1-Indian Affair-Slow times c/d-can either lead or track the leaders-could be in contention early and possibly make the frame...2-New Rich-82c/d-hold-up horse-will be finishing at the end of the race and ought to win...3-Katy Spirit-slow time c/d-track leaders- should be prominent early and may make the frame...4-Divine Call-106distance at Lingfield-hold up or track leaders- this course should suit and looks possible place horse...5-Tinglt Tangle-asnt shown mcuh form and may need a longer distance so doubt it will get into contention...6-Safwaan-hold up type but may need further to show its best...7-Insolenceofoffice-slow time c/d-hold up or track leaders-may make the frame but would be a shock if it won...8-Rose garnet-slow time c/d-track leaders or hold up type- may make the frame...9-Rutterkin-slow times-various tactics used including leading-doubt if good enough to win.
VERDICT: I would expect Indian Affair to try and lead from the front, if not Rutterkin could make it. I doubt if either are good enough to win from the front. Divine could be the possible danger if it takes to Kempton as well as it has run at Lingfield. The horse that catches my eye is NEW RICH. I certainly dont expect this horse to lead, but it will probably be held up just behind the leaders or just off the pace. It won its last race over c/d and having just turned 4 I expect it could improve again and win this race.
