Timeform pick out three bets from Beverley and Market Rasen on Thursday...


"Conditions on the soft side of good won't be a problem for Jacbequick either given he's won on heavy, and he's ridden by a fully-fledged jockey (Danny Tudhope) for just the fifth time..."

Arab Poet - Beverley 14:50

Arab Poet looks the type who will progress through the handicap ranks this year and he can make a winning return for the Sir Michael Stoute yard that has started the season brightly, saddling six winners and a host of placed horses since its first runner earlier this month. Arab Poet needed four goes to get off the mark in maidens last year, but he was unfortunate to bump into Massaat (runner-up in the Dewhurst next time) when second at Leicester and then won smoothly from subsequent scorers Alshaqee and September Issue at Lingfield. Being by miler Poet's Voice out of a 10-furlong winner, the step up to the extended seven furlongs should suit Arab Poet, too.


Jacbequick - Beverley 16:20

Jacbequick was generally below par in 2015 but the switch to David O'Meara's yard could have a revitalising effect, as it has for many recruits from rival stables in the past, while the five-year-old is also 4 lb below his last winning mark and has three course wins on his CV. Conditions on the soft side of good won't be a problem for Jacbequick either given he's won on heavy, and he's ridden by a fully-fledged jockey (Danny Tudhope) for just the fifth time as he makes his 21st start. He ticks plenty of boxes.


Brother Scott - Market Rasen 17:50

Brother Scott showed a good attitude when winning at Hexham last September and, having had six months off, he shaped as though he'd be sharper for the run at Wetherby reappearance three weeks ago. Brother Scott has finished runner-up on all three of his outings since that last win, twice off a 1 lb higher mark than he runs off here, and he could be further rewarded for his consistency with the Sue Smith yard continuing to send out winners.
