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


Midnight Jade - Leicester 13:50

Midnight Jade was a determined winner of her penultimate outing at Southwell and improved again to follow up from 4 lb higher in the weights at this venue last time. She appeared to have matters in hand from some way out on that occasion, travelling strongly towards the head of affairs throughout and finding plenty to hold the sustained challenge of the runner-up. She has a further 8 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but remains open to more improvement as a chaser and can complete the hat-trick with a defeat of the thriving Fly Home Harry.

La Vaticane - Leicester 14:20

La Vaticane defied a huge weight when successful on her most recent outing at Doncaster, running down the early pacesetter under a hands-and-heels ride close home and producing the best effort of her career to date in the process. That form leaves her 6 lb clear of Desert Queen on Timeform ratings and, although she has displayed signs of temperament in the past, La Vaticane should prove extremely difficult to beat if arriving here in the same mood as last time and can put her experience to good use in what looks a competitive renewal of this listed prize.

Meadway - Southwell 15:10

Meadway lost his unbeaten record on fibresand when a half-length second over this C&D three weeks ago, but he still ran a cracker in defeat and appears to hold sound claims of reversing the placings with winner Razin' Hell on these revised terms. Indeed, that form gives him the edge over all bar Encore d'Or on Timeform ratings here and, with doubts about that rivals ability to act on fibresand, Meadway is fancied to regain the winning thread and can take his record over this C&D to four wins from five starts for Connor Beasley and Bryan Smart.
