Timeform pick out three bets from Carlisle, Goodwood and Haydock on Friday...


"Mujazif starts out for Mick Appleby on a very tempting mark sporting a refitted tongue tie and market support for him would look very significant."

Anieres Boy - Carlisle 15:05

Anieres Boy took a step forward from his three-year-old exploits when third at Thirsk on his return less than two weeks ago, and with the promise of more to come given his unexposed profile, he gets the nod to build on that here. Mick Easterby's charge showed none of the quirks that marred his win at Beverley (hung badly left late on) last back-end when chasing home Gaelic Wizard on that reappearance, and two of those that finished behind him that day have won since.


Ruwaiyan - Goodwood 16:35

This is a competitive six-furlong handicap, for all there are only eight runners, but a chance is taken on Ruwaiyan, who won the corresponding race in good style 12 months ago and is off a mark only 1 lb higher this time around. Ruwaiyan has also run well at this track on a couple of other occasions, including when fourth in the 2014 Stewards' Cup (off a mark 2 lb higher than his current one), and he could easily go well again on this return.


Mujazif - Haydock 21:00

Mujazif starts out for Mick Appleby on a very tempting mark sporting a refitted tongue tie and market support for him would look very significant. The stable switch (from Dandy Nicholls) is a Trainer Uplift on the Timeform Race Card, and Mujazif is now down to a career-low handicap mark of 67 (he won of 84 in 2014 and was fourth of eight off 85 last year).
