Jason Weaver: Spirits will be Soaring if this lad wins at Lingfield

The Shark makes his picks from the card at Lingfield on Sunday...


Lingfield 11:30

Like most of this team, Isaan Queen has been running consistently well and also gracing the winners enclosure.

She’s hit the woodwork at the last twice and will have no problem reverting to this trip and track at Lingfield. The yard have had a fantastic season and can continue their rich vein of form.

Lingfield 12:00

Alsvinder often goes well for strong handling and is not going to get a stronger partner than Adam Kirby. He is flexible regarding tactics and with a little bit of pace in here it should set up nicely for him to be produced late.

We might grab a bit of value as El Hombre is going to be very short.

Lingfield 12:30

Soaring Spirits has only been nudged up 4lbs by the handicapper after what was a pretty comprehensive success over course and distance last time.

Given that he was forced a little bit wide to make his challenge we can upgrade that performance, and he is nicely positioned in stall 3 to get a perfect run into the race.

Lingfield 13:05

Astrospeed performed with credit on his first run for this stable when chasing home a tidy sort who is gone, and franked the form by winning again since.

Given how they always progress from this stable, don’t be surprised to see a good chunk of improvement to come. A rating of 59 should be nowhere near his ceiling.

Lingfield 14:10

Delicate Kiss won with any amount in hand last time and a 6lbs rise seriously underestimates his chance of following up.

He was very slowly away last time and gave away a massive amount of ground – don’t be surprised if he’s ridden a little handier this afternoon under Jason Watson.

Lingfield 15:15

Pivotal Flame deserves a change of luck as she has been hitting the woodwork on numerous occasions recently.

The yard are in pretty decent order and she has been found a very winnable opportunity. She’s not holding anything back from the handicapper but given a truly run race over this distance she is guaranteed to hit the line strongly.
