3.40 Lingfield, Tuesday, November 21

What A Welcome finished stone cold last, at three-figure prices, on both turf starts for Eric Wheeler in the summer, but has made significant progress since switched to the Polytrack at Lingfield by his new connections. Having shown signs of ability when fifth of 10, beaten 7¾ lengths, in a Class 5 maiden over a mile on his debut for Patrick Chamings last month, the Nathaniel gelding take a major step forward when winning a 0-70 handicap over 1 mile 2 furlongs earlier this month with a little in hand. His pedigree suggests that an extra two furlongs should be within his compass and a 4lb rise in the weights is offset by a drop back into 0-65 company, so he looks to have bright prospects of following up. In fact, off a mark of 67, he could be absolutely thrown in.

Selection: Lingfield 3.40 What A Welcome to win 9/2
