14:00 (Lingfield) Louisiana Bay

Louisiana Bay backed up a narrow Southwell success with an excellent second tackling this trip at Wolverhampton.

Can return to winning ways under three-time champion jockey Oisin Murphy in the Enjoy The Racing App For Free Handicap.

With three wins on the all weather Beat The Heat warrants interest revisiting the flat having last been seen in this sphere securing victory at Bath in August.

Largo Bay may give a good account following a decent third-placed finish over 1m4f at Kempton, while Fullforward needs each-way consideration.


16:05 (Lingfield) Arthur’s Realm

Arthur’s Realm returned to form when third in Doncaster’s Spring Mile last month and the Trustee Fire & Security Ltd Handicap looks another fine opportunity.

Ed Dunlop’s runner hit the frame on a number of occasions last year but has not actually got his head in front since April 2022.

However, there was much to like about his threequarter-length third in a competitive heat on Town Moor, particularly as he did not enjoy a totally clear run, and a 2lb rise might not be enough to anchor him.


16:40 (Lingfield) Hannah's Return

Hannah's Return made it three wins from her past six outings delivering a smooth success over course and distance in latest.

Might secure a good early spot from stall three and follow up revisiting handicap company in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap.

Moorgate finished runner-up that day and holds obvious claims once more.

Five-time course winner Nordic Glory cannot be ignored having produced a solid second-placed finish at Wolverhampton.

Admirable Lad continues to run well over this distance and could be in the mix.


17:15 (Lingfield) Soldiers Design

The lightly raced handicap debutant Soldiers Design is a John Ryan trained filly. Finished runner-up on stable debut attempting a five furlong maiden at Kempton last time and looks on a workable opening mark with improvement expected.

Narrow Southwell winner Via Blanca could remain competitive off this revised rating.

It would be tough to ignore Gogo Yubari who is two from three at this venue and ran well when third at Chelmsford last week.

Law Of Average scored readily over five furlongs at Chelmsford in November and must be considered.

LINGFIELD: 2.00 Louisiana Bay, 2.30 Viennoise, 3.00 Doddie’s Impact, 3.30 Falmouth Bay, 4.05 Arthur’s Realm, 4.40 Hannah's Return, 5.15 Soldiers Design.
