Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield on Saturday...

Timeform on African Blessing

Dance Teacher - 19:30 Lingfield

Dance Teacher produced a career best when holding on to win at Kempton last time out, given a perfectly judged ride by Silvestre De Sousa, who's back on board today. She's up 1 lb for that win, but can follow up provided her rider can again get his fractions right up front. Godolphin's Fast Landing looks the danger, though he needs to bounce back from a below par run at Chelmsford last month.

African Blessing - 20:30 Lingfield

An open contest, in which African Blessing is fancied to score. He's been slowly sliding down the weights of late, and he's now down to an attractive mark. He could take some pegging back if allowed to get into a good rhythm up front under William Carson, and gets the vote to get back on track in what looks a moderate affair for the grade. La Isla Bonita looked better than ever when striking at Yarmouth recently and may offer most resistance, albeit the hat-trick seeking Showdance Kid also commands respect and Roys Dream needs considering, too.

Soumei - 21:00 Lingfield

It's encouraging that Soumei was able to score at Brighton last time, despite not looking at all street-wise, and there should be plenty more to come. The step back up to this trip should be in his favour and he receives a strong vote to follow up. Dragon Moon was successful on the AW here last month but failed to build on that at Chester next time. As such, Secret Eye is preferred for forecast purposes.
