Timeform pick out three bets from Greyville on Sunday.


Bypass - Greyville 11:10

Bypass stands out on form here after his three-quarter length third to Subtropical when stepped up to this trip for the second time here on the turf course at the end of last month. That was his best run by far and the son of Byword seems to be improving at a rate of knots and if he can build even slightly on that, then Bypass ought to come home in front this morning.

Francesco - Greyville 11:45

Francesco stands out on form here for trainer Paul Lafferty after two third places in two starts so far, the latest when beaten less than two and a half lengths by Tom Collins when running on strongly after being stepped up to the mile. An added two furlongs today looks sure to play to his strengths and with jockey Diego De Gouveia outstanding value for his claim, Francesco looks the one they all have to aim at here.

Yess - Greyville 12:20

Yess is in the very capable hands of Joey Ramsden and has been getting better race on race with a length and a half fourth to Colour Your Dreams here on turf last time out over the mile, running on when the race was all but over. An added couple of furlongs may be ideal for the daughter of Australian bred sire Casino Prince and Yess can have supporters shouting his name if he wins this maiden this afternoon.
