Timeform's Tony McFadden highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Pontefract on Wednesday.
"...left the impression he's back in good order and capable of striking from a lenient mark..."
Melody King - 16:50 Pontefract
Melody King has fallen below his last winning mark and has shaped the last twice like he's ready to take advantage. Melody King fared best of those who were held up when fourth at Nottingham in June and he then looked unlucky not to go close when filling the same position at Beverley last week in a race that wasn't run at a flat-out gallop. Melody King would have benefited from a stronger pace, while he was also inconvenienced by some late trouble, but he left the impression he's back in good order and capable of striking from a lenient mark.
Tangled - 15:50 Pontefract
Tangled is on a losing run of 11 that stretches back to June of last year but he has been given a chance by the handicapper and has shaped well on a couple of occasions this season. Tangled went close to winning at Beverley in June and he bounced back from a disappointing display at Carlisle when a close-up fourth at Ripon last month in a race that didn't see him to best effect. He was hampered over two furlongs out and had to wait for a gap, but he kept on in encouraging fashion and can build on that promise granted better luck.
