Lingfield is one of two afternoon meetings on Saturday, with the venue also hosting the vast majority of the terrestrial action. Naas is the other meeting on ITV, subject to a morning inspection.
We’ll have ITV Racing Tips for all the feature action, but the spotlight could firmly be on Ryan Moore. The master jockey has five rides and the biggest price is 9/4, so it could be an incredible afternoon for him.
Our views on his rides are below, as Moore bids to set the All-Weather alight.
12.20 Lingfield – Ahdab
Five-race maiden who will struggle to find a better opportunity than this to break his duck. He posted a career-best effort when beaten a short-head off a mark of 73 in a course and distance handicap earlier this month.
Back in novice company, a repeat of that performance should be more than enough after a small break.
12.50 Lingfield – Gurka Girl
A half-sister to 2000 Guineas second Tip Two Win, Roger Teal’s filly made a promising debut with a fourth-place finish over course and distance in December.
She stepped up that performance when second to an empathic winner at Kempton last month and she looks set to continue improving with further experience. If she does take another step forward, she’s entitled to be heavily involved.
1.25 Lingfield – Mummy Bear
A £40,000 purchase, this daughter of Kodi Bear showed a huge amount of inexperience on debut at Chelmsford. She looked far more polished, however, when finishing a good second over course and distance two weeks ago.
Further progress is surely on the cards from Richard Hannon’s charge and if she does just that, she’s an obvious player with Moore taking over in the saddle.
2.35 Lingfield – Crackling
Made a winning debut at over seven furlongs here back in December 2018, absent for 681 days prior to a well-held fourth at Kempton. He was entitled to need that, however, and posted a much improved effort when second at Southwell.
He went down by just a head that day and a slow start likely cost him the race. Raised just three pounds for that, he can surely make amends today for Martyn Meade.
3.10 Lingfield – Convertible
Made a winning handicap debut at Redcar back in November, coming back to form in two recent course and distance starts. He’s been defeated by just a length in those two aforementioned runs, latterly headed in the dying strides.
His mark has been left unchanged and he remains thoroughly unexposed after just seven career starts. Hugo Palmer’s string are in excellent form and he’s an obvious player.
