I’ve been looking at the photos I have of some the runners in the 2.00 Lingfield 3yo handicap that I took of them as 2yos and my comments.Thought it would be fun to post them up and see if anything makes sense. The number at the end of each comment is my own attempt at what the OR potential might be.
Aevalon – Just about the biggest, tall and narrow and still very leggy. Disappointing effort. 68
Farendole – Reasonably sized filly did not look out of place amongst the colts but very downhill at the moment. Probably a 3yo project. 75
Envisioning – Ok boy, tough looking animal with some heft. Improve with runs. 71
Vejovis – I have a picture of this one but no comments. Looks a plain type 70
Ragtime Dancer – Photo poor and she made no impression. 67
Blackasyourhat – Nearly medium sized and looked well but not fit. Develop with racing and might surprise in a very weak race 4to+, not sure how to rate with this trainer. 64
Jersey Bull – Still a bit laddish in the pre-parade. 71
Fleetwood Poppy – Had a bit of size about her but weakening in the quarters. Might progress if trainer can extract potential 67
Hard to draw any conclusions. Farendole looks as though she should be best but I see the trainer is only 3/53 over c&d and I get the feeling she might need a bit more experience. Envisioning or Vejovis look the most likely alternatives amongst those I have seen. Oddly enough the best single piece of form seems to be Crystal Wish’ 3rd place 2to. She then was sent down to Windsor but was a non runner due to soft ground which might explain her awful performance on fibresand lto. At present she is any price on Bf so not very appealing.
After all that looks like one to watch.
