Timeform pick out three bets from Lingfield on Tuesday evening…
“She certainly showed enough to suggest she is on a fair mark…”
Timeform on Caravela
With question marks hanging over the majority of his rivals, Caribbean Spring is fancied to complete the hat-trick. The five-year-old escapes a penalty for his victory in an apprentice handicap at Wolverhampton last week and is actually 1 lb lower on this occasion, with Jane Elliott able to make full use of her 3 lb claim here, too. Soaring Spirits figures on a feasible mark but appears to more effective over shorter trips nowadays and Tigerfish may prove most troublesome if on a going day.
Life On Earth stepped up markedly on her debut form when fifth at Leicester last week, missing the creak but catching the eye with the progress she made under a hand-and-heels ride late on. She remains open to more improvement after just two starts, especially now stepping up another furlong in trip, and it would be no surprise if she were to take this before going on to better things given her looks/pedigree. Sharg looks the part on paper and may emerge as the main danger.
Caravela shaped better than the bare result when fourth on her return at Brighton last month, forced to deliver her challenge from further back than ideal after a slow start and doing well, all things considered, to be beaten just three and a quarter lengths. She certainly showed enough to suggest she is on a fair mark and may yet to better with that outing under her belt, in terms of both fitness and professionalism, so could be the way to go ahead of recent Windsor second Falcon Cliffs.
