Timeform pick out three bets from Southwell and Taunton on Tuesday.


Custard The Dragon - Southwell 15:10

Custard The Dragon was a cosy winner of his most recent outing over this C&D, staying on strongly to lead close home and making it three wins from his last four starts in the process. He has a further 4 lb rise in the weights to contend with here, but remains one to keep onside in his current mood and is fancied to maintain his unbeaten record at this venue. Unnoticed chased the selection home last time and should be thereabouts once again on these revised terms.

Bounty Pursuit - Southwell 16:10

Bounty Pursuit showed improved form to get off the mark on his most recent outing at Wolverhampton eight days ago and appeared to have more in hand than the official winning margin would suggest. He remains open to more improvement after just three starts for this yard and, while the quick turnaround is an obvious concern, Bounty Pursuit should prove extremely difficult to beat if arriving in the same form and can defy a 6 lb penalty with a defeat of Kyllach Me.

Top Tug - Taunton 16:20

Top Tug produced the best effort of his career over hurdles to date when second at Catterick last month, holding every chance as the field turned into the straight and simply unlucky to bump into a useful prospect on the day. He was a useful sort himself on the Flat and, with the possibility of more to come after just three starts in this sphere, Top Tug looks potentially very well-treated on handicap debut and shades the vote from the in-form Bertimont.
