Timeform identify the three best bets at Hereford on Sunday…
“…a return to this trip could bring even more out of him…”
Timeform on Mr Jack
Mr Jack – 14:20 Hereford
Mr Jack is thriving and, given the style of his latest success in first-time cheekpieces at Plumpton last time, a return to this trip could bring even more out of him. The headgear is left off now, but he’s fancied to land the hat-trick, despite the presence of Hidden Commander, who is a potential big improver now handicapping. Torn And Frayed also warrants consideration.
Grand Turina – 15:20 Hereford
Grand Turina was in with a serious chance of registering her first win since 2016/17 at Chepstow earlier this month, in a share of the lead and yet to be asked for maximum effort before departing at the last. She is now a 10-year-old, but is on an attractive mark, and is taken to make amends here to break her duck over the larger obstacles. Atlantic Storm is feared most after a break if able to put a couple of lesser efforts behind him, ahead of Templier.
Tinkers Hill Tommy – 15:50 Hereford
Tinkers Hill Tommy clearly hasn’t been the easiest to train, but made a satisfactory start for his new yard after 11 months off when second at Chepstow 23 days ago and, although the form probably isn’t worth a great deal, he can be expected to build on that. He has been dropped 2 lb since, and is very interesting under conditions that will suit. First Figaro has slipped to a good mark and won fresh before, so he’s second choice.
