2:13 Hamilton – Lady Lade
The best bet on Monday comes in the Joseph Leckie & Sons Ltd Handicap, where LADY LADE can take advantage of some lenient handicapping.
Keith Dalgleish’s three-year-old has an excellent record here, winning her novice over C&D last season, and placed twice in 6f handicaps here in June, when seeming to find her stamina stretched. Those placed efforts came in Class 4 company, and after losing her way mid-summer, she has dropped in the weights, and came back to form dropped in trip and class at Ayr last time, finishing an excellent third of 21 to Triple Jaye, beaten just a neck and half a length.
Lady Lade pretty much proved what the form suggests at Ayr, that is that she is best at the minimum trip, and her record at the trip now reads 5113. The ‘5’ came on her debut at Carlisle on soft ground, and she shaped very well despite needing the experience that day, keeping on for hand riding to be beaten 2¼ lengths after missing the break from a wide draw.
She built on that to win her next two starts at 5f, but it wasn’t until the Western Meeting at Ayr that she was tried again at the trip. The fact that she bounced straight back to form at Ayr augurs well, and while it can be argued that she’s unproven on the ground, her only runs on such a surface have come without the benefit of a prep run, and she’s performed perfectly well in the circumstances.
Lady Lade showed she could be competitive from marks in the mid-70s before her temporary dip in form and returns to a track she handles well off a mark of 68 now, which to my mind looks like a golden opportunity, particularly with a draw in 9 looks a positive, with Shesadabber likely to make the running from 11, and that in-form mare should give us the perfect tow deep into the race.
