Timeform pick out three bets from Lingfield's all-weather action on Saturday...

"If she is ready to roll after a break she could go one better here..."

Baby Gal - 14:20 Lingfield

Baby Gal wasn't in much form when we last saw her on the turf at Epsom in August but she has been dropped a couple of lb in the weights since and is interesting on her second over six furlongs at this track in July. If she is ready to roll after a break she could go one better here, shaping as though well worth a crack at this sort of trip. Chelwood Gate didn't get the rub of the green at Wolverhampton earlier this month and is next on the list ahead of Living Leader and Bloodsweatandtears.

Top Break - 14:55 Lingfield

Top Break began the most recent turf season from a BHA mark of 90 so should be well capable of striking from this sort of mark when things fall right. He ran well over C&D earlier this month, finishing fourth from a hopeless position, and with a bit more luck here he should go very close from an unaltered mark. Barye and Every Chance are both appealing from a handicapping point of view, too, and are feared most in that order, while Zubayr also enters calculations.

Attain - 15:30 Lingfield

Attain has been going through a good spell in recent weeks, finshing third here on his last two starts, and the presence of good-value 7 lb claimer Nicola Currie in the saddle for the first time could prove key to him getting his head back in front. Next on the list is Ban Shoof, who was runner-up off this mark over C&D in September. Unit of Assessment, Hallingham and Pink Ribbon are all live each-way contenders.
