Timeform on Dandy Lad
Mucky Carmac (Trap 5) - 19.16 Nottingham
MUCKY CARMAC (Trap 5, 19.16) arrives winless on the back of four starts in graded company at Nottingham, but he's improving all the time, again finding one too good but posting his best time yet on the clock 10 days ago. An quick sort with potential for better still, he's fancied to seize the lead out wide from the orange jacket and have enough in reserve to hold off the challengers and shed the maiden tag.
Heat one of the Arena Racing Company 480m Trophy doesn't look a strong affair on paper and it is BOBBLY WOBBLY (Trap 4, 20.52) who is fancied to come out on top. A real early-paced merchant, he ran well to finish runner-up over the 305-metre trip on his most recent start. The likeliest leader this evening, this intermediate four-bend trip at Nottingham is ideal for the son of Droopys Jet and all looks set fair for a big run.
Heat three is the last race on the card at 21.26 and, on the back of some fairly slick trials, DANDY LAD (Trap 2) may well be the answer. A classy top-grade operator at Henlow, he boasts a nice blend of early speed and stamina and with the balance of his form standing up to close scrutiny in this field, we're hopeful he can turn handy on the inside and stamp his authority on the contest from halfway.
