Timeform pick out three bets from Beverley and Goodwood on Sunday...


"Limonata may not be anywhere near as good as her illustrious half-brother Limato, but she appears to have enough ability to win a race or two..."

Best Boy - Beverley 15:30

This looks a weak handicap and, while Best Boy hasn't peaked as yet this year, he hasn't been running badly and it could be worth remembering his sole previous success came at this track 12 months ago, so he could be worth chancing. He's also down to that same mark and fitted with with a first-time visor, which are more reasons to expect a bold showing.


Coulsty - Goodwood 16:20

Convey will be hard to beat in the Group 3 Supreme Stakes if in the same form as when winning a Pontefract listed race in July, but he's not straightforward and failed to pick up dropped to this seven-furlong trip in the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury last time. A sporting alternative is Coulsty whose prominent racing style could give him an edge in what promises to be a tightly-knit and potentially muddling affair. Richard Hannon's charge resumed winning ways back up to this distance at Thirsk and has plenty of form that says he can win a second group race, including finishing a close second in last year's Hungerford.


Limonata - Beverley 17:15

Limonata may not be anywhere near as good as her illustrious half-brother Limato, but she appears to have enough ability to win a race or two and catches the eye making her handicap debut upped to a mile and a quarter here. Clearly, Limato wouldn't stay beyond mile, but the siblings' dam Come April did win over that distance and has shaped like she's worth a try beyond a mile. The Henry Candy yard continue among the winners, too.
