The betting bankroll stands at £3061 (+1061) ,after Oh This Is Us finished unplaced in Hyde stakes at Kempton .Dropping away tamely in closing stages .
Been disappointing run of results since August with the bankroll dropping from £3769 to £3061 after losing run of 7 bets.Stakes drop down to £122.00
Hopefully we can finish the year on positive note.Moving on to Saturday we have decent little listed race on polyrack from Lingfield Park.
5 runners declared for Quebec Stakes over 10f on the poly track .Small but select field with just five runners going to post .
DALGARNO : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 12 .Returned to form last time winning 9.5f listed race on poly track at Deauville in France ,not easy to weigh up that form, though didn't look the strongest listed race .No easy task under 3lb penalty,others preferred .
COURT HOUSE : 4-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 3 out 10 on All Weather .Had some decent form last season on All Weather ,including finishing second in Winter Derby over C&D at Lingfield in February.Not ran since last April ,when well beaten 6th in Easter Classic .Been gelded since ,though somthing to prove after 8 month absence .
KASBAAN : 4-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 3 out 6 on All Weather .Very consistent sort ,winning twice at Kempton in September .Been running consistently since ,including finishing close second behind Dubai Warrior last month,though no easy task at these weights .
VICTORY BOND : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 11 on All Weather .Goes particarly well here at Lingfield (15122),including winning the Easter Classic back in 2018 on AW Finals day .Returned to form last time at Lingfield,winning class two handicap over C&D,off mark 100 .Back up in class ,though very rarely runs bad race here at Lingfield
DUBAI WARRIOR : 3-Y-0 Bay Gelding,winning 3 out 4 on All Weather.Useful sort with excellent record on All Weather,including winning 10f class two handicap at Chelmsford last time, with Kasbaan & Victory Bond behind .Yet to race at Lingfield ,though looks well treated in this listed contest .
VERDICT : Dubai Warrior is sure be popular after winning in good style at Chelmsford last time .Meets his two main rivals on 5lb better terms here.Looks the one to beat on these terms ,though odds around 4-6 are very short for horse that was turned over at 2-5,off mark 98 in small size field earlier in season .
VICTORY BOND should go well after winning cosily at Lingfield earlier this month ,has bit to find with Dubai Warrior on previous Chelmsford form,though that was his first run for nearly 7 months .Clearly improved for that race when beating Kasbaan at Linfield last time .Odds around 4-1 look very fair value .
