On Friday, Lingfield host the All Weather Championships which is also a superb event for flat racing fans and ahead of the meeting we have a big priced each way ante-post selection.

In the penultimate event on the card it sees the Bombardier All-Weather Mile Championships Condition Stakes and for us Mission Boy for Marco Botti looks a huge price at 14/1.

The five year old has been largely consistent throughout his career and especially this year since coming over to England from Italy.

He made his British debut over course and distance at Lingfield in January and finished a good second behind behind a nice type for Simon & Ed Crisford.

The gelding headed to Kempton next time out and although only finishing fourth, it was behind some very smart all weather winners.

Last time out he gave one of his best runs to date when third of eight at Wolverhampton staying on well in the later stages to pick up a place.

What was also very taking with this run was that he did not settle throughout the race wasting a lot of energy and also before the event he was violent sweating up.

If being able to settle better and be much calmer before the race, the 14/1 on offer could be huge.
