Timeform on Eden Roc

Timeform pick out their three best bets from a stellar card at Greyville on Saturday afternoon.

Eden Roc - Greyville R6, 14:15 BST

Eden Roc has made the perfect start to his career so far, and extended his winning run to three when taking a Grade 2 contest over seven furlongs last time. The step up to a mile should hold no fears, and he's a strong fancy to pick up a second career Grade 1 success. Wave should be thereabouts too, while Putontheredlight isn't dismissed lightly.

Kasimir - Greyville R8, 16:00 BST

Kasimir was a solid second in a Grade 2 contest over C&D last month on return from an 111-day absence, and with that now under his belt he's the percentage call in an open-looking Grade 1 affair. Celtic Sea rates as the toughest threat, while Bold Respect is another to consider.

Undercover Agent - Greyville R9, 16:45 BST

Undercover Agent was slightly below form when finishing fifth in a Grade 1 contest over a mile here in June, but he had been at the top of his game in two starts prior to that this term, and is fancied to capitalise on the step up to ten furlongs and return to winning ways. Rainbow Bridge and Infamous Fox can chase the selection home.
