We start in the 14:20 at Lingfield where the John Gosden maiden, Ravens Corner, has been a noticeable drifter in the market, which has seen his price drift from 2.757/4 out to 4.216/5.

He has shown promise in his two outings so far, finishing fifth on his debut at Newmarket and followed up with a running-on second at Chelmsford. Both these were over seven furlongs and today's mile trip should suit, however the vibes coming from the betting suggests that it may be worth looking elsewhere for the winner as there seems to be several promising types in opposition today. The in-form Hugo Palmer's Banish, for example, has been well supported to make it third time lucky this afternoon and is another who will find today's distance ideal. Also in the field are two well-bred newcomers; Egyptian and Jabbaar who will also give the Godolphin colt plenty to think about.

This looks a strongly contested maiden and we feel Ravens Corner will have his work cut out to make the frame, so recommend a lay place on this selection.

We move to Newcastle, who are hosting all-weather racing for the first time this afternoon. In the 15:40 race the top weight Life Knowledge has been a warm order all morning, his price coming in to 6.411/2 from an early 11.521/2.

Although the four-year-old gelding has yet to find the winners' circle after 10 races, he has shown signs that his turn will soon come - he ran a cracking race on his penultimate start last season at Hamilton, where he failed by a neck to beat Liberty Sky in a competitive handicap. A reproduction of that performance should see him run close today on his all-weather debut. We feel he is worthy of an each-way interest today.

Finally we return to Lingfield (15:25) for our win bet. Toriano has been well supported on the exchange from 7.26/1 in to 4.77/2 and we feel he will follow up last month's Kempton winning debut (where he was well-backed) with another victory this afternoon.

He carries top weight today but we feel this well-bred three-year-old is open to bags of improvement and with Adam Kirby in the plate, we fully expect Toriano to win with the minimum of fuss.
