14:20 Lingfield - Burgess Dream


Burgess Dream is an interesting runner in this handicap hurdle.

This gelding was a little disappointing when finishing a distant second in a chase behind Matrow's Lady over this course last month. He held every chance three from home, but the winner pulled right away from him to score easily. He is best judged on his previous effort when winning a handicap hurdle in great style from Flugzeug. I think he will go close, and is reasonably priced at 5.04/1 on the exchange.

Champagne Chaser heads the market at 2.6813/8. He was narrowly beaten when finishing third to Just Joelliott at Ludlow last month. He has never won on ground this testing and represents poor value in my opinion.


17:25 Wolverhampton - Rutherford


Rutherford looks like the one to beat in this maiden.

This Dutch Art filly put in a much improved effort when finishing second to Choumica at Leicester last October. She was collared inside the final furlong, but fought back gamely and was only just denied. I was impressed with her attitude, and will b e surprised if she does not take this. At present she is trading at 2.01/1 on the exchange which is just about right.

The beautifully bred Lady Hester is by Bernadini and is out of Grade 1 winner Questing, who won the Coaching Club at Saratoga. She has not shown much in her first two starts, but it is too early to give up on her. Trainer John Gosden would love to get a win out of this filly to enhance her paddock value. She rates as the main danger and is currently trading at 6.25/1 on the exchange.
