The progressive Tizlove Regardless landed the odds at Lingfield last time a shade cosily. He bids for a treble off a 7lb higher mark but still makes more appeal than Libeccio and Wolverhampton maiden winner Rite To Reign. However, LUNGARNO PALACE will prove a tougher nut to crack as the former Ballydoyle inmate made a winning start for Marco Botti at Wolverhampton last month. That was his first run since September and, with further progress expected over this longer trip, he could prove the one to beat.
