InNewCL Sports Racing’s Mike Cattermole believes Thursday’s rescheduled Winter Oaks Trial at Lingfield could produce a good filly and has his eye on a lightly driven competitor from Team Simon and Ed Crisford.

Lingfield is hosting another all-weather map Thursday, and by far the most significant and valuable race is the Talksport Winter Oaks Trial (2.20), a Class 2 handicap over a mile and a quarter.

The race was saved from last Saturday’s canceled game when there was originally a six-runner field consisting of Viola, Sea Tsarina, Queen Of Ipanema, Sweet Fantasy, Tequilamockingbird and Tahasun, all returning.

However, both Makinmedoit and Yorkshire Lady, who are slated to go on Saturday’s Listed Quebec Stakes show, have downplayed their views somewhat here.



Three-time all-weather winner including two here, both over a mile and a half who was a good second off that mark at Goodwood in September – but over a half a mile further than today.

She was also a superb second in the Group 3 Pinnacle Stakes over a mile and a half earlier in the season but has been below her best lately and this trip could be on the sharp side. Not the most trustworthy.


Has made some big strides in her last three starts with more patient tactics, starting with an easy win at Salisbury in a Class 4 handicap before getting no daylight to ending far late down the stretch at a Yarmouth listed company arrived.

Luck was on her side here last time though as she secured a nice run on the inside rail over the course and distance in another Class 2 handicap to claim her third win of the year under an inspired Pierre-Louis Jamin achieve.

There could be more from her and a 3lb increase isn’t too unreasonable. Definitely a player.

Yorkshire Lady

Useful filly who has won 5 times (4 times with Jo Mason) and is constantly improving.

Only her second all-weather start and first since October 2020 and fitted with headgear (visor) for the first time.

She’ll be played late as usual and while she wasn’t disgraced in her previous two attempts at list level, this second-choice target looks more like her race after Saturday’s abandonment. Interesting.

sea ​​tsarina

Won over a mile on her Yarmouth debut in June (seven furlongs) and again here in August but was disappointing on soft ground at Thirsk in September when she found little after hanging.

She’s been gone ever since, which might be revealing as she might have had an excuse, but a line needs to be put through this run if you like her here. One thing in their favor, however, is the step up in the trip.

Queen of Ipanema

Never made the circuit for the Gosdens and was picked up in July for 20,000 guineas.

Her first three starts for George Boughey were underwhelming, but she’s been a winning machine ever since! The all-weather tour started in Wolverhampton in October with a score of 52 – especially when they were fitted with a tongue strap for the first time.

Since then there have been victories at Wolverhampton (58+) and Chelmsford (69), all these Class 6s, then Newcastle (Class 5, 75+) and again Wolverhampton (Class 4) (80+).

Now 83, she’s gained 31 pounds in less than two months and is a glowing tribute to her trainer.

Maybe she hasn’t quite won yet, but this is another step up and her toughest test.

sweet fantasy

Had been going well in the loss until finally managing to put her head forward over a mile and a half on her ninth attempt at Southwell (Class 5).

The cheek pieces for the first time may have helped her and she’s gained 3 pounds, but she’s back on the road today and embracing better company. Must probably get more out.


Consistent filly who won over the course and distance here in June, over 11 furlongs at Kempton in August and back here again on this trip to make two out of two at Lingfield.

That experience was to serve her well, as did her attitude, and for her recent success she was only lifted a pound, albeit by a hair’s breadth. Might do well in this stronger company.


Cost €240,000 as a yearling and only made her track debut in June when she did very well third up at Newbury.

Somewhat surprisingly, it took her three more tries to stray but did so in style at Kempton earlier in the month after a four-month hiatus that had clearly served her well.

She had been beaten by Sea Tsarina to third by just under a length when she started the odds here in August and is resisting on 1lb better terms. But the fact that she’s had a holiday afterwards and has returned in style at Kempton suggests she’s in much better shape now.

There should be more improvements as she is bred to be eligible for an increase to 10 instars. Fascinating contender.

Victoria Grove

One of three from Henry Spiller’s in-form team. Stayed close to winning over a mile at Chelmsford in October after winning over seven furlongs here in June but was a disappointment last time here.

Is attempting the journey for the first time but that can be a positive as there is a lot of stamina on her maternal side. However, more exposed than most of the others.


Finishing fifth behind a 96 mark in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot looked like a sure future winner but hasn’t built on that at all and remains a girl after 10 starts. Now up to a grade of 85 and has been tried in a visor and cheek pieces.

Tried the distance a couple of times and seemed to stay but would be a surprise winner.


Apart from one run at Leicester (difficult course for some) he was most consistent on that trip in June, winning at Chelmsford and last time out at that course and distance in Class 5 company too. A visor has replaced the usual cheek pieces the last two times.

Now 2 pounds up but needs more in this deeper competition.


Nice race! Queen Of Ipanema was clearly in brilliant form, but this is an improvement in grade for her. Makinmedoit has similarly provided better company and needs to be respected as well, and she and Yorkshire Lady are played late and need some luck.

AL AGAILA looked like she gave it her all last time out after a break in Kempton, and with the promise of more to come for her in-form stable on this trip, she’s simply favored in a hard-fought event.
