Timeform's SmartPlays team pick out the best bets on Tuesday...


"This is a weak-looking race on paper, and he looks set to have a big say in the finish."

Capelita - 13:00 Southwell

Capelita looked a natural on this surface when bolting up on her first start for Michael Appleby last week, and a 6-lb rise for her demolition of a competitive-looking field that day should not stop her winning again, with the other in-form horse, Royal Holiday, needing to defy a career-high mark.


Fortinbrass - 15:30 Southwell

Fortinbrass has dropped to a career-low mark, and was well-backed last time on his return to this surface. He could only manage third that day, but he did not completely convince with his finishing effort in the closing stages, and hinted as though a return to six furlongs would suit. This is a weak-looking race on paper, and he looks set to have a big say in the finish.


Next Edition - 15:40 Wolverhampton

Next Edition hasn't won for some time, but he is lurking on an attractive mark, and put in his best effort of the season when second at this track last week by just a head. He was poorly placed that day and has obviously strong claims from the same mark here, so is worth backing to get the better of the unexposed Innish Man.
