Aussie Lyrics was one of the several winners to justify connections high expectations by prevailing on an informative afternoon at Lingfield on Thursday.

Aussie Lyrics, an Aussie Rules two-year-old colt trained by George Baker for a group of owners that includes Channel4 racing pundit Jim McGrath, impressed with the manner of his two and a quarter length victory in Division Two of the Class 6 mile under jockey Jim Crowley.

“Jim couldn’t be more pleased with him,” Baker told London24. “He did that really well. That will be it for this season. We don’t tend to overcook our two-year-olds so we will put him away and treat him like the good horse we think he is.”

Division One was won by the highly regarded Swing Easy who vindicated his cramped odds of 4-7 to win under jockey former jump jockey Graham Lee who has confirmed he will be staying in the UK to ride on the all-weather throughout the winter.

However winter will be over before the John Gosden trained Hanseatic is next seen, after a two-length win on his debut in the Class 5 mile for jockey William Buick.

“He did that well,” Buick said. “He is a bit green and it took him a while to get going in what wasn’t a strong field, but he did it well.”

Earlier, jockey Adam Kirby twice successfully used similar tactics when slipping the field at the top of the straight to land a double on Chrissycross in the one mile Class 6 and Schoolmaster in the seven furlong Class 4.

“The idea was to just sit behind and let him run on,” Kirby said after unsaddling Schoolmaster. “But he was travelling well and so I let him run. He is big and strong and will go on to better things.”

Jockey Neil Callan was also impressed with the victory of Muhdiq who has been a revelation in his four starts since joining trainer Mike Murphy, finishing third and second before winning over five furlongs here last month and then over an extra furlong today.

“The race wasn’t really run to suit him as he has been running over five furlongs,” jockey Neil Callan said. “He did it very well.”
