Timeform pick out three bets from Sheffield on Friday.
"Barrie Draper’s bitch has been acquitting herself with credit in stronger races than this of late..."
The very first race at 18:39 features our first selection, a race which may well be set up for a finisher in our book and, with that in mind, LEONAS LARK (Trap 2) could well be the answer to this tricky puzzle. Elaine Parker's charge boasts a cracking strike-rate and, on the back of some solid efforts in defeat of late, the August 2012 daughter of College Causeway can hopefully seize the initiative late in the day. Swift Eliot (Trap 4) fits a very similar bill as the selection and may well provide the chief threat/forecast play.
The 20:14 contest features our second selection and hopefully a chance for the consistent SIBSEY ANNIE (Trap 4) to quickly grab the winning initiative on the front-end. Barrie Draper's bitch has been acquitting herself with credit in stronger races than this of late and could well find herself in a cracking position at the opening corner. She gets our vote with Lasting Merry (Trap 6), who looks well berthed granted a clear run out wide, fancied to be challenging late in the day.
We side with a class dropper in the very next race at 20:31 and, all things being equal, a chance for DERRYHOGAN TIZZY (Trap 3) to regain the winning thread. The daughter of Westmead Hawk produced an electric burst of early pace last week, before finding some higher rated rivals too hot to handle in a strong A3 grade. However, she is seemingly tackling inferior rivals than she did seven days ago and can get back to winning ways, whilst Foxy Rascal (Trap 2), who rates the type to do better for John Sharp, can provide the lead threat and fill the forecast spot.
