Cross My Mind did not handle the track at Lingfield
The Ralph Beckett-trained Cross My Mind did not handle the downward part of the track at Lingfield yesterday in the Listed 1m 5f contest. She settled much better with a decent pace set early on, and as usual was held up at the rear. Under Rob Hornby she seemed to be going as well as anything with around 3f to run, but she was quite a way back with a lot of ground to make up. As the race developed she was unable to quicken on the downhill section and once she was more balanced on the level the race was away from her. She stayed on well, passing several others, but was ultimately 8th, beaten 9 1/2 lengths. She was not given a hard time and back on a track with a longer straight she will be much better than the bare result here.
