4.35 LINGFIELD 32 RED 2 MILE CONDITION STAKES :
11 runners declared for £25,000 32Red 2 mile condition stakes at Lingfield ,this looks quite competitive looking staying event with the three main contenders .Castilo Del Diablo,Litigant & Ted Spread .
CASTILO DEL DIABLO :Progressive 5 year old gelding on poly track .Won 12 furlong class two handicap at Lingfield in January beating the useful filly Modernstone by neck off mark 95 .Also ran creditable second behind Modernstone last time in 12 furlong conditions race at Lingfield ,trying to concede 6LB.However is unproven over this longer trip .
LITIGANT :Promising sort for Andre Fabre back in 2011 winning two condition races over 11 & 14 furlongs .Changed hands very cheaply at Doncaster sales in 2012 for £18,500 .Finished eyecatching second on his first start for Seamus Durack in 11 furlong class two handicap at Kempton in November .Followed that with impressive performance at Wolvehampton last time winning 14 furlong handicap off mark 90 .Still very lightly raced and looks open to plenty improvement .
TED SPREAD :Decent sort for Mark Tompkins back in 2010 ,including winning in group 3 company .Lost his way on flat after that and was switched to the hurdles ,winning handicap hurdle for Paul Nicholls in 2012.Finished very creditable third on his first start on flat for Suzy Smith in January ,only beaten half lengh by useful Arch Villian over C&D in course record time .Each-way claims with conditions to suit .
VERDICT: Castilo Del Diablo has highest official rating (98),after winning decent 12 furlong handicap at Lingfield in January ,though there has to be major doubt about this longer trip.Having been well beaten on both starts over 14 + furlongs last season on the turf .
The lightly raced LITIGANT looks open to plenty more improvement after just five starts .Was impressive winner last time in 14 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton .The longer trip shouldn't be problem here and looks the one to beat .Odds around 3-1 look good value .
Of the others Ted Spread could go well at decent odds after running very good third last time over C&D in course record time .
