RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS

3:40 Lingfield

Angel On High

Harry Dunlop

Improved with each run last season and I think he has an each-way chance here.

PRICE 6/1
5:00 Newcastle

Bold Suitor

Ed Walker

PRICE 15/8F
1:20 Ludlow

Allart

PRICE 8/11F

News in Brief

Defi Du Seuil and Un De Sceaux do battle for Clarence House

Defi Du Seuil and Un De Sceaux are the two star names among five runners declared for the Matchbook Clarence House Chase at Ascot. The Philip Hobbs-trained Defi Du Seuil got the better of Willie Mullins’ Irish raider Un De Sceaux by a neck in a pulsating renewal of the Tingle Creek at Sandown in early December – and the pair will renew rivalry in this weekend’s Grade One feature.

High praise from Knight’s Young Darling

Young Darling drew high praise after an impressive winning debut in the bumper at Newbury with former trainer Henrietta Knight drawing favourable comparison with her three-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Best Mate. Knight said: “He’s the best I’ve had since Best Mate. I am excited by this horse.”
