Timeform pick out three horses worth backing at Penn National on Friday...
"...makes plenty of appeal in a race that doesn't look as deep as the number of runners suggests."
Timeform on General Bellamy
Arrivederci might have needed his recent comeback run at Parx and should strip fitter for what looks an easier assignment. The Best Candy has the form to be right in the mix at his best and is also likely to be thereabouts, while Cattle Drive is another to take into account.
General Bellamy hasn't been with the top Timothy Kreiser outfit for too long and he makes plenty of appeal in a race that doesn't look as deep as the number of runners suggests. Avie's Mesa needs to prove as effective on dirt as other surfaces but could figure at a price, while Southside Warrior also needs a second look.
Torres Del Paine is the subject of a highly positive trainer change in this $10k claiming contest and should take all the beating. Papa Tony goes for one of the best trainers on this circuit and put in a good piece of work the other day, suggesting he's in top order. He can fill out the forecast, with Frost's Song fancied to grab third place.
