Timeformโ€™s three best bets at Wolverhampton on Thursday 20 May



Timeform pick out the best bets at Wolverhampton on Thursday.

“…he still remains well treated on the pick of his form…”

Timeform on Nubough

True Destiny – 15:40 Wolverhampton

True Destiny hasn’t won since June 2019 but left the impression he was back in form when finishing second to a well-backed rival who set a steady pace at Lingfield last month. That was his first run since undergoing another breathing operation, and he left the impression that he would have been better suited by a stronger gallop. True Destiny is better than this grade and should take some stopping.

Nubough – 16:10 Wolverhampton

Nubough remains with just one win to his name, and that came over two years ago, but he took a big step back in the right direction with the hood refitted over this trip at Ayr last month. He deserved extra credit for sticking to the task too, as he was up with the strong pace throughout the race, still clawing back at the winner at the line. The handicapper has raised him 3 lb for that effort, but he still remains well treated on the pick of his form, and will go close if in the same mood.

Mostaqqer – 17:10 Wolverhampton

Mostaqqer showed improved form to open his account for this yard over course and distance last month and proved even better in defeat when a good second at Lingfield 10 days ago. His improvement has coincided with the fitting of cheekpieces and, given the way he travelled that day, he will again be of interest in a race lacking much depth.
