Horse Racing Tips: Four Picks at Warwick & Lingfield on Sunday

The Winter Million Festival at Lingfield continues on Sunday and the six-race card at Warwick is not too shabby either.

We’ve assessed the pick of the action at both meetings and come up with four, value-for-money selections.

Warwick: 2:15 Ian Duckham’s 70th Birthday Celebration Mares’ ‘National Hunt’ Novices’ Hurdle 2m3f

Nextdoortoalice has run well on both starts since joining Alex Hales from Co. Waterford trainer Declan Queally in October and can resume winning ways. The Mahler mare was only headed in the final strides by subsequent comfortable winner Holly Hartingo at Ludlowin December and dropping back in distance slightly should do her no harm.

Selection: Nextdoortoalice (9/4 with Bet365)


Warwick: 2:50 Try Racing TV For Free Now Handicap Hurdle 2m

Formerly a 91-rated middle-distance handicapper on the Flat for Roger Varian, Lydford has made excellent progress over hurdles since joining Dan Skelton in November and may be able to complete a hat-trick. The son of Australian champion sire Fastnet Rock put up his best performance so far when winning at Market Rasen on Boxing Day and can take another step forward here.

Selection: Lydford (5/2 with Bet365)


Lingfield: 2:25 Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide Hurdle 2m3f110y

Brewin’upastorm was arguably unlucky when coming down at the final flight at Cheltenham last time and can make amends. Olly Murphy’s 9-year-old had previously recorded a impressive, 9-length victory over If The Cap Fits at Aintree in November and, having won twice on soft going, should not be unduly incovenienced by testing conditions.

Selection: Brewin’upastorm (6/4 with Betfred)


Lingfield: 3:35 Surrey National Handicap Chase 3m5f

Go Whatever opened his account over regulation fences in the Sussex National at Plumpton three weeks ago in a first-time visor and, although closely handicapped with the runner-up, Pemberley, may be capable of following up. A winner on heavy going over hurdles, he remains unexposed as an out-and-out stayer over the larger obstacles.

Selection: Go Whatever (9/2 with 888Sport)
