With the exception of Beau Sakhee, all have a chance at the weights. However, Be On The Bell disappointed here on Tuesday and Windforpower beat lower-rated rivals than he meets here at Lingfield a week ago. Hardy Red should make a bold bid on the back of last week's second over 7f but a chance is taken on HIDDON COIN. He hasn't raced since well beaten in a decent nursery at York last summer but made all to win his maiden at Redcar before that and may be good enough in this company on his return.
