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

"The handicapper continues to relent and she is worth chancing..."

Timeform on Hammie's Fan

Inertia - Kenilworth R2 (11:55 GMT)

This doesn't look a strong race and, on the balance on his form, Inertia could be the one to beat. He sets the standard on his third-place finish here in December and a similar performance ought to see him be competitive. Salt can also play a leading role, while Pega D'oro is another with the potential to figure.

Middle Wood - Kenilworth R4 (13:05 GMT)

Another maiden which shouldn't take much winning, and Middle Wood at least arrives in form. He finished fourth in a similar event over further here last time, but this trip should suit him better, and he is preferred to Swift Surprise and Saint West.

Hammie's Fan - Kenilworth R8 (15:25 GMT)

Hammie's Fan recorded her sole win at this course and shaped better than the bare result back here last time. The handicapper continues to relent and she is worth chancing to resume winning ways, likely at the main expense of Rocket Girl and Regal Ruby.
