1m Lockinge Stakes
Everything in place for Brook at a massive price
The Lockinge Stakes has a double-figure field, the lack of a standout star attracting so many entries.
Lightly-raced Le Brivido is favourite and was an eye-catcher on his last start. He needs cut in the ground to be at his best though, as does second favourite, Laurens. Laurens has the best profile at least, and if she is ready first time up, she’s the most solid.
There is rain forecast for Friday, but the ground might yet be GF by race time, and if so, the outsider, Billesdon Brook, has lots in her favour. She needs a straight mile on quick ground, and a strong pace for her stamina to take effect. She got all three in last year’s Guineas, which looks excellent form on reflection, and if she gets the same again here, she could beat this modest field.Tip created by MOSCOW
