Timeform pick out three bets from Scottsville on Sunday.


Top Classman - Scottsville 11:30

Top Classman is better than the bare form figures suggest and the booking of Anthony Delpech by trainer Frank Robinson catches the eye and suggests today could be the day. A son of Mogok, he has looked short of pace in all three starts over seven furlongs and a mile but has been running on late and is fully expected to improve for this considerable step up in trip, and Top Classman can come home clear of the field this morning.

London Call - Scottsville 14:55

London Call has to give weight away all round in this field but has the class to do so and should prove hard to beat. He has already won eight of his fifteen starts and was only beaten two and a quarter lengths plus last time out in the Mercury Sprint when last in action over this trip, and a repeat of that effort after a short break will see London Call come home in front again this afternoon in this less competitive field.

Isca - Scottsville 15:30

Isca is a speedy sort who has struggled a little since winning over course and distance in December, but is now back on the same handicap mark and has every chance of scoring here again. He didn't get the clearest of runs at Greyville last time out in Listed class but still managed to finish fifth, less than three lengths off the winner, and off his new mark (dropped a pound), Isca looks the one to be on here for in-form trainer Gavin van Zyl.
