On Friday afternoon we are back at Lingfield,for class two handicap on the poly track at 3.40 .
9 Runners declared for the Sunbets handicap over 7 furlongs .Not the the strongest looking class two handicap at Lingfield .The three main contenders look to be Suqoor ,Intransigent & Horsted Keynes .
SUQOOR : Four year old gelding , winning 2 out 14 ( 2 out 8 on All Weather ) ,including winning over C&D at Lingfield .Finished fair third in 6 furlong class two handicap at Lingfield last time.Will be suited returning to this longer trip .Looks fairly treated off mark 89 .Each-way claims .
INTRANSIGENT :Eight year old gelding ,winning 8 out 62 ( 5 out 28 on All Weather ) Been in decent form this winter,winning 7 furlong class 3 handicap at Kempton in January,off mark 90 .Also finished creditable second ,behind the useful My Target at Lingfield last time .Should go well ,though faces stiffer task with jockey Rob Hornby, having lost his 3LB claim .
HORSTED KEYNES : Seven Year Old gelding ,winning 4 out 34 ( 3 out 15 on All Weather ) Not won since April 2014 ,though returned to form in January finishing creditable third at Lingfield,behind subsequent winner Chevallier.Also finished close third in valuable class 2 handicap at Newcastle last time .Solid claims off 1LB higher mark .
VERDICT : HORSTED KEYNES looked on the way back last time ,finishing good third in hot class two £32,000 handicap at Newcastle (staying on well at finish) . Has previously shown some useful form on All Weather for former trainer Roger Varian,including winning over C&D at Lingfield .Can land his first victory for nearly three years ,in this weaker looking class two handicap .Odds around 7-2 with Bet365 & Betvictor look fair value .
