Timeform UK SmartPlays: Wednesday December 28

Racing returns to Leicester on Wednesday
Racing returns to Leicester on Wednesday

Timeform pick out three bets on Wednesday.


Fattsota - Catterick 11.55
Allfredandnobell caught the eye when running on for a never-nearer third here last month at 50/1, however he was possibly flattered by his proximity to the winner that day. However, there seemed little fluke about FATTSOTA's second to Sumkindofking at Southwell on his hurdling debut and he gets the nod. Fattsota was smart on the Flat at his best and, having showed aptitude for the job, is entitled to progress.

Paddy the Deejay - Leicester 12.55

Dual point winner PADDY THE DEEJAY hasn't won over fences yet but he again shaped much better than the result at Towcester this month, and, having appeared to fail due to lack of stamina there, is one to be interested in back at 2m. Herons Heir, a member of Timeform's Fifty to Follow for the season, has unfinished business over fences, and is feared most.

Swiss Cross - Lingfield 15.30
Hyland Heather is capable of better, having shaped as if needing the run when fourth at the track 23 days ago, however preference is for SWISS CROSS. Phil McEntee's nine-year-old shows no signs of slowing down, having completed a hat-trick of Lingfield wins in October and November. He ran creditably when sixth over five furlongs at Dundalk last time but should relish the return to six furlongs here.

Timeform UK SmartPlays:

Win back Fattsota in the Catterick 11.55
Win back Paddy the Deejay in the Leicester 12.55
Win back Swiss Cross in the Lingfield 15.30
