I've never been the biggest fan of Richard Hannon, but the former champion trainer looks to have a good chance with TOMILY.
The speedster has a cracking record on the all-weather, so it was no real surprise to see him come up short on turf over the summer.
He was a ready winner over course and distance on his last visit to Lingers before following up at Kempton off a mark of 102.
Following a run of defeats on grass, he has slipped back to his last winning mark.
He loves to attack a strong pace, which looks guaranteed here, while Classic-winning jock Sean Levey can get the perfect position from gate three.
Earlier on the card, five-year-old mare VERY HONEST (12.50) can deliver the goods.
She caught the eye when fourth at Kempton last time, keeping on nicely from off the pace in a steadily run heat.

She was the only horse to make up any sort of ground there, with the first three home holding prominent positions throughout.
Now off a rating of 65, she won gamely on her last visit to Lingfield off a 7lb higher mark.
Tom Marquand is a good booking and trainer Brett Johnson could hardly have found a better opening than this.
