32RED Sprint Cup Stakes (Listed Race) - Lansky

Phoenix Thoroughbred Limited
So racing goes ahead at Lingfield. 

I didn't think there would be much racing at all and then all three all-weather cards survive inspection. 

3:30 Lingfield - 

The Spring Cup Stakes is a Listed race over 7 1y on Standard going. 

I can't say I've looked at this race too much. The first thing that popped into my head was Lansky, trained by Jeremy Noseda and ridden by Ryan Moore. This Irish-bred son of Dark Angel cost 300,000G at the 2yo breeze-up sales in the ownership of Phoenix Thoroughbred Limited. This bay colt has won twice in four starts. Beaten a couple of times when racing at Group class (Acomb Stakes Group 3 at York & Mill Reef Stakes Group 2). Two noble efforts placed third and fourth respectively beaten less than five lengths. He has total earning slightly shy of £20,000. 

Interesting to consider how many of these six entrants where identified by Group Horse at two, the majority before they had made their debut. 

Five of the six were identified early in their 2yo career.
