Timeform pick out their three best bets from Southwell on Friday…
“…he is taken to end a lengthy losing run…”
Timeform on Robero
Robero posted another good effort at this venue when chasing home a thriving winner when finished third three weeks ago, going with plenty of zest after a five-week break, and he is taken to end a lengthy losing run fitted with first-time eyeshields able to race from the same mark. The penalised Motajaasid could make hay on the fibresand this winter and is the obvious danger ahead of Holiday Magic and Eponina.
Matterhorn is progressing nicely at present, upping his game again when scoring at Lingfield last week, quickening to lead over two furlongs out and kicking clear of his rivals in the final furlong. He appeals as the type to continue improving, and is taken to add another success to his tally. Three Weeks and Hammer Gun could provide the biggest threats.
Purple Rock took well to this surface when a good second here last month, turning in his best effort of the season, and the form is working out well with the third coming out and winning since. He is now 4 lb below his last winning mark and, in what doesn’t look the strongest race of its type, he can land the spoils. Cousin Khee and Galileo’s Spear rate the principal dangers.
