Princess ready to rule on handicap debut

The unexposed Barbs Princess could well have got in lightly her handicap debut in the 3.30 at Lingfield and looks overpriced at 5/1.

Charlie Hills’ filly was far to green to do herself any justice when a well beaten last of 7 to Upward Spiral on her juvenile debut at Sandown, but duly improved for the experience and showed what she was capable of when scoring net time up at Leicester.

She raced plenty of early dash to race alone towards the far side that day, and after being ridden to take up the running at the furlong marker pulled readily clear to win going away by 2 lengths form Silca’s Dream.

The runner-up is a consistent sort who has since gone on and landed a maiden at Wolverhampton off an official rating off 69, and that makes the selection look well treated of an opening mark of the same given that it was just her second start and she is open to stacks more improvement.

The daughter of Bahamian Bounty should also appreciate the step up to 7f judged on the way she was finishing off when winning at Leicester, and she is unlikely to be found out for lack of fitness as her yard have hit the ground running this season.

They have saddled three winners and four placed horses from their last 7 runners, and also boast a healthy strike rate of 21% at the track in the past 12 months.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Barbs Princess (5/1 888sport)
