QUEEN’S COURSE (2.35) can take full advantage of a drop in class to beat 11 rivals in the 7f handicap at Lingfield Park.
David O’Meara’s filly won over course and distance in early December and probably improved again when running favourite Shimmering Dawn to a neck in a Conditions Stakes 12 days ago.
Tim Easterby is finishing the year in fine fettle and penalised VIVE LA DIFFERENCE (4.20) sauntered home over this mile trip three days ago at Newcastle. The hold-up gelding is best weaving through off some solid fractions and James Sullivan will be playing his usual waiting game. Course specialist Great Colaci and Dramatista were placed on the same card and rate the main threats.
