SANDY COVE and MAJOR CRISPIES return to Lingfield tomorrow and both have chances. SANDY COVE runs in a mile handicap, there are 8 runners and he is drawn 6. We were delighted with his first run for us last week over 7 furlongs and he looked as if the extra furlong should suit him well. Luke Morris came back after the race and said the same and he is aboard again tomorrow. The race is possibly a bit quick after his last run but he seems very well at home and it looks an ideal race for him. He has to take on last week's winner, BARBARY, again but he has a 6 pound penalty which must give us a good chance to turn the tables tomorrow.
MAJOR CRISPIES runs in a 6 furlong 3 year olds only conditions race, there are 7 runners and he too is drawn 6. We were obviously delighted with his win last week. He does have a high head carriage but that is his way, he quickened up well and won in decisive fashion. The handicapper has put him up 8 pounds to 87, there are no suitable handicaps for him with this rating so this was the only suitable 3 year olds only race for him. He has a bit to find with some of the other runners on ratings so we hope the handicapper will be sensible if he doesn't win. The horse seems to have taken his last race well so we will see how he goes tomorrow.
