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

"She is a well-related filly who should prove hard to beat in this contest..."

Timeform on Golden Circle

Golden Circle - 13:55 Ripon

Golden Circle made a very promising start to her career when beaten half a length in second at Thirsk earlier this month, strong in the betting and knowing what was required, but still leaving the impression she would come on for the experience. She is a well-related filly who should prove hard to beat in this contest. Sophia Maria and Heartstring have shown promise and could be the pair to fill the minor placings.

Clenymistra - 14:30 Ripon

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type, and Clenymistra sets a clear standard in this line-up, so ought to be able to record her first win of the season. She wasn't disgraced over a mile and a half at Thirsk last week, but the drop back to this distance in this easier grade should suit, and she should prove hard to beat. Jenoow looks the obvious danger after opening her account last time whilst Johni Boxit also enters calculations.

Urban Spirit - 17:05 Ripon

Urban Spirit isn't long with this yard, and has run well to finish second over similar trips the last twice. He is up to winning races from this mark and, though he is an exposed, long-standing maiden, he is worth chancing in this field to belatedly open his account. Mount Cleshar and Up Ten Down Two are other key players.
