Top tipster Andrew Mount has four selections across three races on the all-weather on Friday
CANZONE – (1.00 Lingfield, 1pt win - 9/2)
CANZONE made a pleasing debut when fourth of ten in a 1m novice contest here last month, the 33-1 shot doing well to finish less than four lengths behind the winner after blowing the start and running green. He clocked a good time and is unlikely to be inconvenienced by the drop down to 7f. Forecast favourite Mount Mayon has cheekpieces on for the first time, a worry for progeny of Kodiac. They are just 16 from 284 (5.6% strike-rate) for a huge loss of £180.16 to a £1 level stake at SP.
COUNT OTTO– (2.00 Lingfield, 1pt win - 3/1)
COUNT OTTO performs best in all-weather sprints when given a field of nine or fewer runners, recording form figures under such conditions of 1113652414 (4-10), improving to 11152414 (4-8) away from Chelmsford. The latest defeat can be excused as blew the start, me trouble and reportedly lost a shoe. Trainer Amanda Perrett is in good form and he’ll be happier back at 6f after his close-up 7f third here last time.
GALEOPHOBIA – (6.45 Newcastle, 1.5pt win - 13/2)
GALEOPHOBIA improved for first-time cheekpieces when fourth at Southwell last time, doing well to finish withing three-lengths of the winner as he contributed to the very strong early pace. The switch to Tapeta should hold no fears for the son of Dandy Man and his stable remains in fine form on the sand this year.
GRIGORA - (6:45pm Newcastle 1pt win - 16/1)
GRIGORA is another who won’t mind the switch to Tapeta and this son of Zoffany could well improve for the first-time cheekpieces (his sire’s gelded progeny are ten from 49 in this headgear for a profit of £54.75 to a £1 level stake at SP). He didn’t show a huge amount on turf last year but his 6f Hamilton fifth in a first-time hood wasn’t a bad effort (the runner-up, sixth and eighth won subsequently) and he was clearly unsuited by the drop to 5f on his final outing.
