Lingfield - Monday 9th December 2019

1 12:00 PM - Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Maiden Fillies' Stakes (Plus 10)

ISLAND HIDEAWAY progressed nicely from his debut to take fourth at Kempton in October and showed further improvement again when second at Chelmsford last month. John Gosden has two in the race with Chelmsford sixth Agreed and newcomer Ocean Pearl, who fetched 275,000 guineas at the sales. They both require a market check, while Roger Varian's Aqrab and the Charlie Appleby-trained Beauty Stone are others to note.

2 12:30 PM - Bombardier 'March To Your Own Drum' Classified Stakes

Snooker Jim ran a decent race when third at Newcastle latest and could be a factor, though it may be worth siding with AGENT OF FORTUNE. Results haven't been great for the daughter of Kheleyf recently, but her handicap mark has dropped as a result, enabling her to take part in this contest. Perhaps the switch from Christine Dunnett to Gary Moore can get her back to her best. Keep It Country Tv wasn't far away at Brighton when last seen and is another to note.

3 1:00 PM - Ladbrokes Where The Nation Plays / EBF Novice Stakes (Plus 10)

Story Of Light was impressive when building on a promising York debut to score with a fair bit in hand at Chelmsford last time. Charlie Appleby's gelding merits respect, though giving 6lb to HARRISON POINT could prove too tough. Archie Watson's colt was beaten by just a neck when unfancied on debut at Kempton but any progression from that would make him a major player here. Newcomers Magnificat and Note Bleu are others to consider.

4 1:30 PM - Betyourway At Betway Handicap

THE LACEMAKER certainly wasn't winning out of turn when successful over C&D last time and a 4lb rise for that effort looks fair. She can get the better of fellow last-time-out winner Kath's Lustre, who has a 3lb rise to contend with for her narrow Chelmsford victory but is drawn wide. Aguerooo is slipping to an attractive mark and could take advantage anytime soon.

5 2:00 PM - Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap

Swiss Pride returned to winning ways in claiming company last time and is interesting back in handicap company, though FIZZY FEET may prove a tough nut to crack. David Loughnane's filly missed out by a head over 5f here two starts ago and landed more minor money at Wolverhampton last time. Though there may be some doubts over her resolution in a finish after a string of near-misses recently, this step up in trip is expected to suit. Whisper Aloud has some decent form to her name, while Gold At Midnight is not without claims.

6 2:30 PM - Betway Casino Handicap

Aegeus got off the mark at the fourth attempt for Amanda Perrett and is interesting on his handicap debut on his first start for Jedd O'Keeffe. Wimpole Hall won off 2lb lower at Chelmsford last time, while Just The Man struck off 3lb lower two starts ago but failed to follow up last time, but preference is for SKY DEFENDER. Mark Johnston's colt is rated only 2lb higher than when successful at Bath in May and is entitled to come on for his first start in six months over C&D last time.

7 3:00 PM - Betway Handicap

Watchable might be firmly in the veteran stage, but he showed he retained plenty of his old ability when successful at Newcastle last time. He is expected to make his presence felt, but STAKE ACCLAIM gets the vote instead. Dean Ivory's charge is yet to place in five starts on the all-weather, though that doesn't tell the whole story as he ran well for a long way before finishing fourth in Listed company over 6f here last time. Chelmsford runner-up Gracious John and Kempton third Prince of Rome are others to note.

8 3:30 PM - Betway Live Casino Handicap

C&D winner SOMETHING LUCKY ran promisingly over a furlong further here last time and a 1lb lower mark and the drop to this shorter trip could spark immediate improvement. Coronation Cottage has been in fine form at Wolverhampton and has to be considered if transferring that form to this track, while Chitra has slipped to a mark 3lb lower than when beaten by a length over 6f on turf here in September.
