Timeform pick out their three best bets from Woodbine on Saturday...

"...he looks worth backing to give trainer David Menuisier a breakthrough success at the top level..."

Timeform on Thundering Blue

#8 PREFERRED GUEST - Woodbine R5 (20:24 BST)

PREFERRED GUEST has showed plenty of ability in finishing placed in both of her starts so far and, dropping down markedly in grade for this $45 maiden, she should take all the beating as he attempts to make it third time lucky. She Calls It and Miss Ariel look best of the rest.

#2 THUNDERING BLUE - Woodbine R9 (22:41 BST)

The pick of THUNDERING BLUE's form in the UK, including when third behind Roaring Lion in the Juddmonte International at York in August, is easily the best on offer here, and he looks worth backing to give trainer David Menuisier a breakthrough success at the top level. Funtastic and German raider Khan head the list of dangers.

#9 PROCTOR'S LEDGE - Woodbine R10 (23:18 BST)

PROCTOR'S LEDGE was a comfortable winner of a Grade 2 at Churchill Downs in May and could offer a spot of value here as she attempts to get back to winning ways, having proved her worth at this level with a couple of close-up finishes during the summer. Santa Monica is feared most ahead of Elysea's World.
