Timeform on Gemcutter

Timeform select the three best bets at Scottsville on Wednesday...

#1 Queen's Plain - Scottsville R7 (13:35 BST)

Queen's Plain shaped encouragingly when fourth on her recent reappearance at Greyville, keeping on well to be beaten a little over three lengths. That form is working out well (the third won her next start) and she looks to hold sound claims if building on that effort in what is a much weaker race. Green Ice and Clara are a couple of others to consider.

#13 Swagger Jagger - Scottsville R9 (14:50 BST)

Swagger Jagger was beaten only narrowly on his most recent start at Greyville and remains on a good mark, so he could be the way to go as he attempts to record a first success since September 2019. Candle Cove is one of only two other three-year-olds in the line-up and heads the list of dangers, along with Jonathan.

#9 Gemcutter - Scottsville R10 (15:25 BST)

Gemcutter has been in top form in two starts at the Vaal since returning from four months on the sidelines, winning easily on the first occasion and finding only too good last time. This represents a slight drop in grade and he remains one to bear in mind in his current rich vein of form. What A Seven and Alfonsa Spagoni also enter calculations in the finale.
