Timeform on Ledecka

Timeform head to Woodbine and Penn National for their three best bets on Saturday...

#5 Spanish Express - Woodbine R1 (18:05)

Spanish Express made all to win in a similar contest to this last time, after which he was claimed by current connections. He is fancied to make a winning start for his new barn, with Marten River and Piven looking the main dangers.

#7 Souper Fly Over - Woodbine R6 (20:38)

Souper Fly Over did well to win over 5f last time, a trip that's a bare minimum for him nowadays. He'll be much better suited by this return to 7f and is taken to come out on top once more. Slip Kid looks the one for the forecast.

#7 Ledecka - Penn National R4 (00:25)

Ledecka has yet to run on dirt, but this all-weather and turf winner is bred for the surface and should have too many guns for this allowance field. Elan looks best of the rest, but is racing for second if the selection shows up in top form.
