Race 1 Lingfield 12:15 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 23f

36536551 Imphal
Has sprouted wings since upped in trip, completing the hat-trick with minimum fuss at Huntingdon (25f, good) recently. This is a stiffer assignment under a penalty, but he's clearly on a roll.
12-57exEllie VaughanGary Moorelocked1.88/12/16
36536562 Thirtyfourstitches
Likeable front-runner who scored on debut for new yard at Fontwell. Went down all guns blazing when second to a progressive type at Ascot (21.6f, good to soft) recently and another bold show likely.
11-10Cillin LeonardDr Richard Newlandlocked3.33/12.25/132
365365406 Malinas Island
Improved when fourth of 14 on handicap bow at Wetherby on final start of last season. Failed to make an impact on return at Ffos Las (23.9f, good to soft), but it's still early days for this 6-y-o.
10-8Kevin BroganNeil Mulhollandlocked11/15.5/150
365365547 King Cool
Now 9 lb below last winning mark, but hasn't shaped as though he'll be capitalising on the handicapper's mercy anytime soon judged on his efforts at Fontwell since returning from a break.
10-6Angus CheledaGary Moorelocked14/116/114
3653651011 Soarlikeaneagle
Bagged 25f Fontwell handicap in May and ran has performed with credit both starts this season, latterly third off this mark at Plumpton. Still, he looks vulnerable from a win point of view.
10-0Tabitha WorsleyRichard Rowelocked16/128/175
3653651805 Auenwirbel
Modest hurdler who took advantage of handy mark when landing a 19f selling handicap here in February. Safely held in 4 subsequent starts, though, and yet to fully convince over this sort of trip.
10-11Mitchell BastyanLaura Younglocked16/140/1150
365365408 Timely Gift
Ended 2019 on a high, bagging a couple of handicaps at around this trip. However, he failed to fire on all cylinders last season and Ffos Las reappearance effort wasn't overly encouraging.
10-5Charlie PriceTim Vaughanlocked16/120/125
365365259 Freethinker
Equipped with a first-time tongue strap (retained here), he produced his best effort yet over hurdles when fifth of 12 in a Huntingdon handicap (25f, good to soft) last month. Place possibilities.
10-1Lorcan MurtaghCharlie Longsdonlocked20/114/130
3653651513 Mr Fitzroy
Winless since 2017 and while he's been given a serious chance by the handicapper, it's hard to make a compelling case for this 11-y-o on the back of an inauspicious reappearance at Exeter.
10-0Harriet TuckerJo Davislocked40/125/138
3653652510 Sense Of Adventure
Looks decidedly modest judged on what he's shown, both between the flags and under Rules, and it's easy enough to look elsewhere.
10-0Shane QuinlanLouise Allanlocked40/140/10
365365254 Benny Flies High
Well held in a bumper/novice hurdles and handicap debut display at Huntingdon left much to be desired.
10-13Jack TudorSarah Humphreylocked50/180/160
3653651514 Mickyh
Decent NH pedigree, but hasn't shown much in a handful of novice hurdles and needs to raise his game considerably now pitched into a handicap with a tongue strap added.
10-0Ben Ffrench DavisAdam Westlocked66/125/162
3653652515 Givehimhisdew
Poor maiden who looks set for another struggle here, from 8 lb out of the handicap proper.
10-0Joe AndersonKatharine Davislocked100/1200/1100
There are 13 runners in this race.

