Lingfield Mixed Card

Paladin was withdrawn while Grand Rapids came up only 5th. The latter shows encouraging signs in the end by keeping on and with this debut race behind him, I think he looks to be a nice horse over further. Certainly one to watch in his next races, although a 5th today is disappointing given the withdrawal of his stablemate and the fact that this race had a lot of exposed hoses. He needed the run, as they say.

On Wednesday, the 15:30 race at Lingfield should go between El Muqbil from the Meehan stable, and Godolphin's Burj Hatta. I give a slight edge to Dettori's mount but it can go either way. I recommend both as Place. The one that could spoil the party is Lupa Montana, a Giant's Causeway filly that finished well in 7th place on her debut after having dwelt at the start. For those willing to take on some risk, Lupa Montana might be good value to follow at current odds of over 10/1.

Place: El Muqbil, Burj Hatta
