Lingfield: Race on Wednesday

Sky Bet

Mr Burbidge will bid for a six-timer in the £19,000 32Red Conditions Stakes over two miles at Lingfield Park on Wednesday.

The lightly-raced six-year-old has been a revelation since starting his winning sequence over an extended two miles at Wolverhampton on November 1, improving 31 pounds in the handicap to a mark of 87.

Neil Mulholland's charge was last seen scoring decisively in a mile and a half handicap at Southwell on January 7.

Mulholland reported: "Mr Burbidge is likely to run at Lingfield on Wednesday. He has come out of his win at Southwell very well and schooled over hurdles yesterday, so he is fresh and well.

"I thought it was a very good performance there because he is not bred to be a mile and a half horse, but we thought we would take a chance and it came off. He wasn't even blowing after the race because he was just getting going.

"He is very genuine and I think confidence has been the key to him. He has not stopped improving over the last couple of months and is just growing up.

"The step back up in trip should suit him at Lingfield and the more he does, the better he is. We will have a look at Finals Day with him because he is going the right way and until he tells us where his level is, he is entitled to have a crack at something like that."

The 17 entries for the 32Red Conditions Stakes also include recent course and distance winner Theology, Kempton Park scorer Arch Villain and Group Three Ormonde Stakes third Communicator.

Grendisar has also been entered after staying on well over a mile and a half last time, while improving four-year-old Duchess Of Gazeley could return after a short break.

The 32Red Conditions Stakes winner will be a guaranteed a free start in the £150,000 Marathon over two miles at Lingfield Park on £1-million All-Weather Championships Finals Day, Good Friday, April 18.
