Only 3 meetings in the UK today and the whisper tipster hears of a good thing at Lingfield.

Bonttay won 3 bumpers last season, including the listed mares bumper at the Cheltenham open meeting in November. She was out to regain her crown this season but found only the Grade 1 bumper bound Queens Gamble too strong, she still managed to finish a good 2nd of 16, showing she retains all her ability. She was held up off the pace that day, but finished the race off very strongly. She looks a mare who will enjoy a distance beyond the 2m she tackles here, however the softish ground conditions should ensure a stamina test at the trip. The whispers tipster hears she has schooled well ahead of today's assignment and the stable are really looking forward to getting her going over timber. At prohibitive odds she rates a 2 star win Pick.
