No prizes for originality today and we are playing towards the top end of the market again with another Marquand mount in Smooth Spirit.
He can be backed at 2/1 and the case for him is simple in a race where the whole field can be given a chance. His two best runs have both come on the AW at Wolverhampton and ran well at the track last time out under a forward ride in a steadily run race.
Lingfield could suit him coming off the final turn in a good position and he at least is unexposed from a mark of 69.
