Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield on Friday…
“…Tom Clover’s new recruit certainly looks handicapped to win a race of this nature…”
Timeform on Daring Guest
ENCHANTING MAN showed plenty to work on when third on his debut at Newcastle two weeks ago, deserving extra credit given that he forced the pace and also lost momentum when the winner edged across him close home. He looks sure to improve with that initial experience under his belt and is fancied to bridge the gap to the standard-setter on ratings, Lady Cosette, who produced a career best on her sixt start when second in a nursery at Kempton last time.
WOTADOLL was a comfortable winner of her penultimate start over C&D and shaped as if still in good form when fourth in a better-class handicap at Chelmsford last time, just a bit to free early to see it out fully. This looks a more suitable test and, only 2 lb higher than when winning here earlier in the month, she looks sure to take plenty of stopping. Global Humor, dropped back to a sprint trip, and the returning Miracle Garden head up the dangers.
DARING GUEST was well backed and duly shaped encouragingly when fourth on his stable debut here three weeks ago, making good headway to lead over a furlong out, before tiring and losing three places in the latter stages. The drop back to seven furlongs here should be in his favour on that evidence, and Tom Clover’s new recruit certainly looks handicapped to win a race of this nature; he is now well below his last winning mark and 4 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings in a weak contest.
