Timeform on Mainsail Atlantic

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Yarmouth on Tuesday...

Azets - Yarmouth 14:35

Although Azets proved to be a let-down when sixth on handicap debut at Lingfield last time out, though the way the race developed perhaps didn't suit on the day. He had really impressed at Kempton prior to that, however, looking well ahead of his mark when finishing third, and it's worth remembering he was a 300,000 guineas purchase as a yearling. As such, he looks well worth another chance to confirm that promise, and can get off the mark at the expense of Agent Basterfield, who was nailed close home by Hypnos on the all-weather, but has fewer miles on the clock than that rival and is next best ahead of Love So Deep.

Mainsail Atlantic - Yarmouth 15:05

An interesting contest, with plenty to recommend all five runners, but ready preference is for Mainsail Atlantic, who steadily progressed last year, and put to bed any queries about his bad attitude when opening his account on his most recent start at Lingfield in December - form which has been boosted by the runner-up since. As such, there's definitely room for movement off this afternoon's BHA mark of 82. Hamlul is a potential four-year-old improver for Sir Michael Stoute and is respected, while Nonios is fit and in form from the AW.

King of Comedy - Yarmouth 15:35

This race could prove to be a particularly informative one considering that plenty of the newcomers catch the eye, but they may all find it difficult to bridge the gap to King of Comedy, who proved he was no laughing matter when showing useful form in two starts as a two-year-old last season. With the step up in trip likely to be in his favour, he gets the vote to pick up a second career success with more improvement likely. Land of Legends might be the pick of Saeed bin Suroor's 3 debutants, while Edaraat is another newcomer to take the eye on paper.
