Timeform pick out three bets from Doncaster and Kelso on Thursday.


Black Ivory - Kelso 13:05

Black Ivory opened his account over hurdles at the second attempt at Hexham in October and progressed further to make a successful handicap debut at Uttoxeter last time. He found plenty when challenged in the closing stages that day and, while a 7 lb hike in the weights makes life tougher here, Black Ivory remains open to more improvement after just three starts over obstacles and is taken to complete the hat-trick with a defeat of the thriving Jet Master.

Kalane - Doncaster 14:05

Kalane was an impressive winner of her most recent outing at this venue, quickly drawing some 17 lengths clear in the closing stages and producing the best effort of her career to date in the process. There could be more to come on just her third start for the Amy Murphy yard here and - 3 lb clear of her nearest rival on Timeform ratings - Kalane is fancied to take this step up in class in her stride and can follow up with a defeat of the unexposed Briery Belle.

Miss Mash - Doncaster 15:40

Miss Mash showed improved form to get off the mark at Bangor seven days ago, still on the bridle when hitting the front three-out and quickly asserting thereafter. That form leaves her 3 lb clear of her nearest rival on Timeform ratings here and, with the possibility of even more to come if brushing up on her jumping, Miss Mash is fancied to see off the attentions of recent Leicester winner Kassis and can defy a 7 lb penalty for the in-form Henry Daly yard.