Race 2 Lingfield 12:45 Handicap Chase (Class 5) 24f

365365163 Movethechains
Unexposed and has taken off over fences lately, forging clear to score by a wide margin once more here 16 days ago. Every chance he'll land the C&D hat-trick.
11-7Jamie MooreGary Moorelocked1.1/10.91/117
3653652010 Hoot At Midnight
In-form mare who finally shed her maiden tag in a 7-runner handicap chase at Fontwell recently. Should give her all again, but a 4 lb rise might do for her up against less-exposed rivals.
10-6Charlie DeutschCharlie Longsdonlocked5.5/15/19
3653651896 Robins Field
Offered very little in a trio of hurdling outings for Tim Vaughan but could prove a different proposition now chasing on his first outing for Dan Skelton after wind op. One to consider.
10-13Mr Tristan DurrellDan Skeltonlocked6/116/1167
365365287 Bretney
Modest maiden hurdler who matched that form when third in a handicap at Stratford on chasing debut. Open to improvement, and would appreciate the emphasis being on stamina.
10-10Tom O'BrienHenry Dalylocked7.5/15/133
36536591 Lilith
Lightly-raced 6yo who produced her best effort to date when a rallying second at this course 9 days ago. Made hard work of it, though, so mightn't be in the same form turned out quickly.
11-12Rex DingleAnthony Honeyballlocked10/16/140
365365185 Getastar
Modest in bumpers and over hurdles, but there's every chance he makes a better chaser, so he's one to note with cheekpieces applied switched to handicaps for his debut in this sphere.
11-0James BowenPeter Bowenlocked12/128/1133
3653651698 Ballintara
Modest hurdler/chaser who opened his account in this sphere at Fontwell 169 days ago. Unlikely to be in the same form, particularly given the run will likely be needed.
10-10Marc GoldsteinDiana Grisselllocked14/133/1136
365365389 One For Dunstan
Far more miss than hit and seemed amiss returned to chasing at Plumpton on seasonal debut last month. Tongue tie tried but others make more appeal.
10-9Tom CannonRobert Walfordlocked20/128/140
365365252 Doitforthevillage
Has been a fine servant to connections over the years, but he appears to be regressing now.
11-12Nick ScholfieldPaul Hendersonlocked40/150/125
3653651611 Vital Sign
Limited impact in various company, sixth in handicap chase at this course last time. Hard to fancy.
10-0Tabitha WorsleyRichard Rowelocked50/166/132
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 3 Lingfield 13:15 Claiming Hurdle (Class 5) 20f

146 Secret Secret
11-0Kevin BroganGrace Harrislocked0
365365141 Celestial Force
Made hard work of adding another small-field success to his tally in a Taunton seller (19f) 2 weeks ago. Still, found another good opening on debut for new yard. Obvious claims.
11-10Jack TudorChristian Williamslocked0.4/11.25/1213
3653651915 San Pedro De Senam
Winless since 2018 but showed he retain his ability when fourth in a Newbury handicap (20.5f) in March. Never figured at Huntingdon in May but does at least return with yard in good nick.
11-0Jamie MooreGary Moorelocked3.5/12.5/129
365365252 Dream Du Grand Val
Dual hurdles winner for Nicky Henderson but essentially disappointing in recent times and he's passed over even allowing for the drop in class.
11-0James BowenAndy Irvinelocked12/14/167
365365133 Finisher
Winner at Doncaster (2m) in January but not scaled same heights on 3 of his 4 starts since, dropping away quickly on return from 6 months off at Worcester (20f) 2 weeks ago.
11-0Theo GillardMark Gillardlocked14/110/129
3653652417 Kalaya
Limited impact on Flat/over hurdles and hard to fancy returning from 8 months off here.
10-7Tom BellamyBarry Brennanlocked100/116/184
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 4 Lingfield 13:45 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

