Lingfield - Wednesday 19th December 2018

1 11:40 AM - Handicap

False Id has been raised 3lb for scoring over this trip at Newcastle two weeks ago and is weighted to go well if his wide draw doesn't inconvenience him. Preference, however, is for MAAZEL, who was thwarted by a neck over track and trip last time and returns on the same mark. The unexposed Cape Greco is a potential improver now sent handicapping, while Frank Cool, a recent 6f second at Kempton, is also considered now upped in trip.

2 12:10 PM - EBF/Ladbrokes Fillies' Novice Stakes (Plus 10) (Div 1)

Dove Divine improved on her debut effort last time and arguably sets the standard on that 1m fourth at Chelmsford. If running to a similar level over this shorter trip then she'll likely finish on the premises. However, it may be worth taking a chance on one of the newcomers in the field. Roger Varian's Invitational commands respect, though narrow preference is for John Gosden's 120,000gns recruit MAXIMUM EFFECT, who is a half-sister to the smart Kachy.

3 12:40 PM - EBF/Ladbrokes Fillies' Novice Stakes (Plus 10) (Div 2)

DIAMOND OASIS struggled to land a blow in the finish over the extended 5f first time out at York in July but the experience gained is unlikely to have been lost on her and she's one to consider now stepped up in trip with the benefit of a run under her belt. Beehaar and Wallaa are similarly expected to step up on their debut performances, while any money for newcomers Cozi Bay and Mina Vagante would be notable.

4 1:15 PM - Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Nursery

TIMES PAST (second) was behind Woodside Wonder at Kempton last time out, but there is an 11lb swing in the weights now with the winner's penalty taken into account and Tom Greatrex's 5lb claim, so the positions are fancied to be reversed. Blue Mountain has finished as a beaten favourite the last twice and was particularly disappointing when last seen in October, while Autumn Splendour failed to concede weight all round in a conditions race at Salisbury last time but should find this easier.

5 1:50 PM - Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap

BILLYOAKES won this race last year off 1lb higher and could bounce back to form now under Luke Morris for the first time in almost 12 months. The six-year-old has a solid record at this track and now could be the time to catch Charlie Wallis' charge. Veteran Swiss Cross seldom runs a bad race here, while Little Miss Lilly has posted two solid efforts since successful at Kempton in October and completes the shortlist.

6 2:25 PM - EBF/Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Novice Stakes

Equal Sum is a half-sister to four winners and kept on well to score on debut at Wolverhampton, while Mosakhar did a lot of solid work late in the day on his first start at Newcastle two weeks ago and could take a big step forward for his powerful connections. Entitle is a half-sister to Enable but looked very inexperienced on her Newmarket debut back in June, and perhaps her stablemate VEGATINA is worth a shot on debut. A 220,000gns yearling, her dam was a 1m winner and it is worth noting that she is also a half-sister to a Group 3 winner.

7 2:55 PM - Betway Stayers Handicap

TIDAL WATCH is a three-time winner over hurdles for a powerful operation and definitely has a race of this nature within his compass judged on his second at Kempton over 1m4f last month. He has since performed well over timber at Kempton and the manner in which he was staying on into second two starts back suggests he'll thrive going up in trip. Kyoto Star is an unexposed quantity who should go well, likewise Dance To Paris and Nafaayes.

8 3:25 PM - Betway Apprentice Handicap

PERFECT REFUGE has held her form well since winning on turf at Windsor in September and she's difficult to get away from. Not beaten far on three subsequent starts, including at this track over 10 furlongs, she remains on a workable mark and Amelia Glass takes off 7lb in the plate, so everything points to a bold showing from the Clive Cox inmate. Presence Process and Ourmullion are expected to put up most resistance.
