Timeform pick out three bets from Scottsville on Wednesday.


Diamonds Forever - Scottsville 13:40

Diamonds Forever looks to have the best form here by some margin after finishing second in her last two starts for Paul Gadsby, at Greyville on the polytrack and here over C&D last time out when beaten less than a quarter of a length by Tweed Valley in a tight finish. The fourth has won since while the winner sixth and seventh all placed next time out, giving the form a solid look, and making Diamonds Forever hard to go against today.

Got Your Back - Scottsville 14:15

Got Your Back is easily the highest rated horse in this maiden field but is yet to win a race after three starts, though she is improving race on race. An educational debut ninth was followed by a fourth at Greyville, and more recently a length and three quarters third here over C&D which was clearly her best effort yet. Even a repeat of that may well be enough in this line up, but Got Your Back still has more to offer and can come home in front this afternoon.

Rock My Soul - Scotsville 15:25

Rock My Soul represents the Joey Ramsden stable who are back in winning form after a bit of a quiet patch. A son of Twice Over who won the Champion Stakes twice for trainer Henry Cecil, he makes his handicap debut here off a rating of 81 following a good third to Roy Had Enough at Greyville last month and with more to offer, Rock My Soul can win his second race on his eighth start today, reverting to this seven furlong trip that seems ideal.
