Timeform pick out their three best bets from Tuesday's racing action...

"He's clearly in good heart at the moment, and should have too much for a field where solid form over timber is at a premium."

Timeform on The Detainee

The Detainee - Wincanton 14:20

The Detainee showed definite promise in his two starts over hurdles last autumn, and has since resumed his progress by winning a handicap on the level at Windsor last month. He's clearly in good heart at the moment, and should have too much for a field where solid form over timber is at a premium. Compatriot has been underwhelming of late on the all-weather but is respected on hurdling debut for the Olly Murphy yard, whilst Let's Sway is interesting in receipt of weight all round.

Border Breaker - 16:30 Sedgefield

Border Breaker was an eye-catching fifth on his first start for Sam England at Huntingdon last month, a run which suggested that he was returning to form. He's on a lowly mark considering some of his form of old, and he looks to be the solution in a very modest affair. General Mahler was a solid second at Hexham last time and heads the dangers, ahead of Oscar O'scar.

Arthur's Reuben - 19:00 Southwell

Arthur's Reuben seems to be going the right way, which is more than most of the field can offer, running well last time from 1 lb out of the weights despite not being seen to best effect. Considering that plenty of these have significant questions to answer, he is by far the most solid option and makes strong appeal. News For Pascal ran well on the back of a long absence at Newcastle last time and is feared provided that hasn't taken it out of him, whilst Haasab isn't without a chance now switched to handicaps.
