My Timeform: Eye-catchers from Newmarket, Ascot and Kelso

ArticleImage

Ben Fearnley picks out three eye-catchers to add to your My Timeform trackers...

Madame Bounty (Timeform rating 88) – Newmarket, Saturday October 7

Opportunities may well be fairly thin on the ground for Madame Bounty for the remainder of this season given that she seems to need a quicker surface to be at her best, but she definitely still looks favourably handicapped and looks sure to be winning more races from her current mark at some stage. Her win at Newbury earlier in the season has worked out well, and she left the impression that she may well just sharpen up for her first run in seven weeks, which came at Newmarket on Saturday. She travelled well in behind the leaders that day and though she had to settle for fourth, there are much lower-grade races for her to contest from a mark in the high-70s, and she’s one to look out for next time if dropped in grade (provided the ground isn’t too soft).

Lord Glitters (Timeform rating 116p) – Ascot, Saturday October 7

Lord Glitters had progressed well this season in France, posting back-to-back career bests on his last two starts for his former yard, though it wasn’t clear whether an opening BHA mark of 102 was a lenient one or not as he made his debut for David O’Meara in Saturday’s Challenge Cup. Though he was sent off at 20/1, his opening mark was evidently a very workable one, and he would have been likely to have given the winner more to do had his effort begun sooner. He’d be of obvious interest for the Balmoral Handicap over an extra furlong on Champions Day if taking his chance there, though he’ll be of interest wherever he goes next, likely to come on for his yard debut/first run in five months.

Double W’s (Timeform rating c145) – Kelso, Sunday October 8

Double W’s progressed well during his first season over fences in 2016/17, scoring at Carlisle and Wetherby in October and producing his best effort when winning a handicap at Aintree’s Grand National meeting in April. The form of that race is solid, with the second Theinval running good races at Ayr’s Scottish Grand National meeting later in the month, and Double W’s looked the sort to remain a big player in similar races for a while. He shaped as if in need of his reappearance run at Kelso on Sunday, travelling up strongly on the home turn but stopping quickly after two out and not being given a hard time by his jockey, and he is one to be interested in from a BHA mark of 144 with that run under his belt.
