Friday’s All Weather

12.35 Lingfield: Not a betting heat at the moment but I am interested to see how Compensate trades early as he was given a rather questionable ride last time out and looked intentionally run at Southwell to ensure a low debut handicap mark.

1.10 Lingfield: Far to close a call between Mohareb and Reeves. Sean Davis is 2 from 4 for Mr Cowell including a win on this runner. Ben Curtis is an interesting jockey booking for Power Link but I did think Baby Steps was a little overpriced.

2.20 Lingfield: Mr Haggas’s Far Rockaway by Frankel is the one I like here. The trainers recent record with his 3 year olds making their handicap debut on the AW after either 3 or 4 runs is very strong. Generally operating at over 41% since 2017. In 2017 it was 3/4, 2018 4/13 and 2019 6/12. The trainer should have a good line in to the race through his 67 Rated St Just who finished just under 1¾ lengths in front of Island Hideaway.

3.55 Lingfield: It will be interesting to see how the jockey gets Deeds Not Words beaten. The horse would be a confident bet if not for the trainers record with recent acquisitions from other yards. He is 3 from 6 over CD off at least 16lbs higher marks than today when winning 3 races on the bounce this time last year. He was clearly being handicapped by Tracy Waggot but whether he is fit enough to do himself justice is debatable and the market will tell us all we need to know.
