Blue-blooded colt among three worth watching at Lingfield and Ayr

Lingfield, where two of today's horses in focus run

Lingfield and Ayr provide Saturday's evening action. Here are three runners worth looking out for

Fearless Warrior
6.15 Lingfield

The money has been for Global Warning in this novice stakes and it is not hard to see why given he is ahalf-brother to The Tin Man and Deacon Blues, among others.

Fearless Warrior has great pedigree too and cost twice as much as a yearling. He is by Sea The Stars out of a Listed 1m winner in Germany whose previous four foals ended up with RPRs in excess of 100.

The fact these two blue-bloods are meeting over nearly a mile at this stage in their career should tip the balance in favour of Fearless Warrior, who made a promising debut at this track.

Devils Roc
7.15 Lingfield

The draw on Lingfield's straight turf course has one of the most pronounced biases in the country, favouring those drawn high. In stall 12 of 13, Devils Roc comes arrives having been second in her two nurseries so far.

She is now 6lb higher, but trainer Charlie Hills is utilising 7lb claimer Scott McCullagh to neutralise that. McCullagh needs only one instruction: get on the rail.

Kuiper Belt
8.35 Ayr

Those watching Musselburgh yesterday were treated to a glimpse of Jamie Spencer at his most confident, when he tried to win on Kuiper Belt without coming off the bridle. In the end, he shook him up briefly to assert and eased to an impressive victory.

Gordon Elliott kept the gelding in Scotland to bid for aquick double. He carries a 6lb penalty, which on yesterday's evidence need not stop him going in again.

Just to make sure, promising 7lb claimer Andrew Breslin is in the plate. He lacks Spencer's flamboyance, but he is good value for his claim and Kuiper Belt should win again if able to handle the quick turnaround.
