Oddschecker tips for every race at Lingfield on Friday.
The key to this race could be the recent clash between Miss Calculation (first) and FLY THE NEST (second), with the latter taken to come out on top this time around courtesy of a 5lb pull at the weights. Tony Carroll's charge has not been outside the first two in his last five starts and he deserves a change in luck. Recent C&D winner Luxy Lou can also have a say in proceedings. Prediction : 1st Fly The Nest 2nd Miss Calculation 3rd Luxy Lou
CHRONOGRAPH looks to be improving and his form figures suggest that a win may be just around the corner, with the slight rise in distance expected to suit. Oyamal wasn't without promise on his first start for new connections at Southwell, while Latin Verse only got motoring late on when making his debut over shorter here last month. Urban Outlook is a newcomer to note coming from a bloodline his trainer knows well. Prediction : 1st Chronograph 2nd Oyamal 3rd Urban Outlook
Now that the penny has dropped for MISS MOONSHINE after a taking success at Kempton, there should be much more to come from Rod Millman's filly, especially as she returns to a C&D she was narrowly denied over on her penultimate start. Arbaawi (third) has just over three lengths to find with the selection on that Kempton run but can't be ruled out, nor can Wolverhampton winner Once Adaay, who makes his handicap debut. Prediction : 1st Miss Moonshine 2nd Once Adaay 3rd Arbaawi
Brains arrives in tremendous form having notched back-to-back successes at Kempton and Chelmsford but having never won from a mark this high, he could prove vulnerable. UNFORGOTTEN hasn't been seen on a racecourse since his Newcastle win in April 2021, but it's interesting that the Godolphin team persist with him and, if he's at the top of his game, an opening mark of 86 might be lenient. Others to note include Starshiba and Tropez Power. Prediction : 1st Unforgotten 2nd Brains 3rd Starshiba
A fairly open contest, in which a chance is taken on RIFFA FORT. Martin Smith's charge was well held in his three qualifying runs, but this handicap debut presents a more suitable opportunity and the unexposed son of Helmet could take a marked step forward. Sundayinmay has been knocking on the door and she's likely to be thereabouts, along with Mafia Power, who is just 1lb above his last winning mark. Prediction : 1st Riffa Fort 2nd Sundayinmay 3rd Mafia Power
The John Butler-trained Inaam is an intriguing contender given he arrives following a decent third on his most recent outing over 7f at Newcastle last month. However, his losing run stretches back to January 2021, so it is easier to side with LOTHIAN. The gelded son of Coach House lost little in defeat when finishing half a length behind the winner over this C&D on his latest run and is fancied to bounce back to winning form. Macon Belle was denied by the narrowest of margins last time and can give the selection plenty to think about.Prediction : 1st Lothian 2nd Macon Belle 3rd Inaam
In a contest lacking depth a chance can be taken with the class-dropping POLITICS, who looked outpaced in a hotter handicap over 6f at Southwell three days ago. Although he remains 3lb above his last winning mark, that success came over this C&D and he should not be taken lightly. Broxi has been running consistently well of late and is feared most, ahead of the Tom Ward-trained Bobby Dassler.Prediction : 1st Politics 2nd Broxi 3rd Bobby Dassler
