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

"...anything close to that effort would see him make a bold bid to shed his maiden tag."

Timeform on Solsbury Hill

Yaas - Greyville R1, 11:05 GMT

Yaas returned to winning ways over C&D last month, and, raised just 2 lb for that, she looks to have leading claims of following up in this race. To Woo was below form at Scottsville last time but would have claims if able to bounce back here, while Ginger Biscuit is a tasty proposition for place purposes.

Solsbury Hill - Greyville R2, 11:40 GMT

Solsbury Hill was below par at Scottsville last time out, but he return to the scene of his standout performance in his career to date - which came over C&D last September - and anything close to that effort would see him make a bold bid to shed his maiden tag. He can fight it out with Combat Captain, and Rumbleinthejungle, who are the next best.

Hey Jude - Greyville R3, 12:20 GMT

Hey Jude is unlucky to still be a maiden, and has been running with plenty of credit of late, placing in each of his last five starts, which all came at this track. The form he has been showing is by far and away the strongest on offer in this, and as such, it is difficult to say "nah nah nah nah" to him as a betting proposition. He can get off the mark at the 13th time of asking at the expense of Abbey, who has placed in each of her two starts to date, but would need to find more to topple the selection.
