We start our day’s previews with a six furlong handicap where whips will be carried but not used.
Lead A Merry Dance starts as favourite after she completed a quick fire double last month; she’s been raised eleven pounds since her first win and the handicapper may of just caught up to her now.
Smart Salute has been competing in a lot better company than this recently and hasn’t been disgraced at all; he’s managed to place a couple of times in that grade off this mark and could be the one to beat today if producing that form around here.
Little Bign Man seems to do all his winning on the all-weather but he has every chance of a place if getting to terms with this surface.
Bush beauty usually runs over seven furlongs these days and is another who has thrived on the all-weather and is another to note.
Gung Ho Jack looks the interesting one for me as he’s been given a helping hand from the handicapper and by his jockey’s seven pound claim to get back to winning ways and may just have enough to take this today.

We head to the polytrack for our second preview a 15 furlong handicap.
Topaling completed a four timer back in January with one her wins on this track; she hasn’t seemed to of coped with her penalty on her last two occasions and being raised a further three pounds and Stepping up in trip raises question marks around her.
Censorius is probably back down to the right grade after being tried in a class three last time out where he finished nine lengths behind the winner but he was traveling well for a long time in that race and it would be no surprise to see him in the mix.
While You Wait loves it around here and has placed twice and won on all three starts here this year; he seems highly priced with such a good record around here and should once again grab a place.
Seen And Be Seen usually comes good this time of year and proved that by winning over course and distance this time last year; he looks very well treated for this today and gets my vote.
Seen And Be Seen (E/W if 9/2 +)
20:35 Lingfield Park
Our final preview is also the final race of the night at Lingfield a ten furlong handicap.
Thecornishcowboy finally got back to winning ways around here eight days ago and will have to try and defy a six pound penalty here today; he won five times off this kind of mark last year and may not be done yet.
Diletta Tommasa has been heavily backed in in the past few hours but even with Richard Hughes on board there is nothing substantial in her recent form to see her winning this today.
Two Minds looks very promising after finishing third back in April after nearly two years away from the track; he’s a very lightly raced eight year old but did show a lot of potential and could do better today.
