The Nap of the Day betting tip runs at Lingfield this afternoon. NOTDs are to carry a maximum stake of 3pts unless otherwise stated.
Sometimes we are presented with perfect set-ups where the conditions of a particular race throw up a terrific value bet.
Today is one of those days, we have 8 runners, we have confirmed pace and we have a horse who has run well before from a break.
Add to that the fact we have a winner over this distance, a jockey in form and a horse who handles polytrack and we have a nice each-way bet at 5/1 with Mr Green.
Sky Defender was thought good enough to compete in the London Handicap last out which is always a hot race. It didn’t work out that day but the distance beaten was due to PJ McDonald taking it easy once the race was beyond him.
Trainer Mark Johnston knows when he has a good one and just the fact he ran in that race suggests he’s held in high regard. This is a much easier affair to take on after a spell.
