6:20 Lingfield (3rd September) Free Horse Racing Tips

A Maiden Auction Stakes over 1m on standard going.  Twelve two-year-olds take part in this restricted race type, the majority lightly raced and three debutantes. Paul Cole may not have as big string of juveniles these past few seasons but he is none the less a talented trainer who knows a fair horse. Elysian Prince is a son of Champs Elysees out of a poor mare, similarly owned and trained. This home bred was sent through the sales ring as a yearling for 15,000gns and bought by the vendor. This tactic is often used by private breeders to make them legible for such low-grade races as this bay colt contests today. This April foal ran in a tough race when making his debut over 1m at Goodwood. I doubt connections held any great expectation they would return victorious although buoyed by a pleasing introduction. As with most juveniles, Elysian Prince will be primed to run a big race on his second start, hailing from a trainer who follows a similar path. This is a huge drop in class. Although a big field, the majority of horses are limited. In reality this class of race compares with plating grade. This youngster will take the beating although probably priced to chance about 3/1. If touching each way prices would make a fair bet.
