Odin is partnered by leading amateur Simon Walker as he chases a hat trick having landed a double at Wolverhampton last month. But MAWAAKEF is just preferred on his latest third in a competitive handicap at Lingfield. Fujin Dancer scored under today's rider at Wolverhampton last time and recent Lingfield winner Echo Brava should go well for Serena Brotherton. No Such Number scored over hurdles last month and is another to consider back on the level.
