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


Moonshine Dancer - Lingfield 12:25

Moonshine Dancer shaped well when fourth on her racecourse debut at Newcastle last month, forced to deliver her challenge from further back than ideal in a slowly-run race and ultimately doing extremely well to get within two lengths of the better-placed winner. That form leaves her 5 lb clear of her nearest rival on ratings here and - likely to improve with that initial experience under her belt - Moonshine Dancer is taken to see off the attentions of newcomer Influent and can open her account at the second time of asking.

Bunbury - Lingfield 14:05

Bunbury caught the eye when fourth on his return from four months off the track at Wolverhampton recently, forced wide on the turn into the straight and keeping on well in the closing stages without being subjected to anything like a hard ride. He certainly showed enough to suggest he is up to picking up a race from this mark and, with Shane Kelly taking over in the saddle here, Bunbury is taken to confirm the promise of that latest outing and can regain the winning thread with a defeat of the lightly-raced Spin Point.

Artful Rogue - Lingfield 14:35

Artful Rogue was an impressive winner of his most recent outing over this C&D, conceding first run to the similarly well-handicapped runner-up and finding plenty in the final furlong to score with a bit in hand. The front pair pulled some nine lengths clear of the third on that occasion and, while a 6 lb hike in the weights make life tougher here, Artful Rogue should prove extremely difficult to beat if arriving in the same form and shades the vote from the unexposed three-year-old Hermannn.
