No Need to Mull It over; It's a Golden Opportunity for Killough Racing Preview

Article excerpt

Byline: NAOMI MATTHEW

RICHARD Fahey has hopefully found a good opportunity for Mull Of Killough by way of the Bet In Play At ladbrokes.com Handicap (3.15) at Lingfield.

Third in the 2010 Lincoln off 96, the five-year-old was highly tried during the remainder of that campaign.

Having missed most of this year, he returned in September and he put what was a below-par effort behind him next time up in a bigfield handicap at Newmarket, running a cracker in fifth.

But it was his performance here last time out that really caught the eye, a fine second behind Riggins on his first try on the Polytrack.

The aforementioned Riggins goes for a repeat win in the Worthingtons Hyde Stakes (6.35) at Kempton and has to be followed.

Twelve months ago he deadheated with Marco Botti's Fanunalter, who has definitely upheld the form since, winning and placing in Group company.

Four tries on the all-weather in Britain have seen him unbeaten and that Lingfield win will have set him up nicely.

Sir Mark Prescott's filly Clinical rates the danger.

Tislaam is another who goes well at Kempton and should be on the premises again in the Carling Handicap (7.05).

Alan McCabe's four-year-old hardly ever runs a bad race at the Sunbury venue and has shown more than once he can be competitive off this sort of mark.
