Timeform pick out three bets from Lingfield Park and Musselburgh on Wednesday...


"He wasn't given at all a hard time on that occasion, but plugged on to finish a solid three and a half length third..."

Aimez La Vie - Lingfield Park 14:10

Aimez La Vie fared better than the bare result when a three and three quarter lengths fourth of 14 on her racecourse debut at Doncaster last month, travelling well when stumbling with two furlongs to run and doing well in the circumstances to recover and finish as close as she did. Indeed, she could be seen finishing to good effect under a hands-and-heels ride in the final furlong and - 7 lb clear of those with previous experience on Timeform ratings - Aimez La Vie should prove capable of better with that initial experience under her belt and can open her account at the second time of asking.


Olivia Fallow - Musselburgh 15:00

Olivia Fallow shaped as if still in good form when a four and a half lengths eighth of 15 on her most recent outing at Doncaster, making smooth headway as the field entered the final two furlongs and likely to have finished closer but for suffering interference in the closing stages. She was also forced to recover after a sluggish exit from the stalls on that occasion and - likely to have been involved in the shake up had things panned out better - Olivia Fallow is fancied to capitalise on this drop in class and can see off the attentions of recent Beverly winner Mappin Time.


Anonymous John - Lingfield Park 15:10

Anonymous John has been below his best since scoring at Southwell on New Year's Day, but there were more encouraging signs to be taken from his most recent outing at Windsor and he certainly showed enough to suggest he is on the way back. He wasn't given at all a hard time on that occasion, but plugged on to finish a solid three and a half length third. This represents a far weaker race than he has been contesting of late and - with 9 lb in hand on Timeform ratings - Anonymous John is expected to prove too strong for Monday's Brighton winner Wahaab and can resume winning ways.
