Knight To Behold lands Lingfield trial

Knight To Behold benefited from an enterprising ride by Richard Kingscote to win the Betfred Derby Trial at Lingfield.

Kingscote took Harry Dunlop’s colt to the front once the field had settled down and got an uncontested lead.

Knight To Behold was at least six lengths clear entering the straight and, hard as though Ryan Moore tried to close the gap on the well-backed 8-11 favourite Kew Gardens, the 7-1 shot was still three and a quarter lengths clear at the line.

Corelli was seven lengths back in third place.

Kingscote said: “He’s a proper horse. He showed a nice attitude.

“I was very pleased. I think he’ll learn plenty coming round that turn.

“It was a good learning curve for him.”
