Timeform pick out three bets from Sheffield on Friday.
"The daughter of Kinloch Brae has generally been acquitting herself with credit in tougher events than this of late..."
The meeting kicks off with an A4 contest at 18:39 and hopefully a winner for us in the shape of Elaine Parker's SWIFT DIXIE (Trap 3). The daughter of Kinloch Brae has generally been acquitting herself with credit in tougher events than this of late and her latest effort is best forgotten (badly bumped early on). She has the form and the times in the book to play a significant role here granted more luck in running and can hopefully return to winning ways.
There may well be a pace burn up in tonight's A2 at 18:56 with no less than five of the six runners usually seen to best effect when bowling along on the front-end. With that in mind, RAZLDAZL GODSEND (Trap 2) could be the answer to grab the prize late in the day. Well known for his late gains, the son of Godsend is not expected to be about early doors but, with Trap 3 expected to be taking a middle course (predominantly racing from trap 5 of late), Elaine Parker's charge should get a good tow through the race from the trail blazing Geelo Cinders (Trap 1). He is likely to be powering home from the third turn and, in the hope his absence of just over two weeks is no more than a short break, Razldazl Godsend could be the answer.
We take a leap of faith at 21:02 in the hope WHINMOOR TOPSY (Trap 1) can utilise what looks an excellent make-up on the rails (berthed inside a slow starter) and get back on track in her favoured red jacket. Martin Cutler's charge had little luck when we beaten two starts ago and, while she has to bounce back from a lesser effort last time, she could well represent a fair amount of value, particularly given she is a capable of posting times around the 30 dead mark. Getgoin Jolly (Trap 6) rates the lead threat with a clear run and can provide the forecast play.
