"...she is still fairly treated despite a further 6lb hike..."

Timeform on Well Funded

Well Funded - 13:55 Nottingham

The progressive Well Funded acts exceptionally well with cut in the ground so will relish the testing conditions at Nottingham. She struck with ease at Carlisle and then improved further to win a better race at Chester from a 6lb higher mark. She is still fairly treated despite a further 6lb hike and should prove too good for older, largely-exposed rivals.

Midnight Magic - 16:20 Wincanton

Midnight Magic has been in good heart of late and has a clear chance on ratings but he is a longstanding maiden and not one to trust, so is worth leaving alone. He's had plenty of chances before. The one who makes most appeal is Butlergrove King. He remains thrown in on his old form and may have benefited from a short break after putting in a disappointing effort last time.

Smart Stat
Hong Kong Harry - 13:25 Nottingham

£49.08 - Richard Fahey's profit to a £1 level stake with debutants

Richard Fahey's healthy level-stake profit with debutants shows he can clearly get one ready first time, and Hong Kong Harry, his representative in the opener at Nottingham, makes some appeal on paper. He is a half-brother to three winners and obviously one to take seriously on debut.
