Timeform bring you a couple of all-weather bets and one over jumps on Friday...

Captain Whoosh shaped with promise on his first start for John Quinn when finishing a close-up third over C&D, despite not getting the run of the race...

Chepstow 14:55 - Eastern Witness

Eastern Witness was ultimately well beaten on his first start over fences at Bangor last time, but he shaped much better than the bare result implies, showing a real aptitude for chasing, and he should be given another chance. Easter Witness jumped boldly, travelled strongly and looked set to play a part in the finish before stopping quickly. It's a bit disconcerting that he shaped similarly the time before, so there may be some sort of issue, but we'll take a chance that he can see things out better over this shorter trip. 

Lingfield 15:10 - Steady Major

Steady Major showed improved form on his return from a break over C&D recently, finishing a good second, and he can register a first success this afternoon. Steady Major is lightly raced, particularly over this sort of trip, so there could yet be better to come, while the form of his latest second just about sets the standard anyway.

Wolverhampton 19:15 - Captain Whoosh

Captain Whoosh shaped with promise on his first start for John Quinn when finishing a close-up third over C&D, despite not getting the run of the race. Captain Whoosh was forced to wait for a gap here last time and that proved costly, but he is clearly on a fair mark and should go close this afternoon.
