Timeform pick out their three best bets from Pontefract on Tuesday...

"...she looks worth backing to gain that all-important black type..."

Timeform on Shenanigans

LIFE FOR RENT - Pontefract 14:30

LIFE FOR RENT shaped as though his turn may again be near when fourth at Haydock last month and the handicapper has taken a huge chance by dropping him a further 3 lb on the back of that, now 1 lb lower than when recording his latest win at Ripon in September. He looks sure to take plenty of beating for the in-form Tim Easterby yard (three winners from last six runner), with Zumurud and Palmer likely to emerge as the chief threats.

SHENANIGANS - Pontefract 15:00

SHENANIGANS won two of her six starts in handicaps in 2017 and has so far taken the step into listed/minor pattern company in her stride this season, finishing placed in all three outings including when a close-up third in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom last time. That form leaves her 4 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here and she looks worth backing to gain that all-important black type, with Promising Run best of the rest.

HIGHLY SPRUNG - Pontefract 15:30

HIGHLY SPRUNG and Mr Orange both arrive on the back of clear-cut wins and could be the pair to focus on, with preference for the former in his quest for a C&D hat-trick. He has a 6 lb penalty for his latest win to contend with here, but remains potentially well treated judged on the pick of his efforts (won off as high as 83 as a three-year-old) and looks sure to go well with champion jockey Silvestre de Sousa again in the saddle.
