Timeform pick out three bets from Newmarket and Wetherby on Friday...


Perfect Angel - Newmarket 15:00

Perfect Angel showed improved form when second on her penultimate outing in the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury and ran to a similar level when third in a listed race at York last time. She showed a likeable attitude on that occasion, travelling strongly on the front end throughout and keeping on well to finish within a length and a quarter of the smart winner. That form leaves her rivals with 2 lb to find on ratings here and, although the unexposed Loving is an obvious danger, Perfect Angel is fancied to make the most of what looks a good opportunity and can gain some valuable black type with victory in this listed prize.

Cliffs of Dover - Wetherby 15:55 (LAY)

Cliffs of Dover was an impressive winner of his most recent outing at Cheltenham seven days ago, travelling smoothly into contention as the field entered the straight and quickly asserting up the demanding hill. That was his third victory in the space of seven days, but it remains to be seen how much those exertions will have taken out of him and he looks worth laying at the prices currently on offer. Indeed, even his best form gives him a bit to find with Rainbow Dreamer on Timeform ratings here, while Master Blueyes and Nietzsche would have plenty to recommend them if transferring their useful Flat form to this discipline.

Alfredo - Newmarket 16:45

Alfredo opened his account on the Flat with a narrow victory at Lingfield last month and could hardly have been more impressive when following up at Wolverhampton 13 days ago. He appeared to have matters in control from some way out on that occasion, taking up the running with three furlongs to run and quickly forging clear some 12 lengths clear. The return to turf is a slight concern given his recent improvement has come on an artificial surface, but Alfredo should prove extremely difficult to beat if reproducing the same level of form and is fancied to defy a 13 lb hike in the weights with a defeat of Albahar.
