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

"He can strike at the first time of asking for his new handler..."

Timeform on Happy Farm

#7 Preternatural - Aqueduct R2 (19:00 BST)

Preternatural is still low mileage having made just 3 starts and goes first-off-the-claim for Rudy Rodriguez in this maiden claimer. A repeat of his third-place finish last time would probably suffice in this company.

#6 Happy Farm - Aqueduct R5 (20:36 BST)

Another going first-off-the-claim is Happy Farm, who has been acquired by top trainer Jason Servis. He can strike at the first time of asking for his new handler, with Malibu Action and Missle Bomb rated the main dangers.

#4 Pauseforthecause - Aqueduct R8 (22:15 BST)

Placed on his last 3 outings, Pauseforthecause is taken to gain reward for his consistency and come out on top. Big Birthday is another consistent sort and looks the biggest threat, while Honor Way can claim third.
