Timeform UK SmartPlays: Sunday September 27

Epsom hosts a useful card on Sunday
Epsom hosts a useful card on Sunday

It's Epsom's final meeting of the season on Sunday and Timeform have picked out three bets on the card...


"He was far from disgraced at Kempton last time, and back from a short break is fancied to get back on the up here."

Epsom 15:15 - First Dream

First Dream took well to this track when winning a C&D handicap in good style in July, and though he hasn't run to that level in 2 starts since, he is taken to bounce back returned to this venue in a first-time visor. Intiwin has been holding his own in competitive handicaps, and looks sure to go well, along with Cosmic Ray, who should appreciate this likely better ground.


Epsom 15:45 - Arabian Illusion

Arabian Illusion caught the eye when winning a Goodwood maiden in authoritative fashion earlier this month. He seemed to appreciate the step up to this trip, and makes plenty of appeal on handicap debut from what looks a lenient mark. Another unexposed 3-y-o Rib Reserve may have more to offer and is feared most, ahead of One Pekan.


Epsom 16:20 - El Campeon

El Campeon has made big strides up the handicapping ladder this term, posting a career-best to score over C&D 2 starts ago. He was far from disgraced at Kempton last time, and back from a short break is fancied to get back on the up here. The consistent Strait of Magellan and the in-form pair Marengo and Leah Freya head up the dangers.
