Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
12,45 The capable but disappointing Starshiba had a record of just 1 win from 27 , but has turned that around good style of late with 2 wins and a close 2nd in his last 3, all coming here . He’s a late player , which most of the field are which gives the very well handicapped Rhubarb Bikini an excellent race make up being the only prominent racer , but may find himself going a stride too quick down in trip . The tip was beaten just a length here last time and the winner has defied a penalty since . He is 3 pounds higher for his win over C&D and will have stiff opposition from the ultra consistent Masqool, but you have to follow a horse who’s found his mojo .
1/2pt win Starshiba @ 11/8
1.15 I’m with a very similar type in this very winnable race in Free Solo , winless for over 3 years and comes here on the back of 2 wins and a close 2nd, all here and his last run was a cracker , just narrowly denied over C&D off his new mark , 13 pounds higher than the first win in this sequence . He was a bit far back last time but came with a right old rattle and likely to take a handy sit today . Politics has plenty to prove off this mark , switching from tapeta and up in trip while the drop in trip is unlikely to help the long standing maiden Hul Ah Bah Loo .
3/4pt win Free Solo @ 7/4
2.15 PREMIUM RACE
2.45 The consistent Man On A Mission goes for the hat-trick , after an easy win over C&D last time , but is up 3 pounds and is now in Class 5 where his record stands at just 1 place from 3 tries . Mick’s Spirit is a 3 time C&D winner and is rarely far away . He’s usually front rank throughout and did well last time over C&D when held for a late charge , and just found one too good . In a race short of contenders , supporters are hoping a drop in trip can revive the unconvincing of late Lilkian .
1/2pt win Mick’s Spirit @ 10/3
3.45 The switch to a new stable was all that Goldsmith required to show what he’s made of as he swooped under a patient ride to win well over C&D and off just a 2 pound higher mark, the double looks on . Kardinya won well at Wolver last time but the 4 pound hit won’t help and has a poor record on polytrack . There is sufficient pace in the contest to allow the tip to sit off the gallop and should be running these down late on .
1/2pt win Goldsmith @ 7/4
Selected Kempton – all weather – polytrack
5.00 PREMIUM RACE
6.00 A weak handicap and the consistent Foinix can finally have his day in the Sun as he’s proven on the surface , trip and mark .
1/4pt win Foinix @ 6/4
6.30 Arbaawi was very well supported in his first handicap , getting up close home at Southwell and you have to worry about the 5 pound hit as he switches surface and not well drawn . Quite a few of these have clashed before and most hold their form well . Miss Moonshine was a close 2nd at Lingfield last time , unlucky not to win as the jockey lost his stirrups at the start. That’s not the first time she’s run well off this mark , trip and surface and shouldn’t be far away .
1/4pt ew Miss Moonshine @ 6/1
7.30 The Godolphin filly Elegant Charm looks a bit high in the ratings now as she was a fairly well held 2nd at Southwell last time while the other Godolphin filly Glittering Lights has been competing over longer trips and doesn’t look likely to appreciate the drop in trip . Rattling and Miss Bella Brand are now on stiff marks while Alcazan can only be watched after throwing in a bad one last time . Cherish is a cracking mare who always runs her race and only narrowly beaten in her last 3 . She has a rare try on polytrack and as the worst of the draw , but the odds too high too ignore .
1/4pt ew Cherish @ 18/1
