Each way thief

BEAT THE BREEZE (12.30 Lingfield)

He landed a hat-trick of wins late last year, including one over this course and distance. He then had a little break and looked rusty when beaten four lengths on comeback here last time. His handicap mark still looks fair and he’ll get closer today.

MIDNIGHT MUSTANG (4.05 Leicester)

He may be 14 now but he turned back the clock when finishing a cracking second here last time out. This race doesn’t look any tougher and his best form has come over this trip with soft ground right up his street.
