Hors de Combat is all set to contend Thursday's race four on the card at Meydan, the mile handicap Range Rover Velar. He will be up against another high quality international field, with a host of Godolphin runners plus English trained raiders from the likes of Simon Crisford, Ed Dunlop and Jamie Osborne. As expected the fine weather and good track condition should suit him very well, and he's overdue some good luck in running this time around. Further details to follow...….

Tony Killoran's Dessie's Diamond ran and jumped really well in very testing conditions at Lingfield, to finish second beaten just over four lengths. Jockey J J Burke held him up, closing well to a great position two out, and then easily beating off the odds-on favourite to take second after the last. Given that he didn't appreciate the very soft ground, this was a great effort and he will surely soon be breaking his maiden tag on better ground.

After cancellations owing to frost and flu, finally Dessie's Diamond returns to hurdling action tomorrow, 18th February, in the freetipsatlingfield.co.uk Maiden Hurdle at Lingfield. Jonathan Burke takes the ride and the forecast going is heavy.
