For Friday's main bet we go to Lingfield for interesting looking 7 furlong claimer at 1.00
1.00 LINGFIELD 7 FURLONG CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6:
9 runners declared for 7 furlong claimer on poly track at Lingfield .This doesn't look bad claimer for this grade ,with the three main contenders : Capail Liath ,Mr David & Kuanyao.
CAPAIL LIATH : Fair performer on his day ,winning three times in 2013 .Won 7 furlong claimer at Kempton in December .Also finished fair second last time behind useful claiming performer Tellovoi.Not badly treated at the weights and should be thereabouts .
MR DAVID : Inconsistent 7 year old gelding ,though more than capable in this grade .Won class three handicap over C&D in December off mark 82.Also finished close fourth last time in class 4 handicap over C/D off mark 85 .Obvious claims if reproducing that form ,though doesn't have greatest record in claiming company 1 out 6 .
KUANYAO : Excellent record on poly track winning 6 out 12 .Goes well here at Lingfield winning three times .Ran shocker last time finishing last of seven in 6 furlong handicap at Lingfield ,though will be suited returning to claiming company .
VERDICT : Mr David is 4LB clear on official ratings ,and would be difficult to beat if reproducing his recent C&D handicap form ,though has been beaten on his last four starts in claiming company and looks worth opposing at around 11-8
KUANYAO will need bounce back after poor run last time ,though has excellent record on poly track 6 out 12 and is unbeaten in claimers 2 out 2 .Will not be inconvenienced by the return to 7 furlongs .Odds around 5-1 look good each-way value .
