Lingfield Park provides a close card of racing on Friday afternoon and features 11 in the field for the day's 3.30 Handicap, Scott Dixon's Coiste Bodhar a winner at the venue in October last year and potential 9/1 value to make up for a forgetable run here last month according to Freebets.com racing tipster, Alan Kelly.
The latest of the four-your-old's three flat race victories came four months ago at the same course when Oisin Murphy rode the keen Bay clear during a shake-up entering the final furlong, touching 14/1 on that occasion only to be recently brought down to earth here last month when he tailed the field of eight that day after a weak finish.
Dixon's well treated charge will be taken over by David Parkes for Friday's 6f1y race on Standard ground and the blinkers could have a positive effect, leaving the 9/1 value with Coral very appealing (plus Faller Insurance).
Coiste Bodhar's young trainer Dixon has already claimed two wins this month thanks to Pearl Noir and Spowarticus, and you can read more from the trainer himself by signing up for a free trial at Trainers-quotes.com.
Gung Ho Jack is at the top of his game at present although the favourite will also be the heaviest for the contest after two consecutive wins including victory just two days ago at the same Lingfield venue, while the likes of Bookmaker and Reginald Claude are also capable winners if the cards fall right for either.
