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

"...this doesn't look the strongest race of its type, and she is worth chancing from the plum draw in stall 1..."

Timeform on Society Star

Tomily - 14:20 Lingfield

Several in with a chance in this open-looking handicap. Tomily was well held on turf last time but had shaped well at Kempton back from a 12-week break prior to that, and he's back down to the same mark as when striking over C&D on his last visit here in March. He is marginally preferred to Corinthia Knight and the in-form Captain Lars, while Gracious John will also be a threat if on-song.

Society Star - 14:50 Lingfield

Society Star was much improved from her debut when finishing third in a minor event at Wolverhampton last month, slowly into stride and still looking rough around the edges, but made good headway out wide entering the straight, leaving the impression she has more to offer. That may come in handicaps, but this doesn't look the strongest race of its type, and she is worth chancing from the plum draw in stall 1. Rock Bottom is another potential improver who also commands respect.

Meerpat - 15:20 Lingfield

Meerpat caught the eye at Wolverhampton recently and, currently lurking on a potentially handy mark, she could be the answer. Kath's Lustre lost little caste in defeat in 0-75 company here last time and she has to be feared but Angel of The South may emerge as the main danger if responding well to the first-time visor. Hollander, another sporting a visor for the first time, also merits respect.
