Quiet but interesting week-end ahead
Trueshan belied odds of 33-1 when winning for Hollie Doyle at Wolverhampton last week, and hopefully first-time cheekpieces might do the trick for Fields of Fortune at Brighton today. He ran well to finish third at Nottingham last time.
Giving Back, who hails from a family that Alan knows so well, has already won a couple of bumpers on the all-weather and is back on the polytrack for her first handicap at Chelmsford tomorrow night.
However, our two runners at Lingfield on Saturday are both on the turf, Hummdinger, who is better than he looked in a slow-run race at Leicester last time, and Tamar, a 40,000gns Breeze-Up purchase at Newmarket in April. It will be interesting to see how this Tamayuz youngster shapes on his debut.
