Timeform pick out three bets from Southwell and Wetherby on Tuesday...
"He gave the impression he would relish a return to this longer trip on that occasion..."
Teescomponents Max - Southwell 17:25
Teescomponents Max remains relatively unexposed after just nine career starts under rules and he returned from ten months off the track with a career-best effort on his chasing debut at Sedgefield last time. He shaped with plenty of promise on that occasion, travelling well into contention and only weakening when the lack of a recent run began to tell in the closing stages. That form already gives his rivals 2 lb to find on Timeform ratings and - entitled to improve with that outing under his belt - Teescomponents Max can get off the mark with a defeat of the unpredictable Marky Bob here.
Udontdodou - Wetherby 18:45
Udontdodou looked potentially smart when recording a decisive victory at Windsor eight days ago, pulling nicely clear of some similarly unexposed rivals and looking to have more in hand than the winning margin suggests. Indeed, he didn't appear to have too hard a race that day and, with a more significant rise in the weights sure to be imminent, connections have understandably taken the decision to turn him out again quickly under a 6 lb penalty. A reproduction of that form would leave Udontdodou with some 10 lb in hand on Timeform ratings and he can get the better of Alkhor in his hat-trick bid here.
Winterval - Wetherby 19:50
Winterval was a comfortable winner over this trip at Nottingham in July and returned from over ten months off the track with a fairly useful effort on debut for the Roger Varian yard at the same venue recently. He gave the impression he would relish a return to this longer trip on that occasion, unsuited by the emphasis on speed and unable to quite reel in the better-placed winner. The application of cheekpieces should eke out a bit more improvement and, with the potential to rate much higher than a BHA mark of 82, Winterval can see off the attentions of the consistent Prendergast Hill here.
