Timeform pick out their three best bets for the action from Wolverhampton, Taunton and Wetherby on Tuesday...

"This seven furlong trip is his optimum and the booking of Martin Harley is a big positive."

Eastern Dragon - Wolverhampton 13:40

Eastern Dragon makes his debut for Seamus Durack, having dropped 19 lb down the weights since his last win in October 2014. This seven furlong trip is his optimum and the booking of Martin Harley is a big positive. Fellow course winners Caledonia Laird and Hawk Moth look the biggest threats.

Qualando - Taunton 16:10

Fred Winter winner Qualando returns from an 80-day break with his stable in much better form than when he was well beaten at Aintree in December. A drop in both trip and the weights will suit and a much better run is anticipated. Recent Wetherby winner Cobra de Mai makes his handicap debut and, receiving plenty of weight, looks the chief danger.

Zephyros Bleu - Wetherby 16:25

Harry Whittington's Zephyros Bleu can make the long journey from Lambourn to Wetherby worthwhile. Zephyros Bleu improved when a closing second to Pilgrims Bay on his handicap debut at Wincanton last month, and can defy a 6 lb rise in the weights. Shaiyzar is consistent, though a very infrequent winner (one win from thirty starts) and Palm Grey rates more of a threat now dropped in grade.
