Timeform pick out three bets from Plumpton and Uttoxeter on Sunday.


"She remains one to keep onside given the progress she has made of late..."

Baltic Storm - Plumpton 14:00

Baltic Storm ran creditably and was arguably unlucky not to give the winner more to think about when second at Ludlow in April, enduring a troubled passage as the field began the turn for home and keeping on when making a bad mistake at the final flight. The form of his previous victory at Fakenham puts him well clear on Timeform ratings and - with trainer Charlie Mann in such fine form at present (four winners and a second from last six runners) - Baltic Storm is expected to see off the attentions of Bleu Et Noir and can make a successful return from five months off the track.

Vic's Last Stand - Uttoxeter 15:10

Vic's Last Stand was a dominant winner of her penultimate outing at Sedgefield and defied a 7 lb penalty when following up back at that venue just seven days later. She looked in control from a long way out on that occasion, travelling strongly into the lead as the field took the fifth flight and only needing to be pushed out to assert in the closing stages. She remains one to keep onside given the progress she has made of late and Vic's Last Stand is fancied to complete the hat-trick off a mark 6 lb higher than when successful last time, with Juwireya feared most of the remainder.

Saint Charles - Uttoxeter 16:10

Saint Charles wasn't seen to best effect when fourth on his most recent outing at Southwell, making a terrible mistake at the third-last and unable to recover the ground lost. He is better-judged on the form of his previous success at the same venue and remains open to more improvement after just three starts over fences. He doesn't appear too harshly treated on a mark of 127 for his handicap debut and Saint Charles should be backed to take his record in this sphere to two wins from four starts, with Surf And Turf an obvious danger if building on the promise of his stable bow.
