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


Un Prophete - Southwell 13:30

Un Prophete showed improved form when getting off the mark on just his second start over fences at Ludlow on Wednesday, closing when left in front three-out and keeping on well thereafter to run out a 16-length winner. He was arguably suited by how the race developed on the day, but remains open to more improvement in this sphere and represents a trainer that has done well with similar types. The quick turnaround is an obvious concern here, but Un Prophete looks potentially very well-treated under a 7 lb penalty and is expected to follow up with a defeat of Bally Lagan if arriving in the same form.

Enfolding - Wolverhampton 16:20

Enfolding shaped better than the bare result when second on his most recent outing at Lingfield five week ago, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal in a steadily-run race and ultimately doing extremely well to get within two lengths of the better-placed winner. This longer trip is expected to see him in an even better light on that evidence and - 3 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings - Enfolding appears to hold sound claims from what looks a lenient mark on handicap debut and can see off the attentions of Poetic Force to open his account at the fourth time of asking.

Absolute Blast - Wolverhampton 16:50

Absolute Blast appeared to have plenty in hand when running out a two-length winner of her penultimate outing at this venue and confirmed the promise of that effort when following up from 12 lb higher in the weights at Kempton 13 days ago. That form gives her the edge over Summer Icon on Timeform ratings here and, while this represents by far the toughest task of her career in Britain to date, Absolute Blast is fancied to take the step up in class in her stride and can establish herself as a useful prospect. Summer Icon was a comfortable of her most recent outing at Lingfield and looks the main danger.
