Timeform UK SmartPlays: Tuesday October 18

There is racing from Yarmouth on Tuesday
There is racing from Yarmouth on Tuesday

Timeform pick out bets from three different UK venues on Tuesday.


Wizards Bridge - 15:10 Exeter

Wizards Bridge was going well at Fontwell on the 30th of September when the race was abandoned part-way through for safety reasons and, with this mark still looking lenient based on his form from this time last season (finished second from 11 lb higher in the weights), his belated return is expected to be a winning one here. Jeremy Scott is in good form at present and his Miss Serious - still unexposed over fences after just three starts in this sphere - looks to be a big danger.

Musaanada - 17:20 Yarmouth

The impeccably bred Musaanada did well to get off the mark at the first time of asking at Kempton last month after showing signs of greenness at the beginning and end of the race, and she is open to above-average improvement here as she makes her handicap debut here. Percy's Romance just about sets the standard on form based on her second to Baydar at Newmarket in June, but she is now an eight-race maiden and Mussaanada looks the better option for win purposes.

Smiley Bagel - 18:40 Kempton Park

Smiley Bagel didn't seem to be suited by the drop back to 10 furlongs at Brighton on his return from an absence last time, being outpaced early in the straight before making up good ground late on, and the step up to this trip looks to be a big positive today. He is already proven at this track (finished third here on his first three-year-old start in April) and, still lightly raced, he looks the type to take off now tackling some fairly exposed opponents here. Aurora Grey was poor at Chelmsford last time but is bred to be suited by this trip and could be Smiley Bagel's biggest challenger.
