There's National Hunt action at Sedgefield on Tuesday

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

"This field is a small one, though, and as the main pace angle, he could be able to take control of this race from the front."

Timeform on Kilfinichen Bay

Glimpse of Gold - Sedgefield 13:20

This handicap doesn't look as if it will take too much winning, so ready preference is for Glimpse of Gold, who appeals as by far the most solid option in the field. He shaped encouragingly when third on his return from 6 months at Uttoxeter at the beginning of the month; close up to the lead two out before just flattening out as if he needed the run. He's slipped plenty in the weights and it would be disappointing shouldn't he make a bold bid to take this. Millie The Minx and The Herds Garden are others to consider.

Kilfinichen Bay - Sedgefield 13:50

Kilfinichen Bay isn't the most consistent nor the most talented runner in training, but he is more than capable on his day, and he looked as if he was probably still in form when third at Wetherby last time; simply not up to dominating better-treated rivals. This field is a small one, though, and as the main pace angle, he could be able to take control of this race from the front. Captain Mowbray put in a better effort at Wetherby last time and is the biggest threat to the selection.

Dr Dunraven - Sedgefield 14:50

Dr Dunraven got his head back in front at Plumpton last week on his first outing for the Peter Bowen team; travelling easily and asserting between the last two flights without coming under maximum pressure. He's had a busy year, but the fact he is in good heart is a big bonus, and he is likely to go close under a 7 lb penalty. Fellow last time out winner Tayzar is another to consider ahead of Bulkov, who has developed into something of a course specialist here over hurdles last season.
