Apostle looks simply divine.

Byline: Argus

Apostle CAN make the most of the step back to SEVEN FURLONGS iN the Ladbrokes HaNdicap at Southwell.

David Simcock''''s DECISION to try his charge over a mile last time Narrowly failed to pay off as he was BEATEN just a LENGTH aNd a half WHEN third iN what appeared a competitive little heat at LiNgfield.

Apostle was clearly STRUGGLING for a FINAL burst iN the DYING strides that day aNd HAVING WON three times at SEVEN FURLONGS aNd oNce at six, it seems a mile just stretches his STAMINA.

That said, he was Not disgraced BEHIND Rebellious Guest aNd the HANDICAPPER must also have BEEN MARGINALLY impressed as he has raised the five-year-old a further 1lb to a mark of 90.

While he will have to post a career best to WIN off that perch, Apostle is iN FINE heart aNd rates aN INTERESTING CONTENDER as he tries the FibresaNd for the first time.

Beachwood Bay should appreciate a move iN the opposite DIRECTION to Apostle, STEPPING back up iN trip after BEING BEATEN four LENGTHS over six FURLONGS here last MONTH.

DroppiNg back to six, Beachwood Bay was RIDDEN positively but could Not FIND much of a kick iN the FINISH aNd had to be CONTENT with fourth place.

Given that Jo Hughes'''' charge had previously FINISHED a closeup SECOND over SEVEN FURLONGS, the extra DISTANCE has to be iN his favour.

Beachwood Bay was BEHIND ARABIAN Flight oN that OCCASION aNd while the pair clash AGAIN iN the Bet ON Your Mobile With Ladbrokes SelliNg Stakes, Hughes' ''' RUNNER is worth aNother CHANCE.

MoNdlicht hails from a black type family aNd is the choice as he makes a belated racecourse bow iN the DowNload The Ladbrokes App MAIDEN Stakes.

AN EXPENSIVE purchase back iN 2011, MoNdlicht appears uNlikely to repay his price tag aNd but is well worth FOLLOWING as Mark JOHNSTON has persevered to get him to the track.
