Nick Shiambouros returns with two selections from Lingfield to end his current stint in the tipping chair...
"This daughter of Sea The Stars has yet to win a Listed or Group race, but has run well in defeat"
14:20 Lingfield - Sweeping Up
Sweeping Up is an interesting runner in this Listed contest.
With breeding season around the corner, trainer Hughie Morrison will be keen to earn some Black Type for his well related filly. This daughter of Sea The Stars has yet to win a Listed or Group race, but has run well in defeat.
She finished an excellent second to the smart Jack Hobbs in the September Stakes at Kempton last month. A reproduction of that effort would see her go close.
She is trading at 5.85/1 on the exchange which is more than fair.
California could be the danger to the selection. This lightly raced filly finished seventh in a Listed race at Chantilly last month. She was heavily backed, but never landed a blow behind the game winner.
She is open to further improvement and it is no surprise to see her trading at 4.57/2.
15:20 Lingfield - Lamar
Lamar could run well at a price in this second Listed race of the day.
This filly last ran when finishing down the field behind Gm Hopkins in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot in June.
She had previously contested a valuable Group 3 race at the Derby meeting and was not disgraced behind Arabian Queen. I think she is capable of winning a race of this nature and is reasonably priced at 9.08/1.
It may pay to have a small saver on Taaqah. This filly has run creditably in Group company, and the recent addition of blinkers appears to have had a positive effect.
