13:35 Lingfield

Far Too Beautiful is the only competitor in this race that has raced at Lingfield and actually won, over the same distance of 1 mile and 3½ furlongs. This was also on soft ground, which it is currently at Lingfield. Granted it was a small runner affair and she was well and truly hammered by Frankel’s sister, Chiasma, last time out. Moreover, because she has won a race, she is handed a 7lbs penalty. She would need to improve a lot to take the victory but at her current market price, she has potential to be a nice each way shout.

Absolutely Divine has an absolutely divine pedigree, by Golden Horn and a smart American mare, which makes her a relation to some classy performers on the flat and over fences. She’s quite an enigma because this is her first start. Ed Walker is in relatively good form and as is the champion jockey, Oisin Murphy. She’s owned by Lady Bamford, who has had some stellar horses throughout the years. The market seems to be fluctuating so it seems they haven’t cracked the enigma! I would be surprised if she didn’t run well but the lack of experience may just hinder her.

Yesyes accounted for smart bumper performer, Eileendover when she scooter away to win her first race. That was on soft ground, over this distance, at Haydock. She seemed to have plenty in hand when she passed the post and Rob Hornby retains the ride on her. She’s a half sister to Pocket Square, who won a Group 3 over here and now races in America. She does have a penalty of 7lbs for her Haydock success but judging by how she ran away from a decent field, I doubt it will hinder her much. Additionally, the added bonus of how she’s already had a day at school will definitely help, especially as she was slow out of the stalls at Haydock, so hopefully she will have learnt from that. She’s not the greatest price in the world and I’d imagine she’ll shorten more from the time I’ve written this but I’d be very surprised to see her get beat. That being said, I would like to aim for a bit of value and I think that can be given by the each way selection.
