Timeform pick out their three best bets for the action from Huntingdon, Lingfield and Sedgefield on Thursday...

"He was successful twice in points since leaving Nicky Henderson, and he can get off the mark on just his second start under rules for the in-form Sue Smith yard here."

Ultimate Dream - Huntingdon 14:15

Jonjo O'Neill's yard have turned a corner in recent weeks, and Ultimate Dream can provide him with another winner on Thursday in what looks a weak contest on paper. At five, Ultimate Dream is the youngest horse in the race, and with only four career starts under rules behind him, he remains unexposed. Ultimate Dream did not go unsupported in the market for a warmer race than this on his handicap debut at Doncaster last time, and he may well be able to get off the mark here. Tommy The Rascal was behind the selection on his penultimate start, but could reduce the deficit with first-time cheekpieces, while Shaddaii is respected on his first start for a new yard.

My Target - Lingfield 15:45

My Target ran right up to his best in a tight finish at Chelmsford last time out, and should go close if in the same kind of form again. It paid to be handy that day, and My Target perhaps deserved extra credit for getting to within a length of the winner, having made his challenge from further back than ideal. Fleckerl - one place behind the selection last time - won impressively at Lingfield on Monday, and My Target may be able to give the form another boost here. Franco's Secret can reverse Kempton form with Justice First and fill the forecast spot.

Charlie Wingnut - Sedgefield 16:40

Charlie Wingnut made his first start under rules for nearly four years with a promising second over C&D earlier this month. He was successful twice in points since leaving Nicky Henderson, and he can get off the mark on just his second start under rules for the in-form Sue Smith yard here. Sign Manual and Almost Gemini are likely to pose the greatest threat to the selection.
