Timeform on Coolagh Magic

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Wolverhampton on Thursday...

Water's Edge - 14:50 Wolverhampton

Plenty of collateral form to weigh up, with Water's Edge the pick with this trip sure to suit having been inconvenienced by a messy race when behind Gantier here a month ago. He was easy to back on that occasion, and seemed unsuited by the emphasis on speed in a four-runner race, not able to quicken having been left quite well apart from first pair. There should be more to come from him and he is well worth another chance. Paradise Boy and Caplin also clashed last time, with the former taken to come out on top in that duel.

Coolagh Magic - 15:55 Wolverhampton

Coolagh Magic has progressed well on the all-weather this winter, successful twice in January prior to catching the eye when third over this C&D five weeks ago, a slow start arguably costing him victory. The handicapper has taken a chance with his mark given the form of his previous two victories and, granted he breaks on terms, he is fully expected to resume winning ways. El Hombre is proving consistent himself and is feared, ahead of another likeable sort, Sandridge Lad.

Ustath - 16:30 Wolverhampton

Ustath is bred to be a useful sprinter and showed plenty of ability in filling the runner-up spot on each of his first two starts as a juvenile last term. His Nottingham effort in the autumn was a shade underwhelming, but on the pick of his form, he very much looks the one to beat in this field and rates the type who should have strengthened up over the winter, so is fancied to make a winning return. Mawakib is steadily going the right way and is feared, ahead of the returning Serengeti Song.
