The Mandarin’s Saturday Selections for 20th January 2024

The Mandarin’s Saturday Selections from Lingfield

Best Racing Odds Guaranteed At BetMGM Handicap 12.15
The chance is taken on David Evans’s Ultramarine for the opener on Lingfield’s Saturday card. Since the move over from Joseph O’Brien’s stable in Ireland in 2022, a couple of runs out of John Butler’s yard didn’t seem to eke out any improvement, but since joining David Evans things have been going the right way on the all-weather. A brace of wins at Wolverhampton in December have been backed up with a win at Kempton two weeks back, and he’s easy to back for his in-form trainer. Every chance

Fire Demon
Fire Demon looks the one to keep on side here, with the notable booking of Ryan Moore taking up the reins for Andrew Balding. Lining up in the Juddmonte silks, this Dark Angel colt goes to post after an all the way win at Kempton two weeks ago. Handicap debutante Roman Emperor looks the obvious danger, but Fire Demon is unexposed, and can deliver here despite the wide draw

Amazing (nap)
Roger Varian’s Siyouni filly has a great chance of doubling the winning tally on the all-weather here. She was a runner-up on this track back in June, but should be suited by this longer trip, and there’s every chance she’ll act on the Polytrack surface. Hollie Doyle will have to drop her in coming out of Stall 12, but she’s a classy pair of hands on the reins, so Amazing gets the nudge

Build Your Acca With BetUK Handicap 2.35
Kevin Ryan’s Kodi Bear gelding lines up on a hat-trick after wins at Newcastle and Southwell last month. Always prominent in that last run, Tommy Eaves knew he had enough horse under him to land the spoils, so kept him up to his work to score by a neck. Up in Class again, but with an ideal draw in Stall 2, has to be in the mix

BetMGM Winter Oaks Fillies’ Handicap 3.10
Twirling (nb)
Simon & Ed Crisford have had the two ante-post favourites in this race with Oh So Grand and Twirling. It’s the Churchill filly, Twirling, that makes most appeal however, as she looked to be crying out for this longer trip when last seen here before Christmas. There should be enough pedigree to see out this trip, being a second-generation progeny of Galileo, though stablemate Oh So Grand holds the higher rating. A good duel in store, with Twirling to take the Winters Oaks
