Timeform on Droopys Dazzler

Yarmouth can often be a difficult circuit to navigate and Newcastle raider Droopys Dazzler (Trap 3, 20.06) highlighted that point despite the benefit of two previous C&D trials, breaking well but moving markedly wide off the second bend before straightening up. A low-mileage April 2018 whelp he left plenty of time on the track in his opening heat 7 days ago yet still managed to dip under the 28-second barrier. On balance given how he shaped, the move off the fence to the white jacket is a good move for Angela Harrison's charge, particularly outside two inconsistent trappers. The son of Droopys Jet tops the Timeform figures and there is a strong possibility he can improve his rating as he gains more experience over 4-bend trips and he can justify the long trip down from the North East and book his place in next week's final.

It's probably fair to say those lining up in semi-final two at 20.21 will be pleased to have escaped several topping the ante post betting and it may pay to take a chance on one who was unfancied last week Detroit operating from Trap 1. Having his first competitive start since early June, John Mullins' charge was held up by early crowding initially but was noted making good late inroads behind a pair that had stolen first march. An upwardly mobile sort in graded company earlier in the year, he's expected to strip fitter for that run and is expected to surprise a few in a tricky affair. Lastfortheroad (Trap 3) is a reliable A1 operator himself at Yarmouth and whilst beaten 5 lengths in to third last time, he did shape up well behind an easy winner and may provide the forecast play.

The final semi-final takes centre stage at 20.36 and possibly another victory for John Mullins in the shape of Swift Lettuce (Trap 2). A tremendously consistent performer, he displayed excellent opening acceleration from the red jacket when winning his heat in a recorded time of 27.73 posting a very smart Timeform figure of 147. The move to blue is expected to hold no fears and it is hoped he will have the early gears to hold fellow semi-final winner Kilara Lion (Trap 1) on the approach to the opening corner. It's distinctly possible the selection will have to play second fiddle initially to the explosive early-paced Levante Beach (Trap 4) but Swift Lettuce has already proven he's not reliant on an early lead and another bold show looks on the cards.
