There's National Hunt action at Wetherby on Wednesday

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

"...this is far easier and he could be a tough nut to crack if his ability translates to this code."

Timeform on Lord Yeats

Whin Park - Wetherby 12:45

Whin Park put in an improved performance to score on reappearance at Ludlow last month, before shaping as if still in form when falling at Chepstow last time out. He was beaten when he departed, finding his stamina stretched by the more testing conditions, but he still looks to be going the right way and is worth another chance now eased back down in trip.

Lord Yeats - Wetherby 13:15

An interesting race, in which Lord Yeats makes the most appeal. The five-year-old switches to hurdles having shown smart form on the Flat, most recently contesting the Doncaster Cup in September. He ran poorly that day, but this is far easier and he could be a tough nut to crack if his ability translates to this code. There are several dangers, however, including Smiths Cross, who can build on a promising debut at Ffos Las 17 days ago. The two French recruits, Charming Dream and Extra Mag, are also worth a look in the betting.

Lopes Dancer - Wetherby 13:50

A weak novices' hurdle, and those with form don't set a particularly daunting standard. Preference, therefore, is for Lopes Dancer, who was fairly useful on the Flat, scoring over 1m6f on her most recent start at Redcar at the beginning of the month. If able to translate that form over, he could prove difficult to beat. The Very Thing was third on his first start over timber at Fakenham last month and is respected, ahead of Imperial Acolyte.
