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

"...considering the heart he's in at the moment, he's fancied to build on that last time out success by winning again."

Timeform on Ronnie Rocket

Ronnie Rocket - Greyville R3, 12:05 GMT

Ronnie Rocket returned to winning ways when scoring over this trip at Scottsville last month, and considering the heart he's in at the moment, he's fancied to build on that last time out success by winning again. Savea and Leslie Shadowliner head the dangers in what could prove to be an open heat.

Rumbleinthejungle - Greyville R4, 12:40

Rumbleinthejungle was unable to justify favouritism when second over a furlong further here last time out, but he's been running well of late, hitting the frame in three of his last four starts, all at this course, and the drop back in trip will be in his favour. Stealth Admiral was below par at Scottsville three weeks ago but would have claims if returning to form here.

Merlin From Berlin - Greyville R5, 13:20 GMT

Merlin From Berlin was out of his depth in a higher grade at Scottsville last time out, but he had been running well prior to that, and sets a clear standard now dropped back in grade by his connections. Rio De La Plata is a big threat if able to bounce back from a poor run last time out, while Haddington is another to consider.
