Tinshu's love affair with Lingfield

Tinshu landed her fourth course-and-distance success when repeating last year's victory in the Dormansland Handicap at Lingfield.

Carson: judged it right

It was a timely triumph for the six-year-old mare as she is going to the Tattersalls December Sale next week.

Jockey William Carson was never too far off the pace set by Spifer and got a dream run on the rails.

Tinshu (5-1) quickened nicely and held the late thrust of Robin Hoods Bay by a neck, with the fast-finishing Emerald Wilderness third.

"She's for sale on Monday at the December Sales, but she won't be going for nothing," said trainer Derek Haydn Jones .

"With the form she's in now, the plan is if she doesan't sell she'll come back for the Listed race she won here last year."

Carson said: "Last time here the race didn't go plan.

"I had instructions to stay closer to the pace and she's pulled out all the stops."

The rider was completing a 29-1 double after earlier steering home the Stuart Williams-trained The Strig (4-1 co-favourite) in the Betfred Mobile Sports Handicap.

The Strig got on top in the last half a furlong to outpoint Roy's Legacy by three-quarters of a length.

"I get there a bit too soon - he was half pulling up at the end - but he stuck on well at least," the jockey told At The Races.

Mighty Yar (11-1) made a highly promising debut for trainer Sir Henry Cecil when taking division one of the British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Stakes under Eddie Ahern.

Ahern said: "He had a bad draw and we went really slow and I was out wider than I wanted to be.

"But when they travel like that and they're going slow you can get away with it.

"He's a fine, big horse and there's a fair bit of improvement in him."

Newcomer Demonic was sent off the 6-4 favourite to complete a quick double for Cecil and Ahern in division two.

However, he was only fourth as Zeus Magic (4-1), ridden by Liam Keniry, got off the mark at the third attempt for trainer David Elsworth.

Keniry said: "We went a nice gallop which helped him.

"He settled beautifully and he'll be a stayer next year.

"I thought it was quite a nice maiden. It took him a while to get organsied and the mile was plenty short enough for him."

Polar Venture produced a neat turn of foot over a furlong out to get off the mark in the Betfred "The Bonus King" Maiden Stakes.

The 30-100 shot, trained by William Haggas and ridden by Adam Beschizza, reaped the benefit of a debut third earlier this month to score by a length and a quarter from Summer Sun.

"We've spent a long time waiting for him to run. He had an injury in the spring and so it's nice for him to get off the mark as a three-year-old," said Haggas' wife and assistant, Maureen.

Natasha Eaton kept Alison Hutchinson's eight-year-old Strike Force (20-1) up to his work to land the Lingfield Marriott Hotel & Country Club Handicap.

Adam Kirby brought the Jamie Osborne-trained Corporal Maddox (5-4 favourite) from last to first in the short straight to win the Betfred "The Home of Goals Galore" Claiming Stakes.

Talented claimer Charles Bishop struck on See The Storm (9-2) for Ian Williams in the Betfred Hat Trick Heaven/Double Delight Apprentice Handicap.
