59-11OR: 55D
11/4

Seeks a November hat-trick following wins at Wolverhampton (1m1½f) and Chelmsford (1m2f); carries a 5lb penalty for his 4½L drubbing of Arlecchino's Arc; trainer cannily deploys the 5lb claimer Kevin Lundie.

Sole win (from 26 starts) came over C&D in March; hasn't fired lately (now 7lb lower); blinkers belatedly applied.

Has been around the block a few times (is quirky and often slowly away); remains a maiden on the AW (0-12); 1lb higher than when a keeping on 1L second to Mabo at Kempton (1m) 37 days ago.

Hasn't built upon a fair opening effort (fifth) at Kempton (1m) in September; is probably worth tracking in the market just in case ahead of handicap debut.

Dismal since introduced to handicapping (tailed-off on all three starts); virtually impossible to fancy from a wide draw in stall 14.

Consistent throughout October and November, winning from a 3lb lower mark at Wolverhampton (1m1½f); enters the thinking in a weak race, with a placed finish considered a probable outcome.

Back to form lately recording successive wins at Kempton and Wolverhampton (both 1m4f); carries no penalty for the latest success (apprentices handicap); the drop back in trip isn't an obvious next step, yet merits respect nevertheless.

All three previous wins have come at this track (1m-1m2f); competes from a perfectly feasible looking handicap mark if he can recapture his peak form from 2018; handy draw in stall 1.

Iffraaj filly (picked up unraced for 10,000gns in May); hasn't set the world alight in three runs in AW maidens/novice contests (1m-1m1½f); lowly rated for handicap debut.

Off the mark at the tenth time of asking when readily winning a Brighton selling handicap (1m2f, good to firm) for Sir Mark Prescott; joined this trainer at the subsequent auction; seemingly has work to do with Foresee.

16-race maiden; has flirted with hurdling in recent months; returned to the AW at Newcastle (1m) three weeks ago when finishing 2½L fourth of 12 to Proceeding; makes the long journey south from Belstane.

Veteran, 11 wins from 102 starts; beaten in excess of 5L when a keeping on fourth to Avorisk Et Perils here (1m) 12 days ago; stays 1m2, but better known as a miler.

Betting

Forecast

Foresee (7/4), Red Gunner (11/4), Spark Of War (11/2), Fire Island (8/1), Sir Gnet (12/1), Pike Corner Cross (14/1), Presence Process (14/1), Gerry The Glover (16/1), Mister Musicmaster (20/1), Sunshineandbubbles (25/1), Ramatuelle (33/1), Never To Forget (50/1), Johni Boxit (66/1), Onomatopoeia (66/1)

Verdict

Both RED GUNNER and Foresee are on hat-trick missions following a productive spell of racing. The latter carries no penalty for a recent Wolverhampton win (apprentices handicap) but it remains to be seen how he copes with dropping back in trip (from 1m4f) at a sharp track like Lingfield. Therefore, the confident selection is the David Loughnane-trained runner with the 5lb claimer Kevin Lundie cannily deployed in the saddle to negate an incurred penalty. For anyone seeking a better priced each-way alternative, Pike Corner Cross merits serious consideration.
