Lingfield Top And Drop

Horse racing - Lingfield - 10 Jan 15:00

This is a 20 furlong, Class 4, Novices Handicap Chase. The forecast going is soft.
Top And Drop is a 6 year old mare, trained by Venetia Williams, ridden by Liam Treadwell.
I put this horse up last time out and she finished 2nd having almost mowed down the leader in the dying strides, that was a a good effort and she's worth keeping on side.
That was her second race this season and she's finished 2nd in both, on her first start she got the the front but was outpaced over the shorter trip.
She's clearly in good form this season and I expect her to go close again, especially as she now switches to the bigger obstacles for her chase debut.
She's definitely bred to be a chaser and is with a yard best known for chasers. I fully expect her to improve now, in which case she could go one better this time.
The soft ground will also play in to her hands given the way she stayed on in soft last time.
Liam Treadwell takes over from 5lb claimer Charlie Deutsch, shame she's 5lb higher but Liam Treadwell is a better jockey, possibly suggesting a bigger run is expected.
Venetia Williams has had 9 winners here at Lingfield and interestingly all 9 winners were over fences.
It's a decent race but I definitely expect this horse to be bang there, at 6/1 she's a good price.
