Racing tips TODAY: The horses you must back at Lingfield, Newbury | Racing | Sport
The Philip Hobbs-trained nine-year-old made an excellent return after an absence of two years when collared close home by San Benedeto over today's course and distance.
He is 2lb worse off with Valdez, the third home on that occasion, but the selection is expected to improve after his long break and confirm his superiority.
French recruit Friend Or Foe (2.40) is highly-rated by his trainer Paul Nicholls and can add to his impressive victory at Taunton in December.
Nicholls had hoped to run the gelding at Cheltenham last week, in the Fred Winter Hurdle, but the gelding failed to make the cut.
Elysees, second behind the useful Quel Destin at Ludlow in December, represents the threat.
Get In The Queue (5.00) can provide the retiring Noel Fehily with farewell winning ride in the Goffs Flat Race.
Unbeaten in his two races, the Harry Fry-trained gelding looks a cut above his rivals.
VAMANOS (5.20, nb) can justify the long journey from Warwickshire by taking the Ferguson Handicap Hurdle in the horse racing at Kelso.
The Olly Murphy-trained five-year-old has posted two solid efforts in his recent outings and this looks the perfect opportunity for him to open his account.
Nicholls, another trainer making long-distance raider from his stables in Somerset, can make it a double at the Scottish track with KUPATAN (1.50) and WORTHY FARM (3.35).
EXECUTIVE FORCE (3.10, treble), a five-times winner on the all-weather, can make it a first victory at Lingfield.
This consistent performer is creeping up the weights but is up only 2lb for his latest win at Wolverhampton earlier in the month. He was awarded that race after finishing a nose behind Salute The Soldier.
That form reads well as Salute The Soldier had won his two previous races.
