Today’s selections feature a tale of two princes in a race at Lingfield this afternoon, along with selections at Dundalk, Fakenham and Southwell. All pricing coming from Unibet
All pricing correct at the time of publication
(1) (2:00pm Lingfield) CAPRICORN PRINCE was 13/2, now 7/2
Picked up victory at beginning of the year, with a make all win at Kempton (1m 3f), before subsequent fourth places in two runs since, including the last at Chelmsford over 2m, when weakening in the last furlong or so, which is a minor concern. Has the ability to feature, but needs to produce a little more.
(2) (2:00pm Lingfield) PERCY’S PRINCE was 9/1, now 6/1
One win so far in fourteen starts, that was at Kempton last September. However in recent outings he has struggled a little, with the last five producing a run of 38765. Has dropped down the ratings, to the level which he won at, but needs to improve. Each-way claims at best.
(3) (7:15pm Southwell) STAR ASCENDING was 11/1 now 17/2
Five of twelve career victories have come at this venue and has placed or better in 53% of races here too. Comes in 4lbs lighter than when winning last time at Wolverhampton last May, although his last performance was disappointing, when last of ten also at Wolves. Must bring more this evening.
(4) (1:40pm Fakenham) GLOBAL THRILL was 20/1, now 10/1
Almost two years since winning a Class 3 at Newton Abbot, this veteran horse has slowly dropped down the ratings, but is still capable of picking up results, with a second and third last year. Has failed to finish in two of last four runs, however an eighth at Taunton in a Class 4 last time out on heavy ground offers fresh interest, as he drops down a further level today. Each-way claims and could go further if runs well.
(5) (5:00pm Dundalk) PLOUGH BOY was 16/1, now 11/1
Won at Laytown in September, but has failed to continue the form, with six subsequent runs producing a best of sixth in that time. However he is well handicapped and has won here on three occasions. Worth a look at the current price.
