Timeform pick out three bets from Redcar on Tuesday...


Silver Gleam - 14:30 Redcar

Silver Gleam was handed a stiff-looking opening handicap mark when trained by Tim Easterby, and was rightfully dropped 7 lb in the weights after her first start for this yard last year at Newcastle. Now down to a more workable mark, she put in a more encouraging effort on her reappearance at Beverley earlier this month, making late headway under a patient ride over a mile and a half. Based on that, she should be suited by going over further here, and she gets the vote. Dirty Randy should also get this far and is a danger, having shown improved form at Southwell on his handicap debut, while Curtsy would have a strong chance if building on her Lingfield fourth on her penultimate start.

Curzon Line - 15:00 Redcar

Curzon Line improved on the all-weather over the winter, placing twice off marks in the mid-70s, but he also has form on turf from last season to his name (won at over a mile at Ripon in May last year) and is potentially on a lenient mark if putting it all together on this surface. He wouldn't have been suited by the drop back to six furlongs at Wolverhampton last time, and is worth chancing now upped in trip off a short break. Geordie George's rider didn't seem happy with him at Newcastle a week ago (looking down before halfway), and he could be a threat if building on the promise of his yard debut at Southwell prior to that.

Kaeso - 16:30 Redcar

Kaeso quickened up well once in the clear last time at Thirsk to make his first start in a handicap a winning one, and he could easily have more to offer here on the back of a 30-day break. That form was just modest, but the second Arnold has won since, and a 6 lb rise in the weights for Kaeso may not be enough to stop him following up. Judy Woods (sixth) was one of a few in that race to be left poorly placed and could get closer to the selection today.
