Timeform pick out three bets from Carlisle and Salisbury on Wednesday...


Running Cloud - 15:10 Salisbury

Eve Johnson Houghton isn't renowned for having first-time-out two-year-old winners, though she has had two already this season. One of those was Running Cloud, who made a good impression when winning at Wolverhampton by four lengths earlier this month. He looked above-average as he forged clear in the closing stages and, open to progress now, he looks well up to defying a penalty. Onefootinparadise is also open to improvement and she looks very dangerous indeed with a feather weight to carry.

Great Sound - 15:40 Salisbury

There are several unexposed types on show here, but Great Sound really caught the eye when making a winning start at Chepstow three weeks ago, and he is open to significant improvement now. He ran to a high level for a newcomer as it was, but that he could do it while taking most of the race to push through his greenness is the tell-tale sign of a horse who's probably not going to be contesting handicaps for much longer, so he is strongly fancied to record another victory before stepping up in class. The form of Here And Now's win at Chester last time looks very strong, and he looks the biggest danger.

Bletchley - 16:00 Carlisle

Bletchley showed enough when winning a minor event at Leicester on her return to suggest she retains all of her ability and is very much one to consider back up in grade. She hasn't grown much since last year, but she won with a bit in hand, and Ralph Beckett has shown on numerous occasions he is a dab hand with such fillies. This doesn't look the deepest of listed races and it will be disappointing if she doesn't go close. Asidious Alexander and Elusive Beauty are feared most dropping in grade.
