1:45 Lingfield (29th November) Horse Racing Tips/Result

A 0-85 Nursery over 1m. The only two-year-old race of the day. Tones is a likable colt who has never been out of the first three in his career of five starts. After an easy win at Epsom, his first venture at handicap level was a much tougher affair. However, this son of Strategic Prince showed gritty determination to hold all comers in a tight finish. Whether this extra furlong will help is a matter of opinion.

But one thing you can be sure is that Hannon's juvenile is in flying form and in a race where many are taking a step up in class or out of form has a big chance.

Emmuska is another representative for the Hannon's and by all accounts a talented horse. Two wins from five races proves this daughter of Sir Percy has a leading chance after pipping Koko Loca.

Yesterday's winner, Masters Club, has hit a rich vein of form with consecutive wins. However, progressing from Selling class to a fair nursery is never going to be easy. Ryan Powell takes the ride helping negate most of the extra weight, which is sound reasoning. This gelding is in good form but I would have concerns this higher grade will be find him out.

Singalat & Abshir Zain are both out of form.

Conclusion: This could well be a battle of Hannon's colt and filly. Both are fair juveniles and if pressed I would choose Tones.

HCE: ''Richard Hannon held the aces here with Emmuska holding Tones with a little left up her sleeve.''
