2:20 Lingfield (23rd September) Arlecchino's Leap To Finish With Zeal

Some horses front run: others sit so far off the pace you need a pair of binoculars strapped to a telescope. Arlecchino's Leap, trained by Mark Usher, is the hold-up horse of all time. In fact, some budding astronomers have seen Halley's Comet before this laid-back two-year-old comes into view.  It's a spectacle to watch this son of Kheleyf, who won at Wolverhampton over the minimum trip when ridden by able apprentice, Racheal Kneller, claiming a valuable five pounds. Similar restful tactics were employed last time at Kempton when this brown colt ran on with verve but couldn't quite reach the leaders. I wouldn't bet on this horse at SP but if you fancy a speculative punt you may be able to catch huge odds in running. Remember you will need your binoculars.
