Timeform pick out their best bets from Epsom and Goodwood on Tuesday.

"Her best efforts on the all-weather came over this trip, and, still unexposed on turf, she looks to have a strong chance here of landing the double..."

Nouvelli Dancer - 15:45 Epsom

Nouvelli Dancer has done all of her winning to date on the all-weather and recorded a fourth handicap success earlier this month at Chelmsford. She has some solid turf form to her name, too, however, including placed efforts at Chester and Redcar last month, and she could be worth chancing here now back on turf with Silvestre de Sousa - who won on her last time - retaining the ride. Giovanni Di Bicci has a similar profile to the selection (also done all his winning on the all-weather) and could be the danger after a good second last time at Brighton.

St Michel - 16:10 Goodwood

St Michel is a typically progressive Sir Mark Prescott-trained staying handicapper who has not finished out of the first two home in his last six starts and is unbeaten at this particular trip. His impressive win at Newmarket last time was his best effort to date, and he should have more to offer here, taking on a group of older horses with a handy three-year-old weight-for-age allowance. A 7 lb rise in the handicap may not be enough to deny him a fourth win this season. Percy Veer almost always runs his race, and is the obvious selection to follow St Michel home after finishing second in a warm handicap here last time.

You're A Goat - 16:55 Epsom

This step up in trip is likely to bring out even more from You're A Goat, who returned from a break in eye-catching style at Sandown in July and built on that when winning over a mile at Bath last time despite meeting some trouble in-running. Her best efforts on the all-weather came over this trip, and, still unexposed on turf, she looks to have a strong chance here of landing the double in a race against plenty of exposed older horses. Farham has dropped to 3 lb below his last winning mark and could be the danger.
