Timeform Radio Tip: It's a Jungle out there

Today's best bets come from Yarmouth.

Rory Delargy has several fancies at Yarmouth on Sunday...

"Jungle Bay looks best in at the weights if rediscovering the pick of last year's form. He drops to 0-75 company for the first time since winning on turf at Lingfield just over a year ago, and that can prove the catalyst for a return to winning ways..."

Today's racing at Yarmouth doesn't exactly set the pulse racing, but one horse who catches the eye is the Jane Chapple-Hyam gelding Jungle Bay, who hasn't been firing on all cylinders this season, but makes a marked drop in class in the 14:30, and looks capable of exploiting a fair mark.

This 6f race isn't a strong one, even for this grade, with topweight Big Wave a likeable type, but now on a career-high mark, and looking vulnerable as a result. Course specialist Rough Rock has looked a declining force this year, and finished last of 8 here on his most recent outing. Amosite has won twice from the front this summer, but the handicapper has caught her up now, and she's not sure to take to a visor, while Putin is more effective in basement grade contests. Of those left, Diamondhead is much respected, with his latest AW effort easy to forgive, but it's Jungle Bay who looks best in at the weights if rediscovering the pick of last year's form. He ran in a much better race at Newmarket last time, showing up well for 5f, and not knocked about when his chance had gone, and the drop back to 6f should suit on that evidence. 

Of more importance, however, is the drop to 0-75 company for the first time since winning on turf at Lingfield just over a year ago, and that can prove the catalyst for a return to winning ways. He's priced up at around 6/1 at present, and that looks too big in a race where few make much appeal.
 
Another pair who make more obvious appeal on the Yarmouth card are Satwa Story (15:05) and Blessing Box (15:40), both of whom won last time, and look on a sharp upward curve at present. The former impressed when slamming his rivals in a 7f maiden at Wolverhampton, and has been given a very fair looking opening mark. He should have too many guns for the resurgent Tevez, who is the only other runner to make any appeal.

Blessing Box comes from a family which progresses well, and which trainer Chris Wall knows well, and she was full value for beating subsequent winner Green Monkey in a C&D handicap last time. She had Honeymoon Express back in third there, but can meet that rival on better terms as the latter must carry a penalty for winning a 6f maiden during the week. It's impossible to see past her, especially with further improvement in the pipeline.
