All-Weather specialist Simon Mapletoft has advised three consecutive winning naps and now turns his attention to the action at Lingfield Park and Wolverhampton on Friday.

Hayley at the Double with Race Card

MansionBet ambassador Hayley Turner can complete a quick fire double on the unexposed RACE CARD (Nap) in the mile and a half handicap at Lingfield Park on Friday (1.10).

The four-year-old should have no trouble defying a 5lb penalty for a bloodless success over the same trip at Wolverhampton last week, when he proved much too good for recent winner Eagle One.

I expect David Simcock’s Kingman gelding to have too much in hand for in-form rivals Cafe Sydney and Lady Pendragon, who both finished second at this track last time but have no secrets.

Improving Flame Ready to Set Lingfield Alight

The MansionBet Proud Partners Of AWC Handicap (2.40) at Lingfield can go to the improving BLUE FLAME, who looks weighted to supplement his win at Newcastle last month.

Ed Dunlop’s gelding was resolute in getting off the mark on only his fifth career start and shouldn’t be inconvenienced by just a 2lb rise with champion Richard Kingscote on board.

This sharper test looks ideal for my selection who has more to offer than key rivals Always Dreaming – still a maiden after 15 starts – and Keep Right On, whose course and distance win was his first in 16 attempts.

Bear with Bob on Wolverhampton Return

Championship leader David Probert can win the extended mile handicap at Wolverhampton on Friday (5.30) with BEARING BOB.

Mark Loughnane’s gelding was well backed when running on well to be second over course and distance on his handicap debut following a wind operation.

He is entitled to sharpen up for his first run for almost three months and, resuming off an unchanged mark, can capitalise on the weight he receives from all of his rivals.

Share More Profits with Red Hot Knight

Tom Marquand and William Knight look a winning combination with SHARE THE PROFITS in the closing five-furlong handicap at Wolverhampton (8.00).

This three-year-old made an impressive handicap debut at Southwell two weeks ago under an inexperienced rider on his first very try over the minimum trip.

He will have no problem negotiating Wolverhampton’s sharp turns, even though he is drawn a little wider than ideal, and can follow up off a feasible new mark for a trainer who began the week with a 36% strike rate this season.
