Gorgeous Goblin can go well at a double-figure price under Jamie Spencer at Lingfield today, reckons our Will Hayler.

Jamie Spencer: Gets the mount on Gorgeous Goblin

Gorgeous Goblin: 4.10 Lingfield

Even by the normal fast-and-furious standards of a six-furlong sprint around Lingfield, today's Lingfield Park Owners Group Handicap is a contest packed full of pace and I can see this race falling into a come-from-behind performer like Gorgeous Goblin.

This quirky customer tends to travel strongly in her races without always finding as much as might be expected, but Jamie Spencer could be a match made in heaven for her.

Even more importantly, she has seemed in as good form as ever in recent weeks, being beaten less than three lengths in a Listed event over course and distance last month before a more disappointing effort at Southwell where the race was not run to suit.

With pacesetters such Al's Memory, Forest Edge, Perfect Pastime in the line-up, it really is hard to see how this contest won't run at an end-to-end gallop which should enable Spencer to switch Gorgeous Goblin off in the early stages and bring her through with a late challenge.

An each-way bet at double-figure odds is recommended.
