Looking away from Aintree, Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield on Saturday...

"He heads here off the same mark as last time, and ought to get his head in front sooner or later."

Timeform on Big Time Maybe

Emenem - Lingfield 15:10

While Emenem struggled on his first two starts this year, he took a firm step back in the right direction when finishing third over two furlongs shorter here at the end of last month, giving the impression that he needs more of an emphasis on stamina these days, keeping on having been outpaced around the home turn. He hasn't been firing for a while now, but he's potentially well-treated on his old form (11 lb lower than last winning mark), and is fancied to return to form in what looks a winnable heat.

Big Time Maybe - Lingfield 16:15

Big Time Maybe has been there or thereabouts in four starts since having wind surgery, shaping as if still in good form when finishing third at Wolverhampton on his most recent start last month. He heads here off the same mark as last time, and ought to get his head in front sooner or later. As such, he shades the vote to return to winning ways here, at the expense of last-time-out C&D scorer Fareeq.

Jai Hanuman - Lingfield 16:50

Jai Hanuman arrives here in fine form, having completed his hat-trick in the style of one who is still ahead of his mark at Kempton Park last month. He won cosily that day, meaning a 5 lb rise seems unlikely to stop him, and he gets the vote to win a fourth race on the bounce. Subliminal and Luna Magic head the dangers.
