Timeform on Al Tarmaah

Timeform pick out the three best bets at Wetherby on Sunday.

Pinball Wizard - 14:40 Wetherby

Pinball Wizard didn't make much of an impact on his handicap debut at Kempton last month but he wasn't seen to best effect in a race that was run at an ordinary gallop and placed the emphasis on speed. The handicapper has taken a chance dropping him 2 lb and he looks well treated based on what he showed at Wolverhampton on his second start.

Al Tarmaah - 15:40 Wetherby

Al Tarmaah is a half-brother to three winners, including the very smart Washington DC, and he cost 350,000 guineas as a yearling so ought to prove much better than this opening handicap mark of 65. Al Tarmaah didn't show a lot on his first two starts but got off the mark at the third attempt in a six-furlong novice at Redcar and looks the type to progress further.

Many A Star - 16:10 Wetherby

Many A Star did well last season and won handicaps at Doncaster and Yarmouth. He was a bit too keen for his own good when last seen in a six-furlong handicap at Newcastle in October and should be well suited by this slight drop in trip and extra emphasis on speed. The booking of Hollie Doyle is a positive on Many A Star's first start since joining Brian Meehan.
