Timeform pick out their three best bets from Wetherby on Thursday…
“…his hat-trick claims look obvious under a penalty.”
Timeform on Briac
Briac is suddenly thriving, having completed a double at Sedgefield just two days ago, when jumping the last clear and winning easily. He had a host of entries for this week, so it is no surprise to see him quickly turned back out, and his hat-trick claims look obvious under a penalty. Rocku Finish should have every chance now dropped in trip and is respected, whilst Magic Dragon is another to consider.
Lough Salt split a pair of promising chasing debutants when finishing second over C&D at the beginning of the month, almost pulling off the perfect waiting-and-pouncing ride, but ultimately bumping into one who could prove well-handicapped. That form will likely prove to be strong, and he’s worth chancing to go one better in a contest where the majority of his opposition look averagely handicapped. Follow The Swallow is in good form at the moment, and is the obvious danger to the selection.
Midnight Queen is in good form at the moment, scoring at Fakenham two starts ago, before shaping well when third in a better race at Catterick last time. This contest looks an easier assignment, and considering she’s got a more solid profile than the majority, she gets the vote to take this. Aquarian and Jaycols Star rate next best, whilst it is too soon to write off Some Operator.
