Lingfield: War In Heaven

Showed an excellent turn of foot, when closing rapidly off a steady gallop last time at Lingfield. Al Ameen in second gives a solid look to the form and opening mark of 75 looks very generous.

War In Heaven made a very pleasing return to action when beating Al Ameen at Lingfield. Al Ameen is a very solid yardstick at this level and ran well again last week so the form stacks up nicely.

Having gone wide around the final bend, War In Heaven showed an impressive turn of foot to accelerate into a quickening pace and win by 0.75 lengths. The overall time was only, ok given the sedate early gallop but a sub 22s closing sectional always reads well.

I think the handicapper has misjudged him with an opening mark of 75
