Timeform on Belle Strike

Timeform bring you the best bets from Sam Houston on Tuesday...

#6 Top Hat Charmer - Sam Houston R1 (17:05)

Top Hat Charmer ran well off a 146-day break to finish runner-up over shorter here last time and is taken to go one better this time around. Main danger Contendress was also second last time and now goes first-off-the-claim for Robertino Diodoro, while Quinn Ella can also grab a minor share.

#6 Belle Strike - Sam Houston R3 (17:59)

Belle Strike showed improved form when dropping into a maiden claimer for the first time on her latest start and now faces a slightly weaker field. She can get off the mark at the fourth time of asking, with Cecilia's a Gem and Curtseytothekitten rated the biggest dangers.

#5 Jessicas Arch - Sam Houston R4 (18:26)

A course-and-distance winner here on her most recent outing, Jessicas Arch is taken to go in again in what is a very similar contest on paper. At a bigger price, Stillwater R has bits and pieces of form that make him a contender, while Megans Lad is another to consider.
