Timeform pick out their three best bets from Warwick on Friday...

"...he finished with plenty of running left in him at the line and he looks up to defying a penalty..."

Timeform on Flegmatik

My Way - 13:10 Warwick

It was encouraging My Way saw his race out much better than on his two previous starts for the yard at Taunton last time, travelling fluently and just unable to get on terms with the winner after the last. It would come as no surprise if he were to fare better again with his yard going great guns at present. One For Rosie disappointed at Carlisle latest but it remains very early days, while New Quay remains with potential having had excuses since bolting up on his Ascot handicap debut.

Flegmatik - 13:40 Warwick

Flegmatik landed some nice bets and created a good impression when scoring on his stable debut at Wetherby over Christmas, delivering in style, too, travelling strongly and taking command three out before powering on to win by 11 lengths. The pertinent point was that he finished with plenty of running left in him at the line and he looks up to defying a penalty before going on to even bigger things. Song For Someone is a useful dual winner, while Nebuchadnezzar was a shade disappointing at Kempton last time but may still prove best of the remainder.

Emmas Joy - 16:30 Warwick

Emmas Joy's second place finish in a listed bumper at Huntingdon last time (form already boosted by the third) marked her down as one of the top mares in this division. She again shaped like a stayer, prominent but outpaced on the home turn before staying on in the final furlong to be nearest the finish, and she should be capable of defying a penalty despite strong competition from the likes of Whitehotchillifili and appealing newcomers Burren Walk and Notawordofalie.
