At the time of writing this piece, William Buick has ridden 198 winners in 2022 and is operating at a staggering 27 per cent strike rate, so in essence he gets a winner at least one in every four rides.
Lingfield Racecourse wouldn’t be his most favoured track, but he has some really good chances on the card there on Saturday. All five runners have a big chance but we have put his best four chances into a Lucky 15 which can be backed above.
Buick is a very high profile on the Kent trained runner Obsidian Knight here. It is his first time riding the gelding, who is a dual winner at the track and went down by the narrowest margins at Wolverhampton the last twice. Buick can make the difference here.
Bethersden Boy has been knocking the door down of late, being close up thirds at Kempton, Lingfield and Wolverhampton in his last three starts. He travelled powerfully through his race over 6f each time, but got passed out in the final furlong so the drop back to 5f could be the answer.
The well bred Sea Tsarina is entitled to plenty of respect but she is up against it taking on in form Queen Of Ipanema. The daughter of Teofilo has won five races on the bounce and a further 3lb rise in the weights is unlikely to halt her progression.
Algiers is the horse that they all have to beat in the finale which is a Listed event, but Buick might fancy his chances on Harrovian. The gelding was second only to Pyledriver in this race last year and a repeat of that will put him right in the mix.
