ITV Racing Tips - Friday 2nd April

Race 1 - Marathon Championships Tips


RAINBOW DREAMER brings the two best pieces of form into the Marathon Final, having gone down by a head to Mildenberger, before holding off Ocean Wind and Prince Of Arran to win at Kempton. Favourites have a very strong record in this race, and Alan King's eight-year-old is hard to oppose.

Race 2 - Bombardier Handicap Tips


TIPPERARY JACK was backed into favouritism on his return at Kempton two weeks ago, but was too fresh and didn't finish off his race. John Best's charge has now dropped to a rating one pounds below his last winning mark, and first-time blinkers could help settle him down in the early stages.

Race 3 - All-Weather Fillies' And Mares' Tips

Fizzy Feet could try to make all from stall three and poses the biggest danger to INDIE ANGEL. However, John Gosden's four-year-old is a previous course winner and, unlike Fizzy Feet, has won over this distance. Martin Harley's mount rounded off last season with a fine Listed victory here at Lingfield, and should live up her billing.

Race 4 - Betway Handicap Tips


Spartan Fighter E/W2:50pm Newcastle Betway Handicap (Class 4) 6fGET 20/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

He may be the outsider of the nine, but I think there's value to be found backing SPARTAN FIGHTER each-way. Anthony Brittain's four-year-old made all from a wide draw to win over course-and-distance in January. After four defeats, he's now dropped back to a winnable mark, and could make a bold bid for the places from stall eight. 

Race 5 - Sprint Championships Tips


Lampang E/W3:10pm Lingfield Betway All-Weather Sprint Championships Conditions Stakes (Class 2) 6fGET 8/1 HERE
+18 only. Gamble Responsibly. Ts and Cs apply. Ladbrokes is operated by LC International Limited (Suite 6, Atlantic Suites, Gibraltar) and licensed (ref 54743) and regulated by the British Gambling Commission for persons gambling in Great Britain. For persons gambling outside Great Britain, Ladbrokes is licensed (ref 010, 012) by the Government of Gibraltar and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

I fancy an each-way punt on LAMPANG, who recovered well from a stumbling start to finish second in a handicap over five furlongs last time out. Tim Easterby's charge is much more effective over this longer distance, and placed second behind Good Effort in the Golden Rose Stakes here at Lingfield in November. Silvestre De Sousa should be able to find a nice position from stall 10.

Race 6 - Burradon Stakes Tips


2000 Guineas entrant Megallan should come on for his return run over seven furlongs at Lingfield, and John Gosden's three-year-old dominates the betting. I'd rather take him on with LEGION OF HONOUR, who looks a lovely prospect for Roger Varian to have fun with this season. 

The Wootton Bassett colt ran a screamer to place second behind Devious Company on debut. James Doyle then needed just hands and heels to push Legion Of Honour to victory here at Newcastle, where he beat two future winners by two lengths. This step up in trip will suit and he's sure to have strengthened between two and three. He could give the favourite a run for his money.

Race 7 - 3 Year Old Championships Tips


Mighty Gurkha3:45pm Lingfield Ladbrokes 3 Year Old All-Weather Championships Conditions Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Class 2) 6fGET 7/2 HERE

Favourites have won all three editions of the 3YO Final, so Diligent Harry has to be respected. He does, however, have ten pounds to find on MIGHTY GURKHA, who's been drawn kindly out in stall seven.

Archie Watson's star lost out by a nose to Victory Heights when giving his rival seven pounds. Zamani then looked to have gotten the better of Mighty Gurkha, only for Hollie Doyle's mount to fight back and claim victory in the final strides. If he starts well and grabs hold of the pace, then Mighty Gurkha will be hard to peg back.

Race 8 -  Ladbrokes Handicap Tips


Defined4:00pm Newcastle Ladbrokes "Play 1-2-Free" On Football Handicap (Class 4) 1m4fGET 5/2 HERE

For persons gambling outside Great Britain, Ladbrokes is licensed (ref 010, 012) by the Government of Gibraltar and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

Glen Again got the better of DEFINED when they met at Chelmsford. Defined looked to be struggling turning in, but picked up late on to push Glen Again all the way to the line. John Gosden's colt is by a Derby and Arc winner in Golden Horn, and his dam-sire is Galileo, so I'm confident he will take kindly to this step up to 12-and-a-half furlongs.

Race 9 - Middle Distance Championships Tips


With just two places on offer, there's little point siding against the market leaders, and BANGKOK is the one who holds most appeal.

Bangkok picked off Forest Of Dean to win the Winter Derby Trial here at Lingfield, before going on to finish eighth of 14 in the Saudi Cup. Silvestre De Sousa's mount has had 40-days to recover from his globe-trotting exploits, and Bangkok can rubber-stamp the Winter Derby Trial form with his market rival.

Race 10 - Mile Championships Tips


With plenty of pace around him, I'm hoping BLESS HIM will be given a Jamie Spencer special. 

Spencer guided Bless Him to a cosy victory at Newcastle on his final start on British soil. Since then, David Simcock's seven-year-old has started three times out in Meydan, staying on to finish less than two lengths behind the winner in a Grade Two last time out.

Stall eight is perfect for Spencer to execute his fast-finishing tactics, and Bless Him offers plenty of each-way appeal at his current price.
