Timeform pick out three bets from Lingfield on Thursday...


Author's Dream - 15:10 Lingfield

A 3 lb rise in the weights for Author's Dream's good second at Wolverhampton in March looks lenient, and he very much stands out in terms of his profile in this field. His yard are in flying form, and he can provide them with another winner. Night Generation looked a bit unlucky when only narrowly denied by the reopposing Ascendant on his latest start and should go well again, while Topalova ran well at Chelmsford last month.

Theos Lolly - 15:40 Lingfield

Theos Lolly may have needed the run when only fifth on his reappearance at Pontefract last time, and with the handicapper having now dropped him 2 lb below his last winning mark, he makes appeal at the track where he won his maiden. Synodic has been going through a tremendous spell on the all-weather over the last few months and will probably run his race once again, while Bridge of Sighs is a likable sort who is also considered.

Pearly Prince - 17:10 Lingfield

Pearly Prince is lightly raced for a five-year-old, and with just five starts in handicaps to his name, may be capable of better yet. He met significant trouble late on here last time and was really motoring late on, so is well worth chancing to make ammends from the same mark with Silvestre de Sousa back in the saddle. Attain has a solid record over C&D and is much respected on the back of a good run on turf.
