Timeform pick out bets from three different venues on Thursday.
Ludorum - 15:25 Pontefract
Ludorum has a smart pedigree and looks the big potential improver on his handicap debut here from what could be a very workable opening mark (74). He pulled clear with a subsequent improver when winning his maiden at Ripon last time and should be able to build on that here from favourable draw. Alfred Richardson may have needed the run last time and still remains with potential.
King of Scotland - 15:45 Ayr
Things presumably weren't 100% well with King of Scotland on his last start at Lingfield but he was a good winner of a three-year-old handicap at Leicester prior to that (strong at the finish) on similar ground to this, so is worth another chance having been gelding and given a break. London Glory, Ghostly Arc and Hurricane Hollow head up the dangers.
Blue On Blue - 19:15 Chelmsford City
Blue On Blue has improved since switched to handicaps, not seen to best effect when third off this mark at Kempton in July, and makes plenty of appeal for team Gosden/Dettori. Tobrave is a danger if navigating his high draw, while Envisaging should go well again under De Sousa.
