There are eight races at Lingfield on Wednesday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Lingfield on Tuesday...

"...she could make it second time lucky with improvement surely on the cards."

Timeform on Hostess

Hostess - Lingfield 14:30

Hostess shaped well in a race at Newmarket on debut that has thrown up winners, showing plenty of ability under a considerate ride, and she could make it second time lucky with improvement surely on the cards. Alexa Rose was another eyecatcher first time up at Windsor and seems sure to progress. Asaatier and Night Secret are a couple of interesting newcomers.

Lethal Lunch - Lingfield 15:30

Lethal Lunch had little chance when finishing second behind a well-in rival at Newbury last time, not seen to best effect from his position and always up against it, but he emerged with credit in finishing second and is expected to be very competitive from the same mark if as effective on the AW. Margub remains with potential at this level and is second choice.

Rapier - Lingfield 16:30

Rapier has had excuses in his two starts since opening his account at Doncaster in July, with the steady pace being no use for him at Kempton last time out. This could well turn out to be a good opening for him with main-danger Oasis Fantasy notoriously tricky to win with, and Groveman's mark now looking high enough.
