Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield and Taunton on Sunday…
“…he can defy a penalty to complete a double.”
Timeform on Charles Kingsley
Chica De La Noche has been firmly knocking on the door in recent months, hitting the frame in each of her last five outings, and her turn could finally come this time off her current mark. Astrospeed chased home an upwardly mobile type on debut for his new yard last time and is respected, whilst Violet’s Lads is another to consider.
Charles Kingsley was an emphatic winner on debut at Beverley in September, and whilst he admittedly didn’t beat much that day, the fact he was able to score by 11 lengths suggests he’s better than this company, and he can defy a penalty to complete a double. Gates Pass and Beauty Salon are the obvious dangers unless there’s a big improver lurking.
Posh Trish is quickly turned back out after scoring at Wincanton on Boxing Day, and she remains the one to beat at this level with more improvement highly likely. She can win again at the expense of Indefatigable, who scored in good style at Uttoxeter in November, and Passing Call – who was behind the selection at Newbury at the beginning of the month.
