Lingfield best bets: All Agleam to shine under Oisin Murphy, Different Breed targets frame finish

Lingfield’s all-weather track provides the setting for a decent card on Tuesday afternoon, and this competitive seven-furlong sprint promises to give faithful race-goers plenty to cheer about.

The Andrew Balding/Oisin Murphy partnership has been a tough act to beat this season, and that looks likely to remain the case when they team up with All Agleam on Tuesday.

Just one win in nine attempts does not tell the full story for this promising three-year-old filly, whose solitary success came over this course and distance back in January.

Prior to that win, she had been placed in each of her previous five juvenile outings, and she has shown promising signs of progress in her two subsequent efforts.

She looked in need of the run when emerging from a 20-week break to finish fourth of five on season debut at Chester in May, but with the cobwebs well and truly blown away, she looked much more in tune at Chelmsford last time out a month ago.

All Agleam was no match for the winner that day, but all the same she left six capable handicappers in behind, and with Murphy having learned more about his charge’s capabilities, they should go well again off a reasonable mark.

The early market suggests that the Osborne team’s Ten Commitments and bottom-weight Never Dream are likely to pose the biggest threat to the favourite, but catching the collective eye of Tipstrr’s each-way specialists are the double-digit odds against the name of Different Breed.

Simon Hodgson’s young colt could well be flying under the radar of bookies whose calculations may have based his price on the strength of two excusable sub-par performances so far this term.

He clearly hated the unsuitable heavy ground at Chester on his season debut in May, while at Kempton last time out four weeks ago, the pace of that shorter six-furlong affair meant he never really got the chance to recover from a sluggish break from the stalls.

Prior to his winter break, Different Breed had been in great form on synthetic tracks, putting together an impressive sequence of results (23221), culminating in a dominant win over this course and distance in January.

The way he found extra off the bend and down the stretch suggested that he prefers this longer seven-furlong trip, and with his winning rider that day, Trevor Whelan, returning to the saddle here, everything points to a more competitive performance.
