  • Lingfield Best Bet: Vetiver Carries Each Way Hopes As Remarquee Looks To Dominate

Lingfield best bet: Vetiver carries each-way hopes as Remarquee looks to dominate

With the Oaks and Derby Trials out of the way, the fillies take centre stage again, with the Chartwell Stakes looking like it could well provide one of the most competitive races on Lingfield’s card.

15:35 Lingfield:  William Hill Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes (7 furlongs)

While Marco Botti’s Great Generation is strongly fancied to turn this into a two-horse race, all the evidence suggests that she and the other seven hopefuls will have to give second best the early favourite Remarquee here.

A winner on debut in 2022, Ralph Beckett’s filly took that form seamlessly into her three-year-old campaign, marking her 2023 debut with another decent victory in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury.

After disappointing in the 1000 Guineas, she showed her capabilities as a 25/1 outsider at Royal Ascot, where she found only the impressive odds-on favourite Tahiyra too strong for her, beaten by just a length in the Coronation Stakes.

She put in another couple of decent second and fourth-placed performances in Group 1 affairs, and although not seen since July, she is expected to hit the ground running on her eagerly anticipated reappearance against group 3 opposition here.

Connections have high hopes for a productive year ahead for Remarquee, and assuming she wintered well and that her wind op has the desired effect, this race could give her campaign a flying start.

Suggested best bet: Remarquee in the 15:35 at Lingfield

 

Much like the Derby Trial, the top-heavy betting market helps enhance the place value of the principals’ seven rivals, which has certainly given Tipstrr’s each-way specialists plenty of food for thought.

A couple to have caught their collective eye are Born To Rock and Les Bleus, the latter of which looks particularly interesting at a huge price after following a few near misses last season with a decent showing in an all-weather pipe-opener at Kempton last month.

However, the final seal of each-way approval goes to Vetiver, who will be looking to dispel the memory of a disappointing run in the Lincoln at Doncaster seven weeks ago, although the mile trip in heavy conditions could be used as a one-off disclaimer there..

Andrew Balding’s four-year-old did win over an extended mile at Beverley last April, but she appears more suited over this shorter trip, as she has proved before and since, most recently when landing a 10-runner Listed event at Carlisle last June in similar conditions to those she can expect here.

She rounded off last season by outracing her 25/1 price to finish fifth of 20 in the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot, finishing strongly to come within three lengths of the winner, The Gatekeeper.

David Probert gets the ride, and with Balding’s yard boasting a 50 percent place rate, both this season and at Lingfield over the last five years, then it won’t be a huge shock to see Vetiver bounce back from Doncaster to be in contention for a frame finish here. 

Each-way punt: Vetiver in the 15:35 at Lingfield
