Timeform on Habub

Timeform take you through the card at Lingfield on Tuesday evening...

16:55 - ARCTIC SEA (4) has been in good heart in two starts since returning to action at the beginning of the month, placing at both Chelmsford and Pontefract, and arriving here just 1 lb higher than his last winning mark, he can build on his recent good work by picking up career success number four. Nawar is well handicapped on just his second run for Martin Bosley and should go well after a wind operation, while Weloof is another key player.

17:25 - It's difficult to get past LACAN (5), who has run respectably in stronger races here the last twice, both coming in handicap company, and he will be very difficult to beat on these terms now dropped into selling company. Shyron is a regular at this venue and is respected, while Come On Tier is another danger.

17:55 - An open race, in which it could be worth siding with COMEONFEELTHEFORCE (7). She proved to be better than ever when making a successful reappearance on her first start for Lee Carter at Kempton last time, getting up close home to beat Capofaro, and has outstanding claims on these terms, as the booking of the in-form 7 lb claimer Georgia Dobie means she's racing off 3 lb lower this time around. Capofaro should go close again with more to come, while Temujin is another to consider.

18:25 - A confident vote goes the way of PROBABILITY (1), who's absolutely thriving at the moment, completing a hat-trick over this trip at Kempton 9 days ago. She's been raised another 3 lb for that, but plenty of her rivals have something to prove, meaning she looks the most solid option. Alnasherat has been disappointing to far, but could prove a different proposition now handicapping for Sir Michael Stoute.

18:55 - It's going to be tough to defeat the unbeaten HABUB (1), a $700,000 purchase as a yearling, who looked a smart prospect when winning a maiden at Chelmsford on his debut last September. He made a particularly good impression on the clock that day, and should have no issues following up. Maid of Spirit returns from a similar absence and is second choice, though Physics is presumably thought to be capable of better.

19:25 - The best proposition here could prove to be COME ON DAVE (3), who found just one rival too good when well-backed to finish second over C&D 17 days ago having rejoined John Butler, and he looks too well-treated to ignore now that he looks to have returned to form. Fareeq was one place further back in that race and is expected to figure again, while Hurricane Alert was demoted having finished first past the post at Chelmsford last time and is respected.

19:55 - It's likely that punters will go home happy after the lucky last, as it's very difficult to ignore the claims of the short-priced favourite RICH CUMMINS (5). He pulled clear with another unexposed sort when finishing a neck second at Wolverhampton 10 days ago, and he can go one better having only been raised 3 lb by the handicapper. Torolight shapes as though worth a go at this trip and is feared most, though Mi Manchi could easily up her game now handicapping.
