Timeform on Ballyblack Speed

Timeform highlight the three best bets at Hove on Thursday.

Mineola Lion (Trap 2) - 19:36 Hove

Mineola Lion (T2) can strike in this sprint. He's returned in fine form tackling the shorter trip, landing a gamble readily on Friday, and he should take the beating again.

Ballyblack Speed (Trap 1) - 21:12 Hove

Ballyblack Speed (T1) can resume winning ways here. He boasts a good strike-rate at Hove and has been ticking over nicely at Towcester, taking an open in impressive style at the start of May. This is easier and he might be hard to catch.

Bockos Newman (Trap 1) - 21:28 Hove

Bockos Newman (T1) looks solid in the finale. He's settled in nicely back at Hove, just edged out close home when well backed in a similar event on Friday, and could be set for a profitable summer.