3653651181 Crossing The Bar
Dam half-sister to useful hurdler (2m winner) Cops And Robbers. Fairly useful on Flat, stays 1¾m. Left Sir Michael Stoute for 60,000 gns and rates an interesting hurdling debutant.
10-12Tom O'BrienPhilip Hobbslocked4.5/114/1211
3653652311 Sherborne
Modest form in bumpers and ran to a similar level when fourth on Exeter hurdles debut (16.7f) 23 days ago. Entitled to do better.
10-12Brendan PowellColin Tizzardlocked7.5/13.33/156
365365304 Green Planet
Fairly useful maiden on the Flat. Modest form only start in bumpers but showed plenty more sent hurdling behind a good prospect at Bangor (16.7f) last month. In the mix if building on that.
10-12Tom CannonAlan Kinglocked10/16/140
3653651499 Ocean Heights
Fair bumper winner who was sold out of Lucy Wadham's yard for £26,000 in August. Has matched that form both starts on the Flat subsequently and should have a future over hurdles.
10-12Tom ScudamoreDavid Pipelocked12/110/117
3653652310 Piaff Bubbles
Placed on the second of 2 starts in bumpers last season. Is bred to come into his own now jumping but swerved right and unseated his rider on Exeter hurdling bow 23 days ago. Open to improvement.
10-12Stan SheppardTom Laceylocked12/15/158
365365223 Exmoor Express
Signed off last season with a Chepstow bumper win but was in need of experience on hurdling debut there 22 days ago. Should do better in time.
10-12James BowenVictor Dartnalllocked16/125/156
365365306 Hey Joe
Progressive in bumpers (runner-up twice) but comfortably held both hurdle starts. Will be better off in handicaps.
10-12Richie McLernonJonjo O'Neilllocked33/180/1142
365365217 Jersey
Modest in bumpers and similar form in 2 hurdle runs. Handicaps presumably up after this.
10-12Mr Tristan DurrellDan Skeltonlocked50/180/160
36536519512 Time Bandit
Runner-up sole start in point bumpers but achieved nothing when tailed off in an Aintree bumper on Rules bow in May.
10-12Lorcan MurtaghBen Clarkelocked100/1250/1150
365365813 William Ewart
Has shown bits and pieces of promise in bumpers/over hurdles so far but will be of more interest in low-grade handicaps after this.
10-12Nick ScholfieldChristian Williamslocked200/1250/125
There are 10 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 5 Lingfield 14:17 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 20f

3653651112 Dorking Lad
Hurdles winner who showed benefit of return/chase debut run despite making hard work of things when second at Fontwell (19.5f) 11 days ago. Still, definite claims if blinkers help him focus.
11-4Jamie MooreGary Moorelocked3.5/13/114
3653652217 Confirmation Bias
Bumper winner who put it all together to open hurdles account at Wincanton (15.3f) in March. Runner-up back there final start and possible switch to chasing will bring about improvement. Worth a look.
11-7Bryony FrostPaul Nichollslocked5.5/112/1118
3653652496 Seven No Trumps
Definite signs of promise first 2 starts over hurdles last term prior to looking a little one paced at Carlisle (19.3f) final start in March. Still, it is early days and progress likely now chasing.
11-7Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked6/114/1133
3653651613 Animal
Bumper winner who ran to a fair level without success over hurdles. Definite promise when second on C&D chase debut recently and likely to come on for that run. Good showing anticipated.
10-12Charlie HammondSuzy Smithlocked7/13.33/152
365365264 Get Your Own
Fair winning novice hurdler last season who seemed to find things happening too quickly on return in a listed handicap hurdle at Ascot in October. Longer trip a plus now chasing.
11-12Harry BannisterAlex Haleslocked8/16.5/119
365365152 Buckhorn George
Maiden hurdle winner (at 19.7f) who hit frame 3 times in handicap hurdles last winter. Had lost place when falling on return over fences at Exeter 2 weeks ago but he may strip fitter for that run here
11-13Brendan PowellColin Tizzardlocked10/120/1100
365365249 Silent Assistant
Fairly useful maiden hurdler whose record last season was mixed. Never figured on chase debut at Hereford (20.8f) 25 days ago and he'll need to show the benefit of that run to figure here.
11-5Tom BellamyEmma Lavellelocked16/111/131
3653652653 Foxboro
German Flat winner who won 2 hurdles too in France in 2019. Promise on 2 of his 3 starts over fences for present yard last season, midfield at Newbury (2m) in March. Good showing not ruled out.
11-12Tabitha WorsleyRobert Walfordlocked16/125/156
365365251 Blame The Game
Bright start over hurdles last term, winning twice at up to 21.7f. Underwhelming return/chase debut effort over 23.5f here last month but certainly not one to write off in this sphere.
12-0Tom CannonChris Gordonlocked20/112/140
3653652810 Honorary Colonel
Lightly-raced maiden hurdler who wasn't disgraced when second over hurdles in a Ffos Las handicap (20f) back from 8 months off in October. Another needing a market check now tackling larger obstacles.
11-4Tom O'BrienPhilip Hobbslocked20/116/120
3653652938 Lamanver Storm
From a good jumping family and finished runner-up on 2 of 4 starts over hurdles. Poor effort at Chepstow (19.5f) when last seen in February but worth noting if strong in betting on return/chase debut.
11-6Stan SheppardTom Laceylocked33/140/121
3653652511 You Say Nothing
Dual winner over hurdles in Ireland but hasn't offered much encouragement over fences, including in a couple of runs for present yard this autumn. Hood again the headgear of choice.
11-4Jack TudorChristian Williamslocked80/1125/156
There are 12 runners in this race.

