Lingfield Wednesday 12th July

Lingfield 3.55 1 Archangel Raphael @ 14/1 /  Lingfield 4.05 2 Ballyfarsoon @ 8/1 - 1/2 point each way each horse

I love the turf track at Lingfield; an undulating track, up hill; down dale and a marquee
left hand turn in to the straight, a bit reminiscent of Epsom. The Going is likely to be Good to Soft and I fancy
a pair today who are nice odds and should have scope to run very well. ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL ran a promising
race last time in a better race than this. It is now down to its lowest grade/mark yet has always promised to be a decent
Class 4 horse, every horse can win given the right opportunity and despite top weight, I feel this is great each way
value at 14/1, for a yard that gives middle distance horses a chance to develop later in their careers. The following
race over 2 miles is equally moderate quality but the Ian Williams trained BALLYFARSOON looks the each way
banker of the race. The trip and Going will not be a problem and the Yard is in fine form, the booking of James
Doyle particularly catches my eye and will be disappointing if not bang in contention.
