Timeform pick out three bets from Chelmsford and Kempton on Wednesday.


Bracken Brae - Chelmsford 15:00

Bracken Brae proved better than ever when second over this C&D five weeks ago, sticking to her task well in the closing stages and simply finding the improved winner too good on the day. That form gives her the edge over Hazariban on Timeform ratings here and, with three wins and three placed efforts from her last six outings at this venue, Bracken Brae looks sure to be thereabouts and can regain the winning thread with a defeat of the recent Lingfield-winner Pinwood.

Buying Trouble - Chelmsford 15:30

Buying Trouble finished placed in each of her last three starts at listed level and produced the best effort of her career to date when second on her most recent outing at Newmarket in August. That may not have been the strongest race for the grade, but the form leaves her 3 lb clear of all bar Mise En Rose on Timeform ratings here and Buying Trouble is fancied to gain the win her consistency deserves if returning from five months off the track in peak condition.

Little Miss Daisy - Kempton 18:20

Little Miss Daisy looked an unlucky loser when second on her most recent outing at Chelmsford, forced to deliver her challenge from further back than ideal and ultimately doing extremely well to finish as close as she did. She certainly showed enough to suggest she is up to winning a race of this nature and can make amends with the possibility of more to come here, especially given a strong gallop to run at. Juan Horsepower is consistent and looks the main danger.
