Seychelloise let down favourite-backers last time but she can make amends in the Daily Unibet Early Prices From 9am Handicap at Lingfield.

The four-year-old was firing on all cylinders before Christmas, notching two wins at Wolverhampton as well as a victory at this track - in addition to finishing second on three occasions.

Sir Mark Prescott’s charge has duly stepped up the ratings a bit and she lines up here on a career-high perch of 90, despite having to settle for the runner-up spot on her most recent outing at the beginning of December.

Seychelloise was only beaten a neck that day as Tempting swooped with a telling late run so she deserved plenty of credit in defeat after once again trying to make all.

The Pivotal filly has been given a couple of weeks off the track since then so she should be nicely refreshed ahead of this assignment.

Kristoff boasts a lowly rating of just 46 but he can take full advantage in the Ladbrokes Handicap.

The three-year-old showed little in three maiden starts but when switched to handicap company by Jim Boyle, he showed a touch more promise.

While only competing in lowly company, Kristoff defied his 20-1 odds as he tried to make all before going down by half a length.

That was his best effort to date and he merits a small interest in what is a similarly low-class heat.

Mayasa can follow up on her success in an average Southwell maiden last month in the 32Red Casino Handicap.

An initial mark of 75 does not look too harsh and she is worth supporting here.
