Timeform on Madeeh

Timeform pick out their best back, lay and stats-based bets at Southwell and Musselburgh on Thursday...

Madeeh - 21:00 Musselburgh

Madeeh joined Phillip Kirby's yard some 23 lb higher than when he finally put it all together at Catterick last time, taking advantage of the chance he had been given by the handicapper to win with plenty in hand. He is clearly well treated under a penalty here and should take plenty of beating.

Rebel Soldier Boy - 19:30 Musselburgh

Rebel Soldier Boy had all his ducks in a row when getting off the mark at Catterick last time, getting a strong pace to aim at and managing to hold his position better in first-time cheekpieces. He justified market support easily enough in the end on that occasion, but is unlikely to get so much in his favour this time around.

Smart Stat
Gavrocheka - 15:00 Southwell

22% - Richard Johnson's strike rate at Southwell

Gavrochenka finished runner-up in three starts over hurdles before finally getting her head in front at Market Rasen earlier this month, grinding her way to the front to get the better of one who has advertised the form well since. She is up just 2 lb for that win and shouldn't find that too big an obstacle to overcome.
