SECRECY could only finish disappointing 4TH in listed Marshall stakes ,behind his seemingly unfancied stablemate Kingsfort a 10-1 shot ,SECRECY was very well supported in market 11-4 into 15-8 ,though in the race itself was well of pace in the early stages,and never really picked up, finishing well beaten 4TH. Loss -£150 / 1.50 PTS
Sunday we have just the one flat card on poly track at Lingfield ,though there looks interesting 1 mile 2f claimer at 2.15
1 MILE 2F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 LINGFIELD 2.15
LANG SHINING : Excellent record in claimers this season winning 6 times since June.Won over C/D at Lingfield last month beating fair sort for this grade Orchard Supreme by 1.25 lenghs.Goes well for Sophie Doyle and should go well.
VERDICT :LANG SHINING & AHLAWY look very closely matched at weights. AHLAWY won class 4 handicap last time at Wolverhampton, though not the most consistent of performers and not the greatest record in claimers 1 win from 6 starts.C/D winner LANG SHINING is more reliable sort and has such good record in claimers 6 wins from 9 starts.At the prices LANG SHINING looks the better value bet at around 7-2 mark.
LANG SHINING 2.15 LINGFIELD
Slightly shorter odds than I was expecting, though still worth bet at 3-1
£50 EACH /WAY / 0.50 PTS EACH/ WAY
@ 3-1 BET 365 ,STAN JAMES ,PADDY POWER.
