Lingfield races tips, racecard, declarations and preview for the meeting live on ITV and Sky Sports Racing this Saturday, February 23

We've all got all you need to know about the top class meeting right here.

Race 1 – 1.30 Betway Live Casino Handicap

This is a competitive opener and one that can go the way of NARJES. 

He's top weight but is as consistent as they come and produced a nice turn of foot to take the spoils last time.

The booking of Adam Kirby takes the eye on Hidden Depths and he can follow the selection home, along with Rakematiz.

VERDICT – 1. Narjes 2. Hidden Depths 3. Rakematiz

Race 2 – 2.05 Betway Hever Sprint Stakes (Listed Race)

Expect GORGEOUS NOORA to fly late here on this drop back to the minimum trip.

She's been running very well over six furlongs and finished a fine second to the remarkable Kachy at this track last time.

Encore D'Or will be tough to beat, while Royal Birth is a useful tool in this kind of grade.

VERDICT – 1. Gorgeous Noora 2. Encore D'Or 3. Royal Birth

Race 3 – 2.35 Betway Casino Handicap

Nothing appeals more than the rapidly improving FEARSOME.

Nick Littmoden's five-year-old has been at the top of his game, winning his last four starts, and he can complete the five-timer up in the weights.

Technological probably has more to give in first-time cheekpieces, while Cosmeapolitan is still unexposed in these conditions.

VERDICT – 1. Fearsome 2. Technological 3. Cosmeapolitan

Race 4 – 3.15 Betway Winter Derby Stakes (Group 3)

This should be a walk in the park for future Group 1 contender WISSAHICKON.

He's been way too good for his rivals in his prep runs and this looks no tougher.

Master The World won this race last year and can probably fill out second spot.

Hathal is improving and can take third.

VERDICT – 1. Wissahickon 2. Master The World 3. Hathal

Race 5 – 3.50 Follow Sun Racing On Twitter Handicap

OH THIS IS US is a very smart performer on his day and can take this contest.

He's been running in better races than this and looks a class apart.

Apex King won well for Laura Coughlan last time and her 7lb claim is very useful.

Main Street can nab third spot.

VERDICT – 1. Oh This Is Us 2. Apex King 3. Main Street
