SHOMOUKH – 11.50 Lingfield

Bang in-form Kevin Philippart De Foy has a seven from 23 record at the first time of asking with horses he takes over from other yards and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £16.55 to a £1 level stake at SP. SHOMOUKH, ex-Richard Fahey, is a bigger price than I expected in Lingfield’s opener and is worth an interest. He showed plenty of ability on left-handed tracks on his first two starts, finishing an 18-1 fourth of 12 at Thirsk despite running green before his 10-1 third at Chester. He failed to settle over the straight mile when a modest fourth of five at Newcastle last time and this track should suit better.

GIDWA & MY NAME’S HOWARD – 12.20 Lingfield

GIDWA is another horse to make the switch to Kevin De Foy’s yard. Ex-Ed Dunlop, he found 5f too short when keeping on into a 16-1 fifth of ten at Chelmsford last time and has the potential to start much shorter than the early 12-1. His two previous ‘switchers’ for these owners (Midlands Racing Club) won at 6-1 and finished third at 50-1.

However, one I’m more interested in at a daft price is MY NAME’S HOWARD. Trained by in-form Ron Harris, he was an eyecatcher in a Brighton maiden in October, despite finishing last of six. Sent off at 40-1, he traded much shorter after travelling strongly under a prominent ride but that effort, into a headwind and on the slowest part of the track (the centre), took its toll and he dropped away to finish last of six. He failed to last home over an extended mile on soft ground at Nottingham on his nursery debut but looks worth chancing at a silly price now back in trip on the all-weather. Hopefully, he won’t try to lead, as he’ll end up in the ‘swamp’ on the inside.

PRIME VENTURE – 2.50 Haydock

No prizes for guessing that I’m siding with a ten-year-old in a veterans’ handicap chase – the youngest age group eligible to take part. They outperform their older rivals and this race looks a great opportunity to make a few quid as the first four in the betting – Aso, Lake View Lad, Ami Desboi and Blaklion – are aged 11 or 12. The interesting one is undoubtedly PRIME VENTURE, whose record in November or December stands at 11217U2341 (4-10).
