13:58 Lingfield – Rainbow Sign – 1pt @ 16/1
Rainbow Sign may prefer running over 7f but it’s not absolutely conclusive that he won’t be able to act at the mile on a sharp track and looks overpriced at present. His most recent effort is mediocre on paper as he finished ninth of 13 over a furlong shorter here four weeks ago but he got locked up behind runners as the race was developing and didn’t get a clear shot in the straight.
How he moved through the contest was encouraging and you’d imagine he’ll improve for that outing, his first in almost a few months. He drops into a classified stakes for the first time since he won a similar event in August (7f; here) and if he’s able to prove as effective at a mile, a similar performance figure puts him up with the recent best of any of today’s opposition.
Daphne May is the sleeper as she’s a level above this if returning to the form she showed with Adam West but her price is so short and must be creating some value elsewhere. Rainbow Sign comes with risk attached but some hints, such as his Kempton run in March, say that staying a mile could be within his compass if he relaxes and I’m happy to play 16/1. At this level, it’s just too big.

16:18 Lingfield – Heer’s Sadie – 1pt @ 25/1
Heer’s Sadie was one of my last time out selections and it’s safe to say that didn’t go to plan. She broke out well from a wide stall and got a handy position, but went too fast and had nothing to offer in the home straight. Cheekpieces being applied may not have helped matters either and I’m inclined to suggest the run is worth ignoring.
With the headgear discarded and a much lower stall to emerge from, two of the possible issues are gone and the other might be the trip. She drops from a mile down to 7f and with her sole win coming in a sprint, and all of her peak ratings been over 6f or 7f, my enthusiasm for turning her into a miler at a low level was likely an error!
This is a 0-60 so she’s eligible to contest easier races but it’s only a few runs since she caught the eye in a 0-65 here (that being over the mile!) and if she’s able to return to that sort of level, I’m sure she’s not a 25/1 poke to win this. Tyrese Cameron removes 7lbs and, albeit from limited evidence, I think he’s an exciting apprentice to follow. Hopefully he’ll get a good tune out of the mare.
19:00 Wolverhampton – Fernando Rah – 1pt @ 5/1
Fernando Rah has been spoken about in glowing terms by Clive Cox before and I’m very interested to see how he’s going to perform. We haven’t seen him since he lined up in the Gosforth Park Cup in June and presumably he has taken some time to come right, but on the promise of what he was doing as a three-year-old, there must be more improvement to emerge from the locker.
His win at Southwell last December stands out, as he absolutely routed a decent field off 89 and had the useful Zarzyini three-lengths back in second. That was only his fourth go at the minimum trip, his first attempt at it on the All-Weather, and he was at least as good at 6f next time when runner-up to Lord Of The Lodge in a conditions’ race off level weights; he’d have received 11lbs in a handicap.
It’s a pity his career has stalled since but he’s the right age for a sprinter to come into his own and must be capable of seeing these off from a mark of 95. Fitness is the worry as he might need the run to step forward but Cox can get them ready to rock first time out and given a lack of visits to the track in the past year, I doubt they’ll be racing him unless all the right signs are in place.
