Timeform pick out three bets from the UK on Thursday.


Verygoodverygood - 13:35 Towcester

The form of Verygoodverygood's win at Chepstow last time (under a 7 lb penalty for his win at Ffos Las prior to that) is probably not the strongest, but he is just 1 lb higher in the weights here and is hard to ignore with the potential for more to come given his progressive profile. Vive Le Roi could also have more to offer as he makes his handicap debut for Charlie Longsdon and could be a threat.

Texas Forever - 15:15 Towcester

Texas Forever's career under rules is only four starts old but that hasn't stopped him burning a few fingers, and he was strong in the market on both his hurdling debut (well beaten), and chasing debut last time at Huntingdon (fell at the first fence). A winning pointer, he is expected to prove better than this mark over fences at some stage, and is worth chancing in a modest affair. Vinnieslittle Lamb is interesting following a long spell on the sidelines for a new yard, but has obvious risks attached.

King Cole - 18:25 Chelmsford City

With Robert Cowell hitting top form in recent days this can go to the returning King Cole, who remains with potential with just three starts under his belt so far. He was below form at Salisbury when last seen but had posted a win and a second on the all-weather prior to that, and with the return to this surface looking a big plus, he can get back on track under Joe Fanning. Elsewhere, Outrage was unlucky on his penultimate start and is probably still on a competitive mark.
