FIREMAN JET (Trap 3) arrives on a losing run stretching back to August but, having not been seen to anything like best effect behind re-opposing Steel City Buck (Trap 6) six days ago, he may well be seen in a better light in the 14:19 contest at Sheffield. Bumped when all set to turn handy on that occasion, it would come as no surprise to see him lead those on his inner this afternoon and if getting loose on the front end, we're hopeful the son of Droopys Jet will be seen in a much better light.
Hove's Coral Sprint Trophy features at 19:36 and the well-drawn RAGTIME BILLY (Trap 6) is fancied to capitalise on what could prove a good make-up as the sole wide seed and dispel some luckless runs on his travels. Consistent at the boxes on home soil, he's fancied to be up with the pace from lid rise and can make full use of his racing room out wide for success.
Our final selection comes at Hove in the Coral Dual Distance at 20:17 and well-established classy operator SMURFS MACHINE (Trap 6) can confirm the promise of his facile success in the heats and take leading honours. Drawn outside a couple of moderate breakers can only aid the cause of Seamus Cahill's charge and the Derby finalist of 2020 can add further success to his tally.
