Top class flat racing takes place at Lingfield this afternoon, all-weather champions day with cracking prize money on offer.
Newcastle on the aw and Bath also hold flat meetings with good money on offer. Why we have these 3 fixtures all on the same day I have no idea. It’s bad race planning by the powers that be.
Starting at Bath in the 4:00. Muthmir will take plenty of beating if fit and ready to go. Backing him at odds of 6-5 could be risky though as the horse normally needs he’s first start of the season, not easy to get fit apparently. Muthmir is 0-4 on seasonal reappearance but is class horse in the race. If anybody knows if Muthmir is fit please let me know!
William Haggas could have a big race double with Muthmir & Muffri’Ha.Muffri’Ha runs in the 2:40 at Lingfield.
Muffri’Ha has been running in Dubai of late and finished 3rd three times in better races than this. The drop back in trip should be ok and he’s the one to beat. The price of 6-4 looks fair.
We’ll find out late on how good Ennaadd trained by Roger Varian is, takes his chance in the 3:40. Un-beaten in 4 starts Ennaadd looks smart, he’ll have to be though to win this without a prep run.
William Haggas 3 timer? Second Thought looks the one to beat in the the six-furlong sprint at 4:10. Jockey, Robert Winston has a knack of dropping his head in front on the line.
Have a great Easter.
