Timeform bring you three bets from Lingfield and Doncaster on Friday...


"A 3lb rise looks fair for Chantara Rose and she looks a good bet."

Schoolboy Error - Lingfield 13:15

Jamie Osborne's three-year-old Schoolboy Error caught the eye maidens and has shaped well on both his starts in handicaps, looking the likely winner for most of the way over ten furlongs at Chelmsford last week but ultimately doing too much too soon. He remains with potential and, while unlikely to live up to his pedigree (he's a half-brother to Gold Cup winner Trip To Paris), can gain a deserved first success here returned to a mile and with his yard continuing among the winners.


Gonalston Cloud - Doncaster 14:00

Prolific point winner Gonalston Cloud made light work of a mark of 92 on return to Rules at Catterick last month, impressing with the way he travelled and jumped, and definitely value for more than his two-and-a-quarter-length winning margin over Jac The Legend (still going well when falling at the fourteenth next time). Gonalston Cloud left the impression he has more to offer, and he can get the better of his rivals here, with the predicted strong pace (with Winged Crusader, Grove Silver and Oliver's Hill in the field) sure to suit him given how he was ridden last time.


Chantara Rose - Doncaster 14:30

Chantara Rose signed off her spell with Peter Bowen with a career-best second to Iron Butterfly (followed up off 7 lb higher mark) in a C&D handicap last month, and she can gain a deserved first success here starting out for the Neil Mulholland stable which does well with its new recruits. Chantara Rose's latest performance was all the more encouraging considering the Bowen yard was out of form at the time, and she remains relatively unexposed after just six outings over fences, three of them in handicaps. A 3lb rise looks fair for Chantara Rose and she looks a good bet.
