Race 4 – Lingfield 12:35am
1. Amlak: Clearly held in fairly high regard by connections considering she was pitched into listed company on just her second start (sent off at 15/2) and she appears to have been handed a lenient looking opening handicap mark based on the form she showed when second at Wolverhampton in a maiden last time, where she pulled clear of the field with the winner who already had some warm form in the book.
From a good draw, she should be hard to beat with Frankie Dettori back on board. Compton Lane is under a penalty for a Chepstow nursery win last time and, potentially as effective now back in trip, he could be the main danger.
BACK – Amlak
Race 4 – Beverley 12:40am
3. Mustaqqil: Based on the way he has been shaping up (found the frame on his last two starts), it would be a surprise if David O’Meara didn’t manage to get a victory out of Mustaqqil sooner or later, and with this slight increase in trip expected to suit, he could have been found a good opportunity here.
Chaplin Bay was below form last time but had been fairly consistent prior to that and should be capable of returning to form here given his overall profile.
BACK – Mustaqqil
Race 6 – Ffos Las 3:25am
3. Pensax Lad: Current form should count for plenty here given several of the field are arriving here with something to prove on the back of some poor efforts, and Pensax Lad is the one that stands out in this regard.
A 3 lb rise in the weights for his first turf win for two years last time at Sandown leaves him on a workable mark in this sort of race and, still well treated based on his all-weather form, he is worth chancing to land the double.
Equally Fast has dropped below his last winning mark but finished last at Haydock last time and must bounce back.
BACK – Pensax Lad
