Signposts: Playfull should put Havlin in right spirit at Lingfield
Rab Havlin takes one ride at Lingfield before heading on to Chelmsford. Playfull Spirit (Lingfield 4.30) is related to a few classy sorts and her maiden/novice form looks strong in the context of this handicap.
Hugo Palmer enlists a hood to good effect (six winners from 15 runners) so don’t be put off Dragon Kuza at Chelmsford (5.50). His dam won over 5f as a two-year-old and he may have enough with the headgear to help.
Monks Stand reeled off a quickfire treble over 6f at Southwell in March/April and returns after a small break. Today’s race (3.50) is over 7f, but the way he finished off at Southwell suggests the extra furlong is suitable.
