NIGEL NOTT (2.45) had more than three lengths in hand when scoring at Chelmsford City 13 days ago and is strongly fancied to follow up at Lingfield.
David Simcock's gelding, the only four-year-old in the field, has a welter burden but has the services of a useful 3lb apprentice on top.
CAFE MILANO (3.50) outran his 33-1 odds when third to impressive winner Angel On High and hot favourite Rhubarb Bikini over course and distance a fortnight ago. Simon Dow has booked 5lb apprentice Thore Hammer Hansen to ride his colt and a repeat performance would be good enough to collect the lolly. Paddy Power are the wrong price at 5-1.
SKY DEFENDER (3.15) was a typical Mark Johnston winner over course and distance 27 days ago, being sent to the front early by Joe Fanning and running on strongly when pressed. My selection had more than three lengths to spare and a similar forceful ride may be enough to shake off another course and distance scorer, El Ghazwani.
