Verdict

Castle Combe is up only 3lb for winning at Lingfield and should be in the mix once again. Hedge End can also be given a chance despite disappointing over 7f last time as she won over track and trip in October. Firtyshadesfreed had Mersad back in third when winning a lower grade contest here a fortnight ago, but the likes of Captain Swift and Shore Patrol may improve past him. However, another handicap debutant in IRISH TEARS makes most appeal, as John Gosden's colt will appreciate the step up in trip and has decent claims on earlier third at Sandown.
