Horse racing tips: This longshot at Lingfield in the first race back with fans can start Wednesday with a bang – The Irish Sun

SUN Racing is back to give you some insight on big horses at even bigger prices.

Here, we try to find the value bets which could net you a tasty return from a small stake.



KING ATHELSTAN (11.30 Lingfield)

Gary Moore’s five-year-old looked very much in need of his comeback from four months off when midfield here last time.

He has plenty of decent form at the track including when winning over this trip last December. His mark is just 2lb higher than that today and he should go well under all-weather king Adam Kirby.

Each way thief

BARRINGTON (2.45 Lingfield)

Has held his own at a higher level than this and is interesting upped in distance for this comeback.

The last time he tackled seven furlongs was at Chepstow in July when he was a solid third.

A repeat of that form under Cieren Fallon should see him in the mix.

ELMEJOR (7.30 Kempton)

The booking of Silvestre De Sousa takes the eye on his four-year-old who is coming nicely down the weights.

He was going close in much stronger contests than this earlier this year and will appreciate stepping back up to a mile today.

Aside from these, SunSport resident tipster Templegate has picked a horse in each race on Wednesday.
