Today’s top selections from the press and media feature a pair of runners each from this afternoons cards at Lingfield and Fakenham, with the quintet finished off by a runner at Southwell. So check out the top five most popular newspaper tips below, along with the best odds available.
1: ESTRELA STAR (2:00pm Lingfield) (3 Votes)
Won impressively by 6 lengths at Chelmsford last time out over 1m 6f, which followed on from a 3 length victory at Kempton over 2m. Goes in as odds on favourite despite a double penalty today. Still the one to beat.

2: SENIOR CITIZEN (3:20pm Fakenham) (3 Votes)
Former winner over hurdles, made a strong chase debut at Doncaster last time out, finishing second to The Big Bite by 3.5 lengths. Comes in to this handicap debut at a fair weight and with decent, if unspectacular opponents around him, can grab a first chase victory.

3: PHUKET POWER (3:10pm Lingfield) (2 Votes)
Looks to have really taken to polytrack, with a record of 122 in three starts so far on this surface. Win came in December at Kempton, while his last run brought the second place over today’s course and distance. Rises just 3lbs which should not be a massive factor. Big chance this afternoon.

4: PENNY MALLOW (3:50pm Fakenham) (2 Votes)
Three wins and a second in five career starts so far, picking up wins at Plumpton in November and Wetherby in January. Finished second in most recent outing at Carlisle at the turn of the month, missing out by a neck in a novice hurdle. Expected to go well on handicap debut and arguably the one to beat.

5: SANDRIDGE LAD (6:45pm Southwell) (2 Votes)
Four wins from eight starts at this venue, including last two outings at the end of January and a week ago. Despite penalties, still looks under rated and should justify strong odds on price.
