OH THIS IS US (2.15) landed the 2019 All-Weather Mile Championship and holds strong claims in the 7f handicap at Lingfield.
Richard Hannon's seven-year-old usually arrives on the scene late and those waiting tactics worked a treat last month at Chelmsford City when Oh This Is Us caught Animal Instinct.
Stablemate War Glory had more than two lengths in hand of Gifted Master when striding clear in this race last year, with re-opposing Documenting held in fourth. War Glory should again go well, while Huraiz possesses scope for improvement. Ghalyoon looks well enough treated at the foot of the weights to take a hand in an intriguing contest.
In the absence of Chocoya, MARIANCE (1.15) gets the nod over She’s A Lion. She has been keeping decent company in a busy season and will surely appreciate this drop in class.
There were a couple shocks at Southwell on Tuesday but the 1m 4f handicap can provide a more punter-friendly outcome. MR CARBONATOR (6.45) was outclassed by Notation and Hermocrates but this is weaker. He is trading at an each-way price.
Son Of Red bumped into fast-improving Whitehaven at Yarmouth and Alan King’s gelding will go close if adapting to this surface. A similar remark applies to Sea of Shadows. She showed promise at Chelmsford City before posting a respectable third at Wolverhampton and Mick Easterby’s filly could make the most of her light weight if taking to Fibresand.
