WILLIAM HAGGAS mopped up the two Listed races on last year’s interesting Lingfield card and the Newmarket trainer has prospects of repeating that feat with MOVE SWIFTLY (2.35) and DRAMATIC QUEEN (3.05).
Move Swiftly is a dual all-weather winner, at Wolverhampton and Chelmsford City, so should have no trouble handling this surface and her recent neck second to Bella Ragazza at Newmarket marks her down as the one to beat.
Dramatic Queen got bogged down in the mud at Haydock when only fourth to Mekong but had earlier run third to Worth Waiting at HQ. Alwaysandforever was right behind that day but she often ruins her chance by breaking tardily. She finished behind Willie Mullins’ True Self at Bath and Mullins sends over Law Girl to contest this 1m 5f contest.
There is a third Listed event on the card and SALATEEN (2.00) can take the prize north for David O’Meara. His fourth to Limato at Newmarket was solid and Salateen just gets the nod over another Yorkshire challenger, Kimberella.
- Lingfield 2.35 – Move Swiftly (11-8, William Hill)
- Lingfield 3.05 – Dramatic Queen (7-1, Paddy Power)
- Lingfield 2.00 – Salateen (3-1, Ladbrokes, Coral)
