Leiester Racing Tips: Big performance expect from Lebowski

Timeform’s Andrew Asquith highlights a NAP, Next Best and Each-Way selection at Leicester on Wednesday.

“…it will be a big surprise if he doesn’t prove better than a mark of 127…”

NAP

Lebowski – 15:20 Leicester

Lebowski has made a faultless start over hurdles for Michael Scudamore, winning a couple of novice hurdles at Ffos Las and Ayr, and he should have even more to offer now handicapping. He proved a class apart in a race which has worked out well in November and didn’t need to improve to follow up under a penalty at Ayr last time, though he had more in hand than the three-length margin suggests. Lebowski looks a good prospect, and it will be a big surprise if he doesn’t prove better than a mark of 127, so he is strongly fancied to maintain his unbeaten record over hurdles.

NEXT BEST

Red Happy – 14:45 Leicester

French-recruit Red Happy looks very interesting having his first start for David Pipe. He is still only a four-year-old, but he has already won three times over fences in his native France, and was claimed out of Gabriel Leenders’ yard for EUR20,352 after winning at Fontainebleau last month in this headgear combination (blinkers and tongue strap). That form is hard to get a firm grasp on, but on Timeform figures, a BHA mark of 123 looks very workable, especially with his weight-for-age allowance, and he has joined a yard that have had plenty of success with similar types in the past.

SBK7/2

EXC5.9

Trainer: David Pipe
Jockey: Tom Scudamore
Age: 4
Weight: 11st 4lbs
OR: 123

EACH WAY

Crossing Lines – 13:03 Leicester

Thus looks a decidedly weak maiden hurdle, so it could be worth chancing Rules debutant Crossing Lines at the prices. He is a well related sort – a half-brother to three winners, including a useful chaser – and he won two of his three starts in points in 2019. Clearly, he has had some problems since, but he represents a yard that know how to ready one after an absence, and he won’t have to be anything special to make a winning start here.
