Verdict

Ocean Applause never figured at Lingfield last time when failing to land a hat-trick and needs to reverse that running with runner-up Apache Glory. The latter went within a short-head of catching Archie Rice and looks to have leading claims of going one better. Kelpie Blitz also went close at Lingfield last month, though he hasn't won since 2012, while Serenity Spa has been treading water off similar marks to today since winning at Windsor last summer. POITIN is still improving judged on recent placed efforts at this track and Harry Dunlop's filly gets the nod in this with further progress likely.
