Timeform pick out their three best bets on Sunday.

"Twenty Eight Guns finished fifth of eight that day, beaten 46 lengths by the winner West of The Edge, but she simply found 25f in the mud too much of a test..."

Try It Sometime - Ffos Las 14:35

It's hard to be sure what Try It Sometime achieved when winning at Uttoxeter last month given all of his nine rivals were pulled up, but it does show that he can cope with really testing conditions and he might be worth siding with here having been put up only 1 lb. Some Finish, who went through that race like the second-best horse until running out of puff dramatically, has come out and won since, too.

Berea Boru - Ffos Las 15:45

Berea Boru continued his race-by-race progression to get off the mark at the third attempt over fences at Chepstow earlier this month, and the runner-up Emma Soda has won since, so he must hold sound claims of following up here. Berea Boru clearly remains unexposed as a chaser and should have more to offer, while the fact all his three wins have come on heavy ground is another positive. Horatio Hornblower may prove his biggest danger, for all he still has room for improvement in his jumping.

Twenty Eight Guns - Ffos Las 16:15

This race features a group of averagely-treated mares, though Twenty Eight Guns finished runner-up on her second, third and fourth starts over hurdles and then shaped much better than the result when further down the field at Plumpton three weeks ago. Twenty Eight Guns finished fifth of eight that day, beaten 46 lengths by the winner West of The Edge, but she simply found 25f in the mud too much of a test (touched just over 2/1 in-running for the third start in a row), and she could well be the answer dropped back three furlongs in trip here.
