Timeform highlight the three best bets from the opening rounds of the Oaks at Perry Barr on Saturday...
"...her claims on expected final time are second to none in this field..."
Timeform on Newinn Liz
Boasting a smart Irish card, DROOPYS SAMANTHA (Trap 3, 14:19 Perry Barr) whilst lightly raced, has continued the good work for the Kevin Hutton kennel. Doubling her tally on these shores at Towcester last month, she took a sizeable step forward from her first C&D trial, posting a very slick 28.13 nine days ago. On the back of just eight career starts, there's highly likely more to come from the October 19' whelp and in a heat lacking a great deal of depth, we're hopeful she can boss matters from lid rise and make every post a winning one.
FABULOUS AZURRA (Trap 4, 15:09 Perry Barr) is fancied to get her Oaks challenge off to a flying start in heat five. She wasn't far off her trial exploit when runner-up in a C&D open eight days ago, keeping on for second having met crowding at crucial points. Turning handy at the very least rates a distinct possibility this afternoon and Pat Janssens' charge can book her place in round two.
Our final selection on Saturday afternoon comes in heat seven and NEWINN LIZ (Trap 6, 15:44 Perry Barr) who has returned in grand order following a spell on the side-lines is fancied to make the most of what looks an excellent make-up as the sole wide seed. A bitch blessed with fine early pace, her claims on expected final time are second to none in this field and we're hopeful she can go toe-to-toe with fellow classy trail-blazer Geelo Gold Dust (Trap 4) and assert from halfway.
