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

"...there could be even more to come yet, too..."

Timeform on Chantyman

#1 African Warrior - Scottsville R2 (11:45 GMT)

African Warrior made an encouraging start to his career when winning on debut at Greyville earlier this month, overcoming greenness to get up close home and, with improvement forthcoming now, he is fully expected to follow up. Pearl Of Asia also shaped with promise when second on debut and is feared most, while Master Jay can scrap it out for third.

#1 Chantyman - Scottsville R4 (12:55 GMT)

Chantyman arrives in tip-top form, winning three of his last five starts and finishing runner-up on the other two. The style of his latest win over a similar trip at Greyville suggests there could be even more to come yet, too, so there is no reason to oppose him in search of a hat-trick. Ishnana should be involved at the business end too, while Boeing City has place prospects as well.

#2 Tribal Fusion - Scottsville R7 (14:40 GMT)

Tribal Fusion has a good record at this track and shaped well when three quarters of a length second to Mr Roy over further here last time, leaving the impression he'd appreciate the drop back to this trip. He is expected to reverse that form now, with Fiorella another to consider provided she puts her best foot forward.
