15.30 Lingfield

An intriguing mile and a quarter handicap, in which all of the six runners would have chances.

Last time out winner Mummy’s Boy looked to have improved for being gelded. The manner of his win was slightly unorthodox in that he was on and off the bridle, but ultimately won quite comfortably. He hasn’t been unduly punished and if in the same mood will be a danger.

Nuble bids for a four timer. His last three victories have only been by short margins, so the handicapper hasn’t been able to get to carried away. Obvious chance.

The selection will be Semser. His first three career runs for the Varian stable stands head and shoulders above what the rest of the opposition has achieved.

He has taken his time to come to hand for the Gary Moore yard, but looks to be getting back on track.

There’s a chance he could not be one hundred percent straightforward, however he could still be ahead of his current rating.


19:00 Southwell

Mr Shady is hardly a winning machine, but would certainly have a chance on his latest run when finishing third to a horse that has followed up. His yard are in good form and he looks sure to be in the shake up.

Nataleena is a consistent type at this level. She stays particularly well and has eased enough in the weights to make her of interest for a place.

A chance is taken on handicap debutant Robert Hooke. He looks the type to have been brought along steadily with handicaps in mind. Stoutly bred, this trip should be well within his compass and with a basement mark of 59 he’s taken to open his account for a shrewd trainer.
