Timeform pick out three bets from three different tracks on Thursday...
Sky of Stars - 13:30 Fontwell
Olly Murphy has made an excellent start to his training career, and Sky of Stars has been one of his flag bearers winning two of his three starts for the yard. He did well to win under the circumstances at Market Rasen last time, badly hampered at the sixth, losing momentum, but creeping back into the race on the home turn and staying on well to prevail by just over a length. The handicapper has raised him a further 7 lb, but still relatively unexposed over hurdles, he's entitled to do better still, and is fancied to complete a hat-trick. Raleagh Mountain on debut for Dan Skelton will be of interest though if strong in the market.
Mutineer - 14:20 Salisbury
Mutineer has took off on the all-weather recently, winning his last two starts in good style, the latest under a penalty at Wolverhampton last week. The way he wandered about a bit when hitting the front before forging clear to score by five lengths suggests he had more in hand than the eventual winning margin. He has to shoulder a double penalty now, and prove he can back his recent improvement up returned to turf, but he is worth chancing to do so with the excellent value claimer Edward Greatrex retaining the ride. Pick A Little and Mcdelta may emerge best of the remainder.
Maghfoor - 16:40 Beverley
Something must have been amiss with Maghfoor when he was last seen in May but, given his pedigree and the promise he'd shown prior to that, he should be well capable of getting back to winning ways up against some exposed handicappers going markedly up in trip, though his stamina will have to be taken on trust. The well-treated Bulas Belle could give him most to think about, with Tim Easterby's last-time-out winner Attention Seaker hard to ignore, also.