Race 6 Lingfield 14:47 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 20f

3653652576 Speech Bubble
Well backed and made a winning start to her career in bumper at Ffos Las. Much better effort since when good second of 16 in listed bumper at Sandown in March. Likely type now hurdling.
11-0Connor BraceNoel Williamslocked2.25/11.88/116
3653652559 Whisky Express
Related to 3 winners and opened her account at the first attempt at Taunton 8 months ago. Stable should have her well prepped, so likely player. Has had a wind op.
11-0Sean BowenHarry Frylocked2.5/15/1100
365365151 Doyen La Lutte
Off mark in Irish points and offered something to work on in a Fontwell bumper. Shaped well when third at Exeter on hurdles bow after wind op 2 weeks ago and sets a clear standard.
11-0Tom ScudamoreDavid Pipelocked3.33/13.5/15
3653651218 The Trampolinist
Stoutly-bred mare who won bumper at Uttoxeter on debut. Runner-up next 2 starts, though only a remote fifth on hurdles bow at Worcester on return in July. Step up in trip will suit after wind op.
11-0Nick ScholfieldSuzi Bestlocked18/122/122
3653653411 Russian Rumour
Fair Flat winner, making GB/IRE jumps debut.
10-13Harry BannisterJonathan Portmanlocked40/15.5/186
365365155 So Socksy
Winning pointer at sixth attempt but well held in a hunter and novice hurdle here 7 months apart.

Race 7 Lingfield 15:17 Handicap Chase (Class 5) 16f

365365245 Ivilnoble
Took a step back in the right direction from a rapidly-falling mark when runner-up sporting first-time blinkers at Plumpton earlier this month. Down another 1 lb and can make his presence felt.
11-1Ben Ffrench DavisDominic Ffrench locked3/13.5/117
365365361 Go As You Please
Profile has a rather all-or-nothing look to it, landing 4-runner contest at Warwick in September but never really going at Fontwell a month later. Blinkers replace usual cheekpieces.
11-12Richie McLernonPaul Webberlocked3.33/110/1200
365365254 Guguss Collonges
Some promise over hurdles, in the process of showing a bit more than of late when falling 2 out at Lingfield 25 days ago. Player if none the worse from that spill.
11-1Jamie MooreGary Moorelocked3.33/13/110
365365408 Valentine's Turf
Steadily progressive form over hurdles for Bernard Llewellyn, just edged out at Ludlow in May. Possibly amiss on chase debut and fared no better after a wind operation when tailed off last month.
10-2Jack TudorChristian Williamslocked6/15.5/18
3653651736 Gallic Geordie
First form when making a winning chase debut at Lingfield (2m) last December. Little to shout about since, tailed-off eighth when last seen at Hexham 6 months ago.
10-3Robert DunneSamuel Drinkwaterlocked9/13.5/161
3653652282 Finnegan's Garden
Veteran who ended 2019/20 campaign with a pair of victories, including here. Not at his best last term, though, finishing third of 7 at Plumpton (19.8f) when last seen 7 months ago. Had a wind op.
11-8Page FullerAndy Irvinelocked10/120/1100
3653652207 Spectaculardisplay
No promise in 3 starts over hurdles and hopes pinned on switch to the larger obstacles sparking dramatic improvement. Tongue tie applied for reappearance.
10-3Mitchell BastyanDavid Bridgwaterlocked10/17/130
3653652169 Midnight Owle
Proved he still has something to offer when second at Huntingdon but pulled up on both subsequent outings. Had a wind op but faces a stiff task from out of the weights here.
10-0Cillin LeonardClaire Dysonlocked125/180/136
There are 8 runners in this race.
