14:00 - MOSSGO (1) ran creditably when fourth on his most recent outing over this C&D, travelling strongly in the leaders' slipstream throughout and keeping on well in the closing stages to be beaten just two and a quarter lengths. That form received a boost when the winner followed up next time and this represents a significant drop in grade for Mossgo. He is now 2 lb lower in the weights than when recording his last success at Kempton in August 2015 and looks sure to be thereabouts with jockey Kieren Fox in such fine form at present (two winners from last five rides).

14:30 - TRAVELLER (3) produced the best effort of his career to date when third at Chelmsford 12 days ago and left the impression the drop back to seven furlongs would see him in an even better light. That form leaves him 3 lb clear of those with previous experience on Timeform ratings here and Traveller is taken to open his account at the fourth time of asking in what doesn't look the strongest race of its kind, with Never Folding feared most of the remainder.

15:00 - SENNOCKIAN STAR (1) was seen to better effect than most when regaining the winning thread here on Saturday (well-placed in a steadily-run race), but it was hard not to be impressed with the way he put the race to bed in the closing stages and he appeared to win with plenty in hand. The quick turnaround is an obvious concern, but Sennockian Star would appear to hold obvious claims of following up if arriving in the same form and shades the vote from Dutch Uncle in this third leg of the Placepot.

15:30 - MISE EN ROSE (4) ran respectably when third on her return from three months off the track at Chelmsford last time and is entitled to improve with that outing under her belt. She showed herself to be a useful performer when placed in a pair of group contests last summer and - 9 lb clear of the field on Timeform ratings - Mise En Rose looks the one to beat if reproducing that level of form and is an obvious selection with the Placepot in mind.

16:00 - PINWOOD (4) was a decisive winner of his penultimate outing over this C&D and ran at least as well in defeat when third at Chelmsford last time. He appeared to have his stamina stretched by the longer trip on that occasion and kept on well in the circumstances to be beaten just a length and a quarter. The thriving Bamako du Chatelet is an obvious danger, but Pinwood remains one to keep onside now back at this trip and is fancied to resume winning ways in this penultimate leg of the Placepot.

16:30 - BREAKHEART (8) ran his best race for some time when second at Kempton six days ago, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal after a slow start and ultimately doing extremely well to get within a length and a quarter of the winner. He is far from guaranteed to back that effort up given his patchy profile of late, but the Andrew Balding yard could hardly be in better form at present (six winners from last 22 runners) and Breakheart is taken to regain the winning thread with a defeat of Dukes Meadow.

Recommendation:

Win back BREAKHEART in the 16:30 at Lingfield

Placepot permutation:

14:00 - 1
14:30 - 3
15:00 - 1
15:30 - 4
16:00 - 4
16:30 - 8
