Marquand can conjure the best out of consistent The Special One

Becauseshesaidso: can follow up recent Chepstow win
1 of 1

The Special One
2.05 Lingfield
The Special One has been knocking on the door in low-grade course-and-distance handicaps and, if getting a clear run, could finish with a late rattle to land the spoils.

Ali Stronge’s charge is a model of consistency – she has hit the frame in four of her last six starts – and always seems to run her race.
The five-year-old has finished third in successive starts at the Surrey venue, both times in more competitive events. Two starts back she chased home Dutiful Son, twice a winner since, and Mansfield, who wasn’t disgraced in much better company at Newcastle last time out. A reproduction of that effort – off the same mark – would be good enough.

As a hold-up performer she will be relying on the gaps to open having been stopped in her tracks a number of times last time out, but despite that she was still beaten just over a length and Tom Marquand knows her well.

Becauseshesaidso
4.25 Exeter
The Venetia Williams yard tends to come alive when the ground turns soft and her lightly raced ten-year-old Becauseshesaidso can follow up an easy success despite carrying a 7lb penalty. 

Although a ten-year-old, he has had just 12 career starts and could be the type to rattle up a sequence having run out an emphatic winner at Chepstow five days ago. 

He had the race won some way out with his economical jumping and his proven stamina on tiring ground makes him hard to oppose.
The quick turnaround could be a negative for one who has had his problems, but he’s due to go up 12lb for his latest rout, which makes him 5lb well in.

Charlie Deutsch, who claims 3lb, is likely to keep things simple and attempt to make all. 

Bobby Biscuit
5.45 Kempton
Bobby Biscuit hasn’t been seen for 138 days, but the form of his debut fourth couldn’t be working out any better and he can win on his return to Kempton. 

Simon Dow’s well-bred son of Scat Daddy was sent off an unfancied 20-1 shot but wasn’t disgraced in a race over 7f in which the market principals had all had the benefit of a run.

The winner, Symbolization, had finished a narrow second to the 99-rated Vintager on his debut and has an Irish 2,000 Guineas entry, while runner-up Glendevon, has bolted up since, recording an RPR of 95, and third-placed Tanseeq has also shed his maiden tag.
The inexperienced Bobby Biscuit was just seven lengths behind the winner and shaped like an extra furlong, which he gets here, would help him.

It would be disappointing if Dow’s charge couldn’t build on such a promising effort.

Happy Escape
6.45 Kempton
Neil Mulholland is doing well with his small Flat string and can saddle a second winner in three days with the improving Happy Escape.
The unexposed four-year-old got off the mark on his sixth start over course and distance three weeks ago, which was just his second run for the yard, and there should be plenty more to come despite a 5lb hike.

Being drawn out wide in 14 isn’t ideal, but he was dropped to the rear last time and it seems he’s happier to come late and fast rather than attempting to force the pace having been ridden prominently by Adam Kirby when only third over 7f on his stable debut.
There looks to be plenty of pace on with Deliberator and Nature Boy likely to force it and that looks set to suit the fast-finishing Happy Escape.
