BARKING MAD (6.30) did well to defy the widest draw when getting up close home over course and distance at Kempton a fortnight ago.
He has a 3lb rise to cope with on a return trip this evening but Phuket Power should ensure a decent gallop to attack.
BRIDGEWATER BAY (7.30) could hardly be described as leniently treated on handicap debut off a mark of 80 but with most firms offering four places each-way, he can leave behind a disappointing third when well-touted at Lingfield. He seemed to prefer this more galloping track when accounting for John Gosden's Sheriffmuir in a one-mile novice stakes last month.
NAFAAYES (2.20) lacks a change of gear but usually acquits herself well at Lingfield. She finished runner-up in this two-mile handicap last year, running on from a poor position after being hampered at the gate, and looks too big a price at 16-1 with Paddy Power. Again, most bookmakers are going four places each-way and if Nafaayes can repeat her third to Alan King's Giving Back over course and distance in November, she will be on the premises.
Padleyourowncanoe developed into a fairly useful handicap hurdler and is a very rare Colin Tizzard runner on the all-weather. He looks sure to go close along with Social City, a winner last time at Chelmsford City when stepped up in distance by in-form trainer Tony Carroll.
