Tip of the Day: My sweet Lord

After tipping a non runner, Ben Linfoot tries for the second and last time with a selection at Kempton this evening.

Gary Moore: Could have another winner at Kempton


Inevitably Mrs Burbidge is a non runner. I'm a weak man, and I couldn't resist taking the opportunity to tip the same horse two days running in two different codes. In my line of work, opportunities like that don't come along very often.

However, her withdrawal means some funds are back in the account and I'll be placing them on an each-way bet at Kempton this evening with Gary Moore's LORD CLENAGHCASTLE making plenty of appeal at 10/1 in the 6.25.

This is a hot race on paper, but the market leaders are all drawn out wide and that could give the selection, drawn in one, a bit of an advantage when it comes to track position.

Regardless of that, he's a big price at 10/1 anyway.

A winner of his first two starts, the second of those came at Kempton over seven furlongs where he stayed on nicely to win a nursery off a mark of 65. That was the best part of three months ago and he could've improved plenty since.

The form of that race looks okay, too. The second, Tennessee Rose, has run well in second off a similar mark at Wolverhampton since, while the third, Glenys The Menace, won here at Kempton off the same mark two weeks' later.

Considering the ease of Lord Clenaghcastle's Kempton win, and those form boosts, a 7lb higher mark this evening looks within his range.

Perhaps he's a big price because he was beaten in third off 73 at Brighton last time. He wasn't ideally placed that day, though, and he stayed on nicely enough, certainly suggesting he remains in good heart.

Back at Kempton, with a nice inside draw, he's worth backing at the prices to get one over the better-fancied horses drawn out wide.
