Timeform on Royal Armour

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

Master of Illusion - Greyville R1 (10:30 GMT)

Master of Illusion made a very promising start to his career when finishing third over five furlongs here 18 days ago and he looks the one to beat with improvement forthcoming. Master Vision may prove the biggest danger, while Candy Apple might be hard to keep out of the minor money.

Red Hot Night - Greyville R3 (11:40 GMT)

Red Hot Night produced a career-best performance when winning a handicap over five furlongs here last time and he again looks the one to beat with this step back up in trip not expected to be a problem. Dark Fate shouldn't be underestimated, though, while Fairbanks deserves some consideration, too.

Royal Armour - Greyville R7 (14:00 GMT)

Royal Armour arguably proved himself better than ever when winning a handicap over shorter at this course last time and, based on that performance, he should have no problem competing at this level. Emily Jay is next best, while Mr Roy is another that merits respect.
