Beckett takes treble chance

Honor Bound, Kallisha and Moonrise Landing will represent Ralph Beckett in the Betfred 7.5 Million Scoop6 Today Oaks Trial at Lingfield.

The Andover handler first won the race with Kayah in 2007 and although she was unable to make a significant impact in the Oaks at Epsom, a year later Look Here was narrowly beaten at Lingfield before going on to claim Classic glory on the Downs.

Last year Beckett trained Secret Gesture to claim the Lingfield trial and she went on to fill the runner-up spot at Epsom, finding only stable companion Talent too strong.

This year's Beckett trio is headed by Moonrise Landing, with the Lingfield maiden winner partnered by stable jockey Jim Crowley.

James Doyle will get the leg up on Honor Bound, a winner at Windsor less than a fortnight ago, while Richard Kingscote comes in for the ride on Kallisha, who was successful on her only previous appearance at Sandown.

The highest-rated filly in the field is the Andrew Balding-trained Casual Smile, whose narrow defeat at the hands of Taghrooda last September looks excellent form in light of the winner's subsequent exploits.

Queen's Prize, who carries the colours of Her Majesty, represents the Sir Michael Stoute-Ryan Moore combination having made a good impression when making a winning debut at Kempton last year.

John Gosden's Criteria is another who steps up in class after winning a Kempton maiden.

Isabella Beeton, Island Remede, Momentus, Mutatis Mutandis and Stealth Missile complete an 11-runner line-up.
