Timeform UK SmartPlays: Tuesday July 19
Timeform pick out three bets from Ffos Las, Musselburgh and Nottingham on Tuesday...
"Novinophobia is fancied to confirm the promise of his most recent outing and regain the winning thread with a defeat of Catterick winner Deben..."
Maths Prize - Ffos Las 14:00
Maths Prize produced a fairly useful level of form when second on his racecourse debut at Sandown, staying on well under a hands-and-heels ride and giving the impression he would improve with that initial experience under his belt. That effort gives the edge over Prerogative on Timeform ratings here and, with trainer Roger Charlton in such fine form at present, Maths Prize is taken to uphold the placings with Sandown-fourth Naval Warfare and open his account at the second time of asking.
Novinophobia - Musselburgh 16:15
Novinophobia returned to something like his best form when second at Catterick 13 days ago, responding generously to pressure in the closing stages and simply unlucky to bump into one too good on the day. He is now on a mark just 1 lb higher than when successful over this C&D in August and - 2 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings - Novinophobia is fancied to confirm the promise of his most recent outing and regain the winning thread with a defeat of Catterick winner Deben.
Show Palace - Nottingham 18:40
Show Palace returned to winning ways with a career-best effort at Haydock last month and - appearing to win with more in hand than the official winning margin suggests - the handicapper may have underestimated him with just a 4 lb hike in the weights. He boasts a fine strike rate in handicaps with five wins from eight starts and, although Oriental Relation is feared off what
looks a fair mark, Show Palace is expected to prove strong for some relatively exposed rivals here.
