Lingfield – 2.35
Whilst this looks to be between the top 2 in the betting i feel that current 2nd favourite Travelling will take all the beating. She is un-penalised for her recent victory over today’s distance and is in fact on better terms with her jockey’s extra claim taking weight off. Jumbo Prado also won LTO but that was only by a 1/2 length and is raised 6lbs for that outing.
Travelling – 2pts Win @ 3/1 (Bet365 – *BOG)
Chepstow – 3.00
As eluded to by Lonesome yesterday the Venetia Williams stable is bang in form at present and this race can go to another one of her horses in the shape of Rydalis. She has won before on this type of ground and although this is her first race over 3m i believe the extra distance shouldn’t cause too many problems.
Rydalis – 1pt Win @ 4/1 (Bet365 – *BOG)
Lingfield – 3.10
5 go to post in this race and it is Mawaakef who sets the standard. He was only beaten by 2+ lengths in a listed event just before Christmas and a repeat of that form here should see him winning this one.
Mawaakef – 2pts Win @ 7/4 (Various)
