Timeform on Theclockisticking

Timeform pick out their best back, lay, and smart stat bets on Tuesday...

Giving Back - 16:00 Lingfield

A determined winner of her penultimate outing at Salisbury, Giving Back improved again to follow up from 4 lb higher at Chepstow last week, travelling smoothly and always in control once produced to lead over three furlongs out, winning by half a length with a bit in hand. The quick turnaround here is a slight concern, but she looks potentially well treated under a 5 lb penalty if arriving in top form, with the prospect of even more to come given her current rate of progression, and it will be disappointing if she isn't thereabouts in her hat-trick bid, representing the Alan King yard that has been amongst the winners under both codes of late (nine winners from last 32 runners).

Incognito - 17:25 Chelmsford

Incognito sets the standard in this minor event for two-year-old fillies, but the balance of her form identifies her as one to take on. Indeed, the fact that she is seven starts into her career and without a win to her name speaks volumes about her limitations, and her latest effort at Doncaster was just about the worst of the lot, flattening out at the finish to be beaten over five lengths. The application of first-time cheekpieces might help her to get back on track, but it is hardly a confident shout, and she is well worth trying to keep out of the frame with a place lay, with Belle Anglaise, Taamer and Cranberry just three of several interesting sorts running for us in that scenario.

Smart Stat
Theclockisticking - 15:50 Warwick

£12.41 - Stuart Edmunds' profit to a £1 level stake with only one runner on the card (chases)

Stuart Edmunds has proved profitable to follow when sending only one runner to a meeting in recent seasons, and it could be worth taking a chance on his sole representative at Warwick this afternoon, with Theclockisticking looking to hold sound claims in the first-time headgear. Admittedly, he was well beaten when last seen at Warwick in June, but this represents a significant drop in grade, and, 2 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings, this lightly-raced chaser certainly appeals as being on a workable mark at present, with the way he shaped on his penultimate outing still fresh in the memory (finished with running left after a bad blunder mid-race).
