Not much luck so far this week with Fridays bet ABBONDANZA finishing second beaten neck in another close finish ,ran decent enough race though just couldn't catch Punching who held on by neck.LOSS £53.00 / 0.53 PTS.
On to Saturdays racing we have two flat cards weather permitting, Lingfield hold an early morning inspection at 6.45 am,hopefully there meeting will get the go ahead with couple decent looking races including 10f listed contest ,the other meeting at Southwell looks very poor card for Saturday with very few runners again.
6F 2-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 LINGFIELD 11.50
CAPTAIN DIMITRIOS : Won 6f seller at Newbury back in July making all ,consistent form since finishing 2ND three times ,ran good forth last time claimer at Kempton behind Rosina Grey ,that looked decent claimer with 2ND ,3RD, 5TH,6TH& 7TH all winning races.Should go well in this much weaker claimer.
VERDICT : CAPTAIN DIMITRIOS stands out in this claimer after running plenty decent races this season in better class races.AROWANA looks the main danger after finishing fair 2ND in 6f claimer at Wolverhampton .
1 MILE 2F LISTED STAKES CLASS 1 LINGFIELD 1.55
SUITS ME : Decent front runner ,finished 2ND in this race the last two years only beaten short head last year behind Tranquil Tiger,also finished credible 2ND in this years G3 winter Derby in March again behind Tranquil Tiger,back to form last time finishing fair 3RD in listed race behind the useful Nadeeb.
VERDICT : Not the strongest listed race.SUITS ME is the only listed race winner in the field and goes particularly well at Lingfield,and should go well from front. CHAPTER AND VERSE & AKHMATOVA are both improving types and look possible dangers ,though will have to improve again to win this listed contest.
