Timeform UK SmartPlays: Wednesday 30 January

Runners jump a hurdle
There's Jumps action at Leicester on Wednesday afternoon

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

"...if he is able to replicate that form, he will take some stopping on this afternoon's terms."

Timeform on Mister Chow

Mister Chow - Leicester 14:10

The entry of Mister Chow into a claiming hurdle is a rather tentative one considering the form he showed when we last saw him last March, but he looked borderline useful when winning a juvenile event at Newbury that day, and if he is able to replicate that form, he will take some stopping on this afternoon's terms. Should Mister Chow fail to fire, Cliffside Park is perhaps the one that can take advantage.

Jaisalmer - Leicester 14:40

Jaisalmer went backward from his promising chasing bow to finish second at Fakenham in October when never landing a blow at Exeter in December, a run which has prompted a switch back to hurdles. The handicapper has given him a big chance now back over timber, too, and off what looks a very workable mark, he looks worth chancing in what's likely to be an open contest. The in-form Deebaj and Sleepy Haven are the biggest dangers.

Terry The Fish - Leicester 15:10

First-time blinkers seemed to do the trick for Terry The Fish last time, as he duly returned to form to finish second at Market Rasen a fortnight ago, pulling clear with the winner that day, and whilst much bigger tests of stamina are much more his forte, he has obvious claims if reproducing that effort off the same mark. Holbrook Park was below form slightly at Fakenham last month, but has claims if running up to his best.
