Bets of the Day: Godolphin colt to finally get the Message

I have an Important Message for a runner at Lingfield - its time to win!
I have an Important Message for a runner at Lingfield - its time to win!

Alan went close to hitting the double yesterday with the best bet of the day Shipyard winning at Musselburgh and the second selection trading at 1.251/4 in running but just failing to get up. Today it's Lingfield and Bath for the selections....


"He was staying on strongly at the finish and looks like he was crying out for further, that was over a mile and today he goes over 1m 4f"

15:20 Lingfield - Important Message @ 5/4 Sportsbook

Twice beaten at short prices it looks time for the Godolphin colt Important Message to break his maiden tag. He has looked more progressive on each outing and providing he can handle the surface at Lingfield then I think it will be third time lucky.

Last time out when he was beaten after being sent off the 1/3 favourite he was staying on strongly at the finish and looks like he was crying out for further, that was over a mile and today he goes over 1m 4f on the all weather at Lingfield.

I thought that Libbard was the main threat but that has now been withdrawn so Pure Line could be the only fly in the ointment but at 5/4 I am prepared to take the filly on, in what should be a match bet.


17:40 Bath - Harry Bosch @ 4.3100/30 Exchange

The five-year-old Harry Bosch has won three times from his 29 starts and on two of those occasions he has won at Bath over a mile on good and good to firm ground - the same conditions he finds today. Last year he won here off a mark of 77 but has been going down to the handicap pretty quickly since then and won here off 51 last time out.

To be fair none of these horses are going to live long in the memory and it's a pretty low class affair but trading at around 4.3100/30 on the exchange, that seems a fair price for this selection who has at least winning form on the course and over the trip.
