Picks From The Paddock Best Bet – Monday 10th December
After 8 winners including easy wins for both the NAP and Next Best, the Picks From The Paddock are back to try and get your week off to a flier!
Best Bet Of The Day
Trainer Tom Lacey has been in excellent form in recent weeks, posting four wins from his last ten runners, and also has a fantastic strike rate when he has the champion jockey Richard Johnson in the saddle. They team up with He's A Goer who returns to a left-handed track following a disappointing run when pulled up at Hereford last time out. His only career win came on good ground but it was over this trip and he has experienced testing conditions in bumpers last season so would be no surprise to see an improved run here.
That said, Gary Moore has trained the winner of this race for the last two years and sends last years' winner Clayton in a bid to win it again. He hasn't been seen since finishing second over course and distance in January but does have a good record when fresh and will likely have been primed for this race so he has to be the selection to bring up the hat-trick for his trainer.
Clayton (WIN) – NAP
Paul Henderson has sent four chasers to Lingfield in the last three years and has emerged with two wins and two placed efforts for his efforts. His runner here is For Carmel who has been the model of consistency over the larger obstacles, making the frame in four from five including a victory at Newton Abbott when last seen over fences and two placed efforts on both prior visits to Lingfield. He had a pipe-opener over hurdles last month so should be spot on for this race and has winning form in testing conditions so should be capable of another bold performance now returning to fences.
How's My Friend finished last season with a hat-trick of victories but all three came in lower grades and doesn't have the best of records when returning from a break so although is respected he may just need this, so the bigger danger could be Pray For a Rainbow who posted his only career victory over hurdles in heavy ground here at Lingfield and put in a promising run in second when last seen over fences.
