Two flat cards on Friday at Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,though very disappointing turn out for 6 furlong claiming stakes at Lingfield with just five runners going to post.
1.25 LINGFIELD 6F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6
Just five runners for 6F claiming stakes at Lingfield and this looks two horse race between Hinton Admiral & Drawnfromthepast .
Hinton Admiral : Good record in claiming company with 5 wins from 13 starts ,returned to form last time winning 7 furlong seller here at Lingfield .Looks sure to go well in this weak claimer.
Drawnfromthepast : Won 6 furlong class 3 handicap off mark 89 back in July for Ed Walker ,though hasn't reproduced that form,and has looked bit disappointing for Jamie Osborne on his last two starts.
VERDICT :Strictly on official handicap ratings Drawnfromthepast is the one to beat being rated 85 ,though has failed to deliver on last four starts in claiming company .
HINTON ADMIRAL looks more solid having won five times in claiming company and looks the one to beat .Odds around 5-4 don't make great appeal and not betting race for me.
