2:30 Lingfield Racing Tips (28th February) Maiden Stakes (Class 5) (3yo)

A Maiden Stakes over 7f 11y on Standard going. 

No time to waffle this evening. 

Interesting to note Traveller, trained by Charles Hills, makes his return after finishing a close third at Chelmsford. 

This son of Henrythenavigator cost 60,000E when purchased at two.

He ran well last time out when a touch weak in the betting but showed up well only tiring in the closing stages. 

By all accounts, the first four showed a level of ability. Sir Mark Prescott's Alabaster, who finished four against Traveller, won next start. He improved a good deal for the experience and step up in distance. However, this is one of few three-year-olds the trainer has on the go and looks a live chance here. 

Traveller should appreciate this lesser trip. 

Interesting to note this is Ryan Moore's only ride on the day. 

Not much of a price but a difficult horse to beat.
