Lingfield Park has today’s best slate of horse races in England. On the first day of May, the English racing schedule is surprisingly quiet. For a helping hand, we are sharing a horse racing nap of the day from Sky Sports. The going will be standard because Lingfield Park has a consistent Polytrack surface.
Race-goers are looking to the high-profile 17:15 Handicap as the most important race of the day, as it features the biggest prize fund at £7,250. Pearl Noir has been earmarked as the most likely prospect to win it at odds of 7/2, but the five-year-old has only won once in its past six races.
At nine years old, Desert Strike is a more mature option compared to the inexperienced Pearl Noir. On recent form, Pearl Noir has won two of its last six races and will yield odds of around 9/2.
