Lingfield Racing Tips: Protest can Rally home

Andrew Asquith outlines the Timeform view at Lingfield on Thursday

"...he is expected to bounce back returned to the all-weather and moving back up to seven furlongs..."

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Lingfield on Thursday.

NAP

Lingfield - 20:00 - Back Protest Rally

Protest Rally improved further when opening his account on handicap over six furlongs at Southwell last month, and he ran well considering he was hampered by an errant rival at the start and still looked green under pressure at Nottingham last time. He was also caught wide which wasn't ideal and he remains a horse who should have more to offer, so he is expected to bounce back returned to the all-weather and moving back up to seven furlongs.


NEXT BEST

Lingfield - 20:30 - Back Royal Athena

Royal Athena produced a big career best when opening her account over course and distance 10 days ago, helped by getting a clear run through on the inside but also proving well suited by a step up to a mile and a half. She was always holding on form the unexposed, odds-on favourite who has won since, and she will be hard to beat turned out under a penalty on that evidence.
