Lingfield: Royal Birth

Runs track particularly well and raised only 2lbs for winning almost identical race 13 days ago. Stronger pace should suit even more (ran fastest final furlong) and yard back amongst winners.

The 1.10 Lingfield is a repeat of a race 13 days ago and although there was little to split the first four home I believe Royal Birth can come out on top again.

It’s good to see that Stuart Williams is back amongst the winners after a difficult summer and Royal Birth is proven winner at this track including at Listed level. The Hever Sprint is surely on the agenda again but he can still be competitive in handicaps off a mark of 96.

Ornate enjoyed the run of the race last time and with more pace in the race I think conditions will suit Royal Birth even more. Watchable rates as the big danger and is better off at the weights but he never manages to beat Royal Birth at Lingfield and the flat spot he hits 3-out tends to harm him around this sharp track.

*SP 9/4 was best price after rule 4 deductions to 11/4 listed.
