Timeform pick out three bets from Scotsville on Wednesday.


Just One More - Scotsville 11:50

Just One More ran a race full of promise on her debut here over course and distance when a respectable length and a half third to Mind Your Business earlier this month. Weak in the market that day and drifting from 8/1 to 30/1 by the time the stalls opened, the daughter of Brave Tin Soldier wasn't beaten far at all and seems sure to improve hand over first for her first experience of a racecourse, and with the better-bred newcomers weak in the early markets, Just One More looks to have an outstanding chance.

Texas Sky - Scotsville 13:00

Texas Sky showed the benefits of his debut here over six furlongs when stepped up to a mile to finish second after running out of steam close home to be beaten three and a half lengths by the decent Ancestry. The winner finished a nose second in the Golden Horseshoe on Durban July Day to frank the form considerably, and if Texas Sky can repeat his last effort at a more suitable seven furlongs, he should prove hard to beat this afternoon.

Champenois - Scotsville 13:35

Champenois has finished second in both her races so far and there is an argument that she didn't improve as much as expected last time when a length and a half behind Flichity By Farr at Greyville over the turf mile. In reality the winner seems well above average, and with the first two pulling clear of the rest of the field the daughter of Visionaire out of a Qui Danzig mare may not even need to do much more to take this maiden. Dennis Drier is well known for his horses improving race on race, and if that is the case then Champenois looks one of the better bets today on an interesting card.
