12:30 Lingfield (21st November) Free Horse Racing Tips

An EBF Maiden Stakes over 6f on this turning track. Absolutely So should be just that on his second start. Kingsclere Park House Stables know a talented two-year-old when they see one and it spoke volumes that this son of Acclamation was sent off joint favourite when running at Newbury on debut over 7f on testing ground. This January foal was an expensive yearling purchase at 230,000gns. Running in the familiar silks of George Smith, there is little doubt this

bay colt was sent to the course with high hopes. However, inexperience tarnished what could have been a victorious first start. A slow start, then much too keen, Absolutely So eventually travelled smoothly over one furlong out. Signs of inexperience reared their head in the closing stages and that was the difference between winning and losing. That was a narrow defeat and more should be expected today. Clearly connections feel this drop back in distance will not be a problem. The sire had speed to burn and although a wide draw is far from ideal that initial experience should be advantage enough & sit in a handy position. With an equal number of colts and fillies, Balding's charge should be able to boss the girls and it will take a strong debutante to spoil a winning performance. I would be surprised if this colt is beaten.
