A bustling all-weather card at Lingfield Park provides us with Wednesday's chance to scoop the Placepot...
"Several well-bred newcomers provide an interesting angle to this 12-furlong maiden..."
14:10 - With morning favourite Emperor's Hope declared a non-runner, Limegrove looks to have an excellent chance in the small but select field for this claimer. She won a maiden over C&D in May and a subsequent length-and-a-quarter second to listed winner Fig Roll at Salisbury suggests she is better than the rest if in the right frame of mind.
14:40 - Two selections will suffice in this large-field maiden, the first of which is Mount Cherion, who hasn't made much impression so far but is fancied to do better upped in trip given his fine pedigree. Floating Ballerino makes most appeal of the rest, and his fifth to Recanted at Newbury last time looks amongst the better pieces of form going into the race and justifies his selection.
15:10 - Several well-bred newcomers provide an interesting angle to this 12-furlong maiden and will get the vote over the form picks National Poet and Lion's Park. Economy's price suggests he should go well for the powerful Moore and Stoute team and makes the shortlist, as does Godolphin second string Exploratory: his yard have nearly as many winners as losers on the all-weather here and he represents a more interesting prospect than his shorter-priced stable mate.
15:40 - Another big-field maiden follows close behind, and Fledged should come on for his short-head second (winner ran creditably in a competitive handicap at Windsor on Monday) at Nebwury last time where his inexperience cost him. The well-bred Fragonard needed the run at Kempton last time after almost two years off the track, will undoubtedly come on for the run and could well deliver on the promising form (short head second in decent Newmarket maiden) of her early career.
16:10 - The first handicap of today's card looks an interesting contest and Duchess of Gazeley could well be under-bet due to an unfashionable yard. Her C&D win last time out suggested there was more improvement to come and whilst other rivals, notably Slip of The Tongue Sultanah Hayem, are also unexposed, the Gary Harrison-trained filly should figure in proceedings.
16:40 - The final leg of today's Placepot comes courtesy of the five furlong handicap where Charming just about gets the nod in a noticeably tight field. There was much to like about his short-head second at Yarmouth last time out and if raced prominently over this shorter trip he should give a good account of himself here; Dangerous Age heads the list of dangers.
