On Saturday we are back on All Weather for decent card at Lingfield,featuring two Fast Track Qualifiers on the poly track .Going concentrate on the big sprint at 3.15.

11 runners declared for Golden Rose Listed stakes over 6 furlongs .This looks very decent All Weather sprint .The three main contenders look to be Mythmaker , Mazzini & Spring Loaded.

MYTHMAKER : 5-Y-0 Bay gelding,winning 1 out 11 on All Weather (Finished 2ND ,five times ) Had some decent form on All Weather last season ,including finishing second in this race last year .Also finished close second in Cleves Stakes over C&D at Lingfield .Goes well here at Lingfield ,should be thereabouts .

MAZZINI : 4-Y-0 Chestnut gelding ,winning 3 out 10 on All Weather.Been running consistently this season , including bolting up in class three 6f handicap at Chelmsford in July .Also finished creditable second in class 2 7f conditions race at Chelmsford last time .Will be suited returning to 6f trip  .Solid each-way claims .

SPRING LOADED : 5-Y-0 Grey gelding ,winning 8 out 14 on All Weather .Has useful record on All Weather ,including winning 2 out 2 at Lingfield over C&D .Also Been in fair form on turf ,winning the Portland Handicap in good style in September,off mark 92 .Will be suited returning to All Weather at Lingfield ,though trainer Paul D'Arcy struggling for winners (1 out 48 ) since July .

VERDICT : Spring Loaded has excellent strike rate on All Weather 8 out 14 ,will be popular after winning twice over C&D at Lingfield last season ,though was disappointing at York last time ,when finishing well beaten tenth .Odds around 10/3 look short enough, for stable struggling for winners ,

At the prices MAZZINI looks the each-way value .Has been running well all season on all weather ,including finishing creditable second behind (108) rated Steady Pace at Chelmsford last time over 7f .Will be suited returning to this shorter trip ,all three victories coming over this 6f trip .Odds around 5-1 look solid each-way value ,especially with Skybet paying 4 places .

GOLDRUSH : Three-year-old (1.7 million) Frankel filly,unbeaten in two starts ,including winning 8F maiden in good style at Navan in September .Looked well suited stepping up to 10.5F last time at Dundalk ,winning the Carlingford listed Stakes.Looks very progressive filly ,sure to win more races .

BELLE BOYD : Three-year-old Oasis Dream filly , winning 1 out 4 .Won 8F maiden at Naas in July by easy 6 lenghs (Not the strongest looking maiden)However showed improved form on her handicap debut last time ,finishing staying on second in decent looking 7F handicap at Dundalk .Takes step up in class,though will be suited returning to this longer trip .
