Timeform pick out their three best bets from Fontwell on Thursday...
"...he stormed clear in emphatic fashion at Newton Abbot 8 days ago, so there's no obvious reason to oppose him in his follow-up bid under a penalty."
Timeform on Eric The Third
Jackblack - Fontwell 18:20
Jackblack looks favourably handicapped judged on his back-to-back novice wins over C&D around this time last year, and he probably needed the run at Stratford last time, so he is well worth another chance. Holryale should give a good account returning to this sphere, while My Brother remains with potential now handicapping following 2 in-frame efforts.
Eric The Third - 18:50 Fontwell
Eric The Third has been a different horse for Tim Vaughan this year, with three wins from seven starts, and he stormed clear in emphatic fashion at Newton Abbot 8 days ago, so there's no obvious reason to oppose him in his follow-up bid under a penalty. Diplomatico, who's low mileage and going the right way, looks the chief threat ahead of Walk Waterford.
I'm Always Trying - Fontwell 19:20
I'm Always Trying disappointed at Uttoxeter last time, but he had made a winning start for Dan Skelton here prior to that and is taken to bounce straight back. Get Home Now will be a big threat if reacting positively to the refitting of blinkers, while Whatthebutlersaw is also respected on the back of his Huntingdon second in the spring.
