Timeform on Tombola

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

Checkpoint Charlie - Greyville R3, 12:05 GMT

Checkpoint Charlie is capable of some strong form for the grade when on a going day, something he showed when winning here over two furlongs shorter last October, and he's fancied to go close on today's terms. Kingston Boy and Peter Piper head the dangers.

Tombola - Greyville R4, 12:40 GMT

Tombola has been holding her form well in six completed starts since opening her account last July, and having slipped to what looks a workable mark, she's fancied to return to winning ways.

Sheza Rockstar - Greyville R5, 13:20 GMT

Sheza Rockstar has been knocking on the door for quite some time now, finishing fourth here two weeks ago, and dropped 1 lb, she's fancied to take this at the expense of Bequia.
