Horses on dirt

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Woodbine and Penn National on Friday...

"...she is worth backing to bounce back to form..."

Timeform on Timberline

#5 Timberline - Woodbine R2 (18:38 BST)

Timberline was a bit below her best when only seventh last time, but her previous runner-up finish reads well, and she is worth backing to bounce back to form. Rebel Witha Chance is dropping in class and respected, while Blue Pearls is another with fair claims.

#4 Crabcakes - Penn R6 (01:16 BST)

Crabcakes arrives here in good form, having recorded a good runner-up finish in stakes company on turf last time. The switch back to dirt can only be a positive (all wins have come on the main track) and she is very much the one to beat back down in grade.

#5 Nico's Prize - Penn R8 (02:10 BST)

Nico's Prize was readily outpointed in a stakes race at Mountaineer last time and should appreciate stepping back into the shallower waters of the claiming ranks. He is taken to come out on top ahead of Judge Carr and W Giles.
