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

"...whilst winless this time around he has essentially run with credit at much higher levels on each of his 4 starts."

Timeform on Imphal

Imphal - Kempton 18:15

Imphal made rapid strides forward in staying handicaps last term, and whilst winless this time around he has essentially run with credit at much higher levels on each of his 4 starts. Returned to an artificial surface, he is narrowly selected to come out on top. Gravity Wave is the biggest threat after scoring at Wolverhampton last time, whilst Gavlar is another consider.

Extra Elusive - Kempton 19:15

Extra Elusive may have lost his unbeaten record when runner-up at Ascot last month, yet his effort still contained a good deal of promise, encouraging that he was able to find extra at the end having done plenty wrong early on. He's only been raised 2 lb for that effort, and remains with a good deal of potential. He is fancied to come out on top ahead of Rapier, who's up in trip, and Bartholomeu Dias.

Ortiz - Kempton 20:15

Ortiz comprehensively stepped up on her previous form when a fine second behind a pattern-bound winner in the Sandringham handicap at Royal Ascot in June, impressing with her turn of foot having travelled well. On the back of just 5 starts she likely has more in the offing and can come out on top. Perfection and Beauty Filly can give her most to think about.
