Lingfield race on Friday

Dean Ivory is hoping that Duchess Of Gazeley can build on a highly promising return in the £20,000 Coral Mobile "Just Three Clicks To Bet" Handicap (5.05pm) at Lingfield Park on Friday.

The four-year-old filly drops down to a mile and a half after coming home third, beaten just over half a length, on her first start for four months in the two-mile 32Red Conditions Stakes at the same course on March 1.

She progressed through the handicapping ranks last year, winning four times including a pair of clear victories over 12 furlongs at Lingfield Park. Jimmy Quinn, who partnered Duchess Of Gazeley last time, takes the ride.

Ivory commented: "Duchess Of Gazeley is in fantastic nick. She ran a blinder the other day on her first try over two miles and, if she had gone up the inside on the rails, she would have finished second.

"She has got a lot of form at Lingfield and has won over a mile and four furlongs there in the past. My only reservation is that the trip may be a little bit too sharp for her these days. I would have preferred to run her over a mile and six or two miles but I want to qualify her for Finals Day.

"She is a genuine, honest and strong mare - you don't get many fillies as straightforward as her. She got a bit foot-sore and I couldn't get the work I wanted to into her before her last run because of the wet weather. She was only 95 per cent when on that occasion and she has come on for the outing.

"We have just got to stretch them out a bit earlier because, although she keeps finding, she doesn't have that turn of foot in the final furlong.

"I would like to think that she has a good chance tomorrow and then we are aiming her at the last Fast-Qualifier for the Marathon at Kempton Park on March 31, which will be her third run of the Championships as well. We will give her little break afterwards, which should keep her just right for Good Friday."

A field of nine also includes the hat-trick seeking Blue Wave, course and distance scorer Grendisar and Angel Gabrial.
