Timeform on Snazzy Jazzy

Timeform pick out their best back, lay and smart stat bets on Saturday...

Snazzy Jazzy - 15:00 Newbury

SNAZZY JAZZY dead-heated in a listed race at Salisbury last time, having no luck in-running under a furlong out, before staying on well to grab a share of the prize. He's a Group 2 winner on his final start last year and the way he ran on last time suggests he could well be an improved horse this year. The more rain the better for him, and with showers forecast at Newbury, he can get the better of The Tin Man, who hasn't necessarily shown his best form this year.

Oti Ma Boati - 18:45 Doncaster

OTI MA BOATI is now stepping into handicap company for the first time after winning two minor events, beating a well-regarded favourite last time. She could be vulnerable today, though, as she now has to give the re-opposing Pentewan 5 lb, rather than the 3 lb she did when accounting for her last time. Beaten just half a length that day, Pentewan has run respectably in all three of his minor events and could reverse the placings from what looks a fair opening mark, with Rosadora also looking a danger dropped down from listed level.

Battle Of Wills - 16:40 Ripon

23% - Daniel Tudhope's strike rate at RIPON

BATTLE OF WILLS split two subsequent winners on his penultimate start over C&D, which is strong form for the grade, and he again ran respectably at Haydock last time. The ground was livelier that day than he had encountered before, which might have been an excuse, and with showers forecast at Ripon, he can return to the form he showed over C&D to record another success for Daniel Tudhope, who has an excellent record at today's venue.
