Verdict

LES GAR GAN has her first run at Lingfield but has been in decent form in sellers and claimers lately. She kept on well behind Dialogue at Wolverhampton last month and a repeat of that effort should see her go one better here. Matraash looks the danger as this is probably his best trip but he hasn't won in almost a year while fellow course and distance winner Bennelong turned in a couple of disappointing performances here and at Kempton last month. Emperor Ferdinand was well behind the selection at Kempton in October and Monsieur Chabal's latest third came in a very poor contest.
