Alan Dudman had no runners yesterday following the cancellation of Exeter, however he returns for Saturday’s motion with alternatives at Lingfield and Sandown…
Elusive to enhance for the brand new journey at Lingfield
The 12:00 handicap over 1m2f revolves across the Mark Johnston-trained Coupe De Champagne – who has already had a go over course and distance with a latest positioned effort. But with a score of simply 68 is not any world-beater.
This should not actually take plenty of successful, which is why I’m blissful to again Andrew Balding’s filly Damned Elusive.
She is by Sir Percy, so stepping as much as 1m2f for Saturday will nearly actually go well with. In reality trying at her pedigree, she is going to need even additional. But she produced a greater effort at Wolverhampton final time and goes handicapping from simply 66.
She can enhance, however I need to oppose Coupe De Champagne as her race final time was run at a gentle tempo.
Moonlighter can get all of them on the stretch
13:50 Sandown – Back Moonlighter @ 4.507/2
Moonlighter’s glorious second within the Haldon Gold Cup to Greaneteen appears a critical piece of type, and is effectively price backing on Sandown’s Saturday card.
The Exeter race over 2m2f noticed him assault out in entrance, and ways increase a rhythm over the fences ought to actually go well with. He must iron out his leaping barely to the left although.
He appears to be fairly effectively thought to be he ran within the Kingmaker and received a pleasant race at Newbury as a novice.
Heavy situations will go well with too trying at his pedigree, because it’s an all-out delicate floor household. From 147 and high weight it will not be straightforward, however together with his run model I give him an opportunity.
