13:50 Lingfield Wed 16 January 2019
Debutante who is a half-brother to four winners including the useful Raa Atoll and the Group-placed Moderah. Plenty of stamina on the dam's side of the pedigree; worth a glance in the betting starting out in a race that lacks depth for a decent yard.
Very green on his debut over 1m on the AW he didn't appear to have learnt much from that outing when tried over the same trip here second time out. May step forward a little given the increased trip but a big improvement is needed.
33-1 on debut at Chelmsford over 1m last month he's now stepped up 4f for his first run as a three-year-old having stayed on well last time. That race may well have fallen apart a little (first two in the betting failed to fire); likely improver.
From a yard that does well on the AW this debutant has a good chance of scoring first time up with the distaff side of the pedigree containing plenty of stamina. Well worth noting any support with this contest looking one that will take little winnin
Has shown progress on each of her three starts with the longest trip she's tried (an extended 1m1f) looking to suit her last time. The form overall looks modest though (flattered by her proximity to the winner) and she'll be better in handicaps.
From a yard not known for their prowess in this sphere she does have a pedigree that suggests this test will suit. Faces a stiff task on debut though and best watched on this occasion.
Not without support on her debut (started 7-1) over 7f on her debut at Wolverhampton and showed some ability amongst her inexperience; beat only one home. Will know more this time around and better expected; hooded first-time.
Poor maiden who despite being the most experienced of these lacks the ability to mount a challenge based on her efforts off lowly marks in handicaps over shorter trips. Connections clutching at straws upping her in trip and makes limited appeal.
