Timeform pick out three bets from Salisbury and Nottingham on Tuesday...
"The consistent Rococoa is an obvious danger, but she has 8 lb to find with the selection on Timeform ratings..."
Never Surrender - Salisbury 14:00
Never Surrender shaped well when eighth on his racecourse debut at Newbury last month, travelling smoothly into contention as the field entered the final three furlongs and only weakening when the lack of a previous outing began to tell in the closing stages. That form gives him just 2 lb to find with Arborist on Timeform ratings and - entitled to improve with that initial experience under his belt - Never Surrender is fancied to confirm the promise of his debut and get off the mark at the second time of asking.
Prince Cardamom - Salisbury 16:30
Prince Cardamom brought up the double with a comfortable success at Lingfield on Saturday, defying a 2 lb higher mark than when previously successful at Chepstow and returning to something like the fair form he showed as a three-year-old for Andrew Balding. The quick turnaround is an obvious concern, but the conditions of that race mean he escapes a penalty and - 7 lb clear of the unexposed Infiniti on Timeform ratings here - Prince Cardamom should prove extremely difficult to beat if arriving in the same form.
Lajatico - Nottingham 19:05
Lajatico was an impressive winner of her penultimate outing at Lingfield and proved her effectiveness on turf with a similarly dominant victory at Newmarket on Friday. She pulled clear of a fairly useful sort with the minimum of fuss on that occasion and connections have understandably taken the decision to turn her out quickly under a penalty. The consistent Rococoa is an obvious danger, but she has 8 lb to find with the selection on Timeform ratings and Lajatico is taken to complete the hat-trick.
