Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield on Saturday...
"That was a big step back in the right direction, and he can have that performance marked up, too..."
Timeform on Affulence
Breden - 14:35 Lingfield
Breden is compiling a really solid record on artifical surfaces, winning his last two starts over this trip at Kempton and Chelmsford with something to spare. He is up another 2 lb to a career-high mark now, but looks sure to go well again in his hat-trick bid. Course-specialist My Target is an obvious danger from his reduced mark though, whilst Isomer may do best of the remainder.
Yimou - 15:10 Lingfield
Yimou confirmed the promise of his debut after six weeks off when finishing fourth over this trip at Kempton last time, noted keeping on well in the last two furlongs just for hands-and-heels riding, finishing with running left. He seemingly has an even bigger effort in his locker and gets the vote in what doesn't look the strongest race of its tyoe. Shamlahar and Oneovdem can also get involved.
Affluence - 15:40 Lingfield
Affluence remains a maiden after 18 starts on the Flat, which raises some concern, but he was backed at long odds when finishing an excellent third at Chelmsford last time, shaping very well to boot. That was a big step back in the right direction, and he can have that performance marked up, too, making his move earlier than ideal, leading two furlongs out and only headed late on. He has been given a real chance by the handicapper and will remain of interest from this sort of mark.
