Timeform pick out three bets from Kenilworth on Wednesday.


Second Nature - Kenilworth 13:55

Second Nature has been improving race on race lately with a fourth, a third, and most recently a second to O'Keeffe beaten less than half a length over course and distance. That was her fifth place from seven starts so she is overdue a win but it is not for lack of trying as she doesn't mind a battle, and today could be the day Second Nature wins her first race.

Emerald Gal - Kenilworth 15:40

Emerald Gal may have only taken a lowly maiden by three quarters of a length last time but did so a shade cleverly over course and distance, and looks to be peaking at the right time. A rating of 63 seems more than fair for her handicap debut when you look back at her placed form in races that have worked out well and Emerald Gal may well go on from here to slightly better contests.

Empire Rising - Kenilworth 16:15

Empire Rising has a few pounds in hand on official ratings and Harold Crawford's Gimmethegreenlight filly ran well enough last time to finish a three and a quarter length second over this trip at Durbanville when last seen in October to justify selection. The winner has won again since in the Grade Three Prix Du Cap so the form looks rock solid, and Empire Rising will be unlucky to run in to anything as smart as the winner again this afternoon.
