Verdict

FOAD was sporting blinkers for the first time when making a winning start in handicaps on the Turf at Lingfield. The headgear remains in place and, given he beat a subsequent winner on that occasion, Ed Dunlop’s colt gets the vote to go in again. A visor is applied to Leg It Lenny having placed over 7f here a fortnight ago and can figure along with Champagne Supanova, who finished closer at Lingfield last week. Elpheba and Twittering step back up in distance handicapping for the first time and Red Maharani is fitted with blinkers for her handicap debut.
