In Saturday we do have very decent looking card from Lingfield featuring the group three Winter Derby,plus two good looking listed races .
A maximum field of fourteen go to post for group three Winter Derby at 3.50.The Jeremy Noseda trained GRANDEUR stands out here on form,having won twice in group two company and was good winner over C&D in winter Derby Trial at Lingfield last month .Looks the one they all have to beat ,though has to overcome poor draw in stall 14.
For days main bet we concentrate on Hever Sprint Listed Stakes at 2.40 .This looks competitive five furlong listed race, with the three main contenders .Addictive Dream , Kingsgate Choice & Ladies Are Forever .
2.40 LINGFIELD 5F HEVER LISTED SPRINT STAKES
ADDICTIVE DREAM : Dual course winner here at Lingfield .Bolted up last time (Making All) over C&D in class two handicap at Lingfield, beating Ubetterbegood by just under three lenghs off mark 98.Has yet to win in listed company ,though looks well drawn in stall three for front runner and could take some pegging back .
KINGSGATE CHOICE :Fair sprinter on his day ,won twice last season on turf, in hot class two handicaps at York and Musselburgh ,though probably ran best race, when finishing close fourth in Flying Five group three at Curragh in September, behind Dutch Masterpiece.Lightly raced on poly track ,though has won over C&D at Lingfield .
LADIES ARE FOREVER :Decent Six year old mare.Goes well here at Lingfield.Bolted up in this race last year, breaking the course record.Also won Group three 6 furlong Summer Stakes at York in July .Slightly disappointing last time on her seasonal reappearance, finishing 6th of 12 at Lingfield behind Tarooq .Should improve for that first run of the season .
VERDICT : Last years winner LADIES ARE FOREVER can bounce back to form and win Hever Sprint for second year running .Has proven record in listed company and can land her fourth listed race .Odds around 4-1 look very fair value .
Kingsgate Choice can go well fresh and looks the main danger on his decent turf form from last season . Having won class two handicap at Musselburgh off mark 104 ,won't need to improve much to win in listed race .
