Timeform pick out their three best bets from Woodbine on Sunday…
“…fancied to maintain his unbeaten record with further improvement on the cards…”
Timeform on Western Curl
#4 SILENT JET – Woodbine R2 (18:31 GMT)
Downy Boy and SILENT JET were second and third in a similar event here last month and there is unlikely to be much between them again, with marginal preference for the latter. He has even stronger form than that in the book and this slightly shorter trip is expected to be in his favour.
WESTERN CURL created a good impression when making a winning debut on turf here seven weeks ago and is fancied to maintain his unbeaten record with further improvement on the cards. Scat’s Rose is stepping up more than two furlongs in trip, but should still emerge as the chief threat.
MELMICH was a decisive winner of an allowance event here last time and looks sure to give another good account as he attempts to add to his fine record in this Grade 3; he won it in 2015 and has found only one too good in the last two renewals. Vintage Matters is next best.
