14:00 (Lingfield) Harry Brown

14:30 (Lingfield) Borough

15:00 (Lingfield) Naval College

15:30 (Lingfield) One Step Beyond

16:00 (Lingfield) Love Poems

14:00 (Lingfield) Harry Brown

The David Simcock-trained Harry Brown looks to have been found an ideal opportunity to get off the mark at the fifth time of asking.

He's run with credit on all starts to date, most recently finishing third at Thirsk where he didn't get the clearest of passages. The booking of Ryan Moore for newcomer Sabah Al Ward catches the eye and any market support would be significant.

George Boughey continues to have has string in fine order and his Sporting Hero wasn't disgraced when fifth on debut behind Noble Style.

15:00 (Lingfield) Naval College

Naval College takes the eye as he returns to action in Lingfield's Follow @attheraces On Twitter Novice Stakes.

Owned by the Queen and trained by Sir Michael Stoute, Naval College was gelded before he even hit the track in April this year, coming home fourth at the first attempt before twice finishing second in May, most notably behind Missed The Cut on his penultimate start.

The son of Dartmouth has been off the track since and while Stoute could have taken the handicap route, it is interesting to see Naval College have another try in this company.

15:30 (Lingfield) One Step Beyond

One Step Beyond is on a roll and can make it a hat-trick in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap.

A winner at Lingfield and Wolverhampton over the last few weeks, he keeps finding a bit more when asked and given the comfortable manner of his latest success, he might not have hit his ceiling yet.

Previous course and distance winners Prince Rock and Noble Peace are others to consider, along with Jade Country, who returned to form with a good third at this venue following wind surgery.
