Timeform pick out their three best bets from Greyville on Wednesday...

"...a repeat of her run to finish third here in May would give her leading claims."

Timeform on Wishful Words

Wishful Words, Greyville R1, 12:10 BST

An open race, in which Wishful Words is chanced to shed her maiden tag. Her three most recent starts haven't been great, but a repeat of her run to finish third here in May would give her leading claims. Fives Wild heads the dangers though he would need to shrug off a below-par effort last time, while King Of Samash also needs a closer look.

Blackburn Roc, Greyville R2, 12:50 BST

Blackburn Roc's effort to finish second at Scottsville last time was a big step forward on what he had shown in two starts previously, and a repeat of that run would be enough for him to take this maiden. Spume also hit the frame last time and can get the better of the remainder, while Master George has place claims, also.

Just Dixit, Greyville R3, 13:25 BST

Just Dixit has shown enough in his two starts to date to suggest that a race of this nature is within his capabilities, and with some more improvement a possibility, he's taken to get off the mark at the third attempt. Linnger Longer has had ten starts now and she sets a solid if unremarkable standard, while Farland also requires respect.
