Timeform pick out three bets from Greyville on Sunday...


Stelvio - Greyville 12:10

Stelvio ran a superb race on her debut at Scottsville when a solid two length second to Dame Commander, despite being sent off at a very easy to back 66/1 chance for astute trainer James Goodman. Rested a month before her next race here, the daughter of Pathfork sticks to the same six-furlong trip today and Stelvio can confirm the form with Ally Whoopee with any signs of the expected improvement.

Monks Hood - Greyville 12:45

Monks Hood is turning in to quite a decent sort after just the three races with a maiden win at Scottsville first time out followed by a two length third and then a three-quarter length fourth here over the mile in the Premier Champions Stakes at the end of July. That is top class form regardless, and if the son of Querari is allowed to bowl along near the front dropped in trip and class, then it is hard to see how Monks Hood can be passed and beaten this afternoon in this field.

Wild Wicket - Greyville 15:00

Wild Wicket is the form choice here for trainer Duncan Howells and jockey Keagan de Melo after he followed a pair of seconds here, one each on turf and polytrack, with his third career win when seeing off Saint Marco by a nose at Scottsville. He has been put up three pounds for that but was running on strongly over the mile and may improve again for the added furlong this afternoon, which could well be enough to see Wild Wicket get to the front once again today.
