Timeform pick out three bets from Greyville on Friday.


Luna Child - Greyville 15:40

Luna Child caught everyone's eye when a solid two length third to Light On Her Toes here over a furlong shorter when slowly away before getting the idea of what was needed and running on well at the death. Glen Kotzen's newcomers invariably improve with experience and with Anton Marcus booked to ride, Luna Child ought to be the one to beat today.

Sniper Shot - Greyville 16:50

Sniper Shot is looking to land his hat-trick after two victories here, one on the polytrack and most recently on the turf in a race that is working out well, with the runner up and sixth both winning since. The drop back in trip today is of no concern and Paul Lafferty will expect Sniper Shot to shrug off top weight with ease under top jockey Anton Delpech.

Secret Captain - Greyville 19:45

Secret Captain has a distinct race fitness edge over his market rivals after a rock solid second to Janoobi over the mile here last time out when he stayed on strongly at the end of the Grade Two Daisy Guineas. Dropped in class this afternoon and up in trip, this is still a very strong field but Duncan Howells has his string in fine form of late and Secret Captain can come home in front for only the second time this evening.
