Timeform on Ballycrystal Court

Timeform take you through the twilight meeting at Kelso on Wednesday...

15:40 - NIETZSCHE (1) can put his chasing experience to use and gain a third win over fences in the opener. Brian Ellison's charge has scored twice at Perth and ran well in a strongly-run useful handicap at Cartmel three weeks ago. He should have the measure of Newtown Boy, who starts out for Keith Dalgleish after failing to complete on his chase debut at Market Rasen in May when last seen.

16:15 - GLORIOUS LADY (4) looks set for more success in the novice hurdle. A point and bumper winner, she made a pleasing return when scoring on her first run over timber at Bangor last month, taking to it well, and is sure to progress.

16:45 - BALLYCRYSTAL COURT (5) can win again for Rebecca Menzies. The seven-year-old was deserving of extra credit when opening his account over fences in a messy contest at Market Rasen that saw just eight of the fourteen flights jumped. He had to make his move earlier than ideal but saw things out strongly and there is more to come from him.

17:15 - GRIS DE PRON (9) makes plenty of appeal. A return to hurdling has sparked Henry Hogarth's charge back into life and he followed up a good run at Market Rasen with victory at Sedgefield. He's up just 3 lb and remains well treated on his best form.

17:45 - THEFLYINGPORTRAIT (2) can return to form with victory back at Kelso. He's got a good record at the track and all his old fire remains judged on his second at Aintree in June.

18:15 - ONE NIGHT IN MILAN (2) is well placed to make it five wins from his last five completed runs. He picked up where he left off last season with a bloodless success in a course and distance handicap last week and should be far too good for his three rivals.

18:45 - NOTAWORDOFALIE (5) can get off the mark in the bumper. She was clearly all the better for her debut when third at Worcester back from six months off, shaping well, and should have even more to offer for Jonjo O'Neill.
