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

"Back down in grade, she can regain the winning thread."

Timeform on Artilena

#1 Artilena - Woodbine R2, 00:16 BST

Impressive maiden winner Artilena was pitched in deep in Grade 1 company when well beaten last time, but the fact she only went off at odds of 5/1 suggests that plenty is thought of her. Back down in grade, she can regain the winning thread.

#7 Dancing Quietly - Woodbine R3, 00:46 BST

Dancing Quietly is easily forgiven his last effort when racing too close to a fast pace. He is much better judged on his previous runner-up finish, a repeat of which gives him strong claims in this weaker contest.

#7 Hampstead Heath - Woodbine R4, 01:16 BST

Hampstead Heath showed enough last time to suggest he is coming back into form, and a small drop in class here will help his cause too. Red At Last and Bold Animaux look the main dangers.
