2:10 Lingfield (1st May)

An open looking maiden.

Art Jewel, owned by Mathew Green, trained by Simon Callaghan and ridden by Jamie Spencer ticks most of the boxes and will have her supporters. It is interesting that she has an entry to run at Newmarket as Callaghan often sends some of his better juveniles there so this may be a pointer.

One of the most interesting points about this race is that Mick Channon's juvenile has been entered for a selling race. Considering her tissue price is as short as 3/1 with Racing Post, it would pay to tread carefully if you are interested in this juvenile. It may not be a sign of death, however it doesn't bring about confidence.

Clive Brittain should be respected although this juvenile may need further.

A watching race.

Race review: 'Not the most competitive of races and Art Jewel looked more like a windmill than a horse as her tail spun to victory. Clearly not used the whip she looked very awkward and should improve from this debut effort. Any Day ran a fair race in second but to be truthful this wasn't the best of contests. Forget ran on to finish third and will improve. Boga illustrated why she had been given a selling race entry. A small filly, she was soon struggling to go the pace but ran on in the final furlong.'
