Royal Acquisition to Reign Supreme at Lingfield


3.30 Lingfield – Royal Acquisition

Not all of sire Royal Applause’s progeny perform well on artificial surfaces, but Royal Acquisition is one of the offspring who has shown an aptitude for the all-weather, and after an impressive win at Redcar last time out, he has a good chance of following up off an 8lb higher mark.

In the spring, Ivan Furtado’s 5 year old gelding was running some good races in better company than he faces today. The stand out performance was a narrow second placed finish over today’s course and distance in Class 4 company. He then went off the boil somewhat, but returned after a mid-summer break with an authoritative performance at Redcar, under champion jockey elect Silvestre De Sousa. Although the Brazilian maestro isn’t partnering the horse today, he has an able deputy in the form of the talented Irishman Frederik Tylicki. From stall 7, the horse is likely to be bustled up to take close order on the early pace setters, and he would be well advised to challenge early on the home turn.

The race isn’t a walk over by any means and Dark Profit could provide stern competition. Robert Cowell’s 3 year old has been a little frustrating at times, but he finally got off the mark at heavy odds on last time out and has been given a break since. Cowell is a master trainer of sprinters and 3 year old speedballs tend to do better against their elders as the year progresses. Even with that said though, the horse has shown some temperament in the past and is avoided for that reason.
