"...deserves to get her head in front following close calls the last twice..."

Timeform on Shining

TRUE DESTINY - Lingfield 12:40

TRUE DESTINY fared better than the bare result when third at Wolverhampton two weeks ago, left poorly placed in a steadily-run race and doing well under the circumstances to finish as close as he did, never nearer than the two and three quarter lengths he was beaten after also meeting trouble early in the straight. In truth, that was a race that jockey Adam McNamara will want to forget, but he is able to make full use of his 3 lb claim here and would appear to hold sound claims of making amends, with the prospect of more to come from True Destiny; he has been generally progressive since the blinkers were applied and looks sure to relish the further step up in trip.

SHINING - Lingfield 14:10

SHINING deserves to get her head in front following close calls the last twice, and she is presented with a good opportunity to do just that this afternoon. Indeed, she finished nicely clear of the rest when just edged out in a C&D minor event on Friday and this mark probably underestimates her; she is 2 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings, with Paddy Bradley, who was in the saddle for the first of her near misses at Kempton, taking a further 5 lb off her back. London Rock is next on the list, albeit only narrowly as Reticent Angel and Ginvincible are also appealing.

PARA MIO - Lingfield 15:40

PARA MIO failed to justify strong support on his handicap debut at Yarmouth last month, but he was entitled to need the run after six months off and a wind operation, and could be worth another chance off what is potentially a lenient mark. Indeed, his debut form behind Herculean and the smart Wadilsafa looks very strong now and the application of a first-time tongue strap here might just help him to see his race out that bit better. On the back of a solid effort at Brighton, Lady Marigold has to be feared, while Cuttin' Edge shaped as though going back up in trip would help when fourth over six furlongs here last time.
