Horse Racing Tips: Rhys Williams' NAP is an outsider on second start at Lingfield

Our racing expert has one selection on Wednesday

After a narrow miss with yesterday's 16/1 NAP, Rhys Williams returns today with another big-priced selection at Lingfield.

"Giselles Izzy’s inexperience cost her any chance of being competitive from the off."

Very slow start gave her no chance on debut

Lingfield 13:35: Giselles Izzy 0.5pt win 33/1

Giselles Izzy finished nine lengths behind Income on debut at Chelmsford but she showed more promise than the margin beaten suggests and could take a significant step forward today.

She was slowly away and soon detached off the back of the field but was given time to find her stride and not rushed forward. She showed a little greenness just before leaving the back straight and briefly niggled along which she responded to and gained a position entering the turn. She was still in second last and pushed along with just over two furlongs to go and entered the home straight about seven wide. She couldn't get anywhere near the leaders in the straight but did finish off well to be in sixth crossing the line.

Giselles Izzy's inexperience cost her any chance of being competitive from the off but the way that she finished off the race suggests that she has some ability and if she doesn't repeat those slow starting antics again today then she has the potential to take a big step forward from that run.

There is a chance that she will still be green and the application of a hood is a bit surprising as she didn't show any signs of needing one on debut but I think her chance of continuing her trainers' excellent start to the year has been overlooked a little and any 25/1 or bigger appeals.
