TIMBER TREASURE is given the vote to follow up from his recent course success at the expense of Ancient Cross and Salerosa. The selection won here over a slightly longer trip but none the less he is as equally as affective over this tip as he is over shorter. Connections are keep to get another run into him before the handicapper gets a chance to reassess his rating and for that reason he is worth staying on the right side of for the time being. Ancient Cross is still winless after sixteen attempts. That said he has been knocking on the door of late and has been running consistently well in defeat. As a result the handicapper has a good measure of him but another bold bid can be expected. Salerosa has won twice this season and always seems to give her all. She was not beaten far when finishing third of sixteen behind Zomerlust at York last time out and she is another to note in the betting market. Timber Treasure does however look well treated and if at his best he will take all the beating.
