Good start to the year with Powerful Pierre winning 6 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton on Thursday at 3-1 for £180.00 profit .Given excellent ride by Jacob Butterfield .
Moving on to Saturday for days best bet on All Weather ,we go to Lingfield for 10 furlong 0-70 classified claimer at 11.50 .
12 runners declared for competitive 10 furlong 0-70 classified claimer. The three main contenders here look to be Ocean Applause , Copperwood & Gabrial The Boss .
OCEAN APPLAUSE : Inconsistent 4 year old gelding ,though returned to form last time, winning 1 mile seller at Lingfield beating Prime Exhibit . Not badly treated at weights ,though this longer trip is major concern .
COPPERWOOD : Course specialist with six wins at Lingfield .Returned to form winning seller over C&D last month beating Honey Of Kitten .Finished fifth of 8 in 1 mile seller behind Ocean Applause last time ,though not given the best of rides by inexperienced 7lb claimer . Will be suited returning to this longer trip .
GABRIAL THE BOSS : Dual course winner ,landed four timer around this time last year ,including handicap over C&D off mark 74 .Back to form last time finishing second in 1 mile claimer at Kempton behind Wake Up Little Suzy,with Ocean Applause back in third . Looks very well treated off 8 stone 1lb.
VERDICT : GABRIAL THE BOSS had some fair form last season and looked on the way back last time at Kempton and makes plenty appeal in claimer off bottom weight .Odds around 9-2 look very fair value .
Ocean Applause has to be respected ,though would made more appeal over 1 mile , has never really convinced over 10 furlongs and has to reverse form with Gabrial The Boss
Copperwood has fair record at Lingfield and has each-way claims returning to this longer trip with Jimmy Quinn replacing the inexperienced 7lb claimer.
