Interakt with me at Lingfield Park

With a mix of lightly raced horses still looking for their niche and horses that have not previously excelled over this trip Lingfield Parks 12:30 is a difficult puzzle to solve. Bond Club makes its debut on the surface of the back of a poor run over 6f at Southwell. It was rather odd that Lady Who made her Handicap debut over 10f LTO when running creditably in maidens over today’s trip. The 10f run shaved 3lb off its OR. Gentlemax another Handicap debutant has been running over 10f and 12f in maidens. Jin Crowley has ridden both debutants but is riding Gunning For Glory one of the least plausible chances in the race. My tentative selection is tried and trusted over trip and course, CLUB HOUSE was pulled from a race a couple of days ago and is shorter than expected in what looks to be potentially a very competitive affair.

On what form is available CONSERVE sets a very good standard for the 1:00. This will be a first run under Amy Weaver after moving from Lady Cecil after what was a disappointing run LTO but still ran to a standard which looks to have the beating of most of these. If able to reproduce its run from 22nd August CONSERVE should stroll home.

Alfred Hutchinson is a horse that I have been on the wrong side of twice in its last two runs. When a selection in its pen-ultimate run it was a never nearer 7th after no luck in running and then when producing its C&D win LTO. It sets the bar in the 1:30 but preference goes to MAVERICK and Wandsworth. This is a marked step up for the latter but the clock would suggest that it can still be competitive. MAVERICK the likely pace in the race drops back down in to a Class 3 and the jockey that rode it to victory on its pen-ultimate run, Jim Crowley back in the saddle.

The pin could drop on several in the 2:05 including Medam at the bottom of the Handicap. I have whittled it down to MY LEARNED FRIEND and Metropolitan Chief with the former getting the nod by the narrowest of margins. While Metropolitan Chief has proven to be a versatile horse having won over 5f and 7f this term all wins have come in Class 7. It was 2009 when MY LEARNED FRIEND got its head in front but its LTO run when beaten 3.5 lengths by Shaunas Spirit in a class 5 sees it run off a career low today for the very much in form Balding stable.

Sugar Hiccup has taken well to life on the NH circuit putting a string of victories together under the Champion and improved its OR from 78 to 111. Prior to its NH sabbatical it was a competitive horse in this company of an OR of 72. If it has improved by any degree it might make light work of these but my gut feeling is the NH stint may have dampened its speed.. The step up to 12f worked the oracle for DELLBOUY LTO and the manner of victory suggested that it was well ahead of its new mark of 67. Thane Of Cawdor put in its best performance over this trip back in April and I am surprised that Liam Keniry, the usual poison of choice for the stable opts to ride Yes Chef.

My short list of The Wonga Coup, BROWN PETE, Buaiteoir, Quadriga, Dolly Colman and Lishane Bog have been whittled down to Dolly Colman, BROWN PETE and The Wonga Coup when considering their respective performances over the trip in the 3:15. LTO The Wonga Coup put it in its best performance for some time over C&D heralding a return to form over the trip that has seen all three of its victories. The win to run ratio for Dolly Colman is a big negative. BROWN PETE finished its race well LTO after being given to much to do and it is no surprise to see William Carson, the jockey who has been successful on its last three wins back in the saddle for the first time since January.

In the finale we have what I believe might well be the stand out bet of the day. INTERAKT in amongst a moderate bunch of individuals has been running mainly over 5f and 6f prior to being stepped up to 10f LTO. You would expect a horse with sprint credentials to be prominent but INTERAKT was kept to the rear before making headway beaten by a never nearer 4.5 lengths. The performance looks pleasing on the clock and although we are unlikely to see the 50-1 it went off at LTO is good value at 10’s on the exchanges.

Have a good day and enjoy your racing J
