14:10 Lingfield – Middle Kingdom (BEST ODDS 6/4 with William Hill)
Middle Kingdom looks by far and away the classiest horse in the field. He was only three quarters of a length away from victory in a Class 2 race last time out and this is a step down in class that should suit him down to the ground. Talking of the ground, he’s won on the all-weather before and is a distance winner who knows what it takes to win at this trip. He’s top weight, but I think his mark looks far when compared to the rest of the field and I’m surprised he’s not a shorter price favourite.
