The All-Weather Championships take place at Lingfield on Good Friday

Timeform on Kachy

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield on Good Friday...

Breathless Times - 13:30 Lingfield

Breathless Times disappointed here on his final start last year but his overall all-weather record is a very good one and he set himself up nicely for this when finishing fifth on his Newcastle reappearance in February. He might be up to conceding weight all round here from a good draw, with the dangers headed by Tom Dascombe's Sha La La La Lee and the thriving Lion Hearted.

Kachy - 15:05 Lingfield

Kachy has looked better than ever in both starts this winter, comfortably landing the odds in a listed event over C&D in February, further improving his excellent record at this track (three-time C&D winner). He has a good draw to work from and has excellent claims of going one better having finished second in this last year. George Bowen produced a career best to win at Kempton 3 weeks ago and remains unexposed on AW, so is feared most ahead of French-raider Forza Capitano.

Oh This Is Us - 16:45 Lingfield

Oh This Is Us proved a big disappointment at Wolverhampton six weeks ago when sent off a short-priced favourite, but the drop back to seven furlongs didn't seem to suit, and he was most impressive when winning off a mark of 110 over this C&D the time before, so will be a big player if reproducing that. Keyser Soze did well under the circumstances to complete the hat-trick at Newcastle 8 weeks ago and is feared most ahead of Straight Right.
