BAAN runs in a 12 furlong amateur riders handicap at Lingfield on Friday and Dean Smith takes the ride on him again, This is Dean's 3rd ride on the horse so let's hope it is a case of 3rd time lucky! There are 11 runners and he is drawn 9. 12 furlongs is a bit on the short side for him these days, although he is a course and distance winner, but it was the only suitable amateur race for him at the moment. The horse is in good form at home, let's hope they go a decent gallop and he can run a decent race. He has been dropped a couple of pounds by the handicapper since his last run so that must help his chance on Friday.
