Timeform pick out three bets from Sheffield on Monday.
FOXY RASCAL (Trap 2, 15:38) has yet to open her account over the standard 500-metre trip, but has posted some solid efforts nonetheless in stronger events than this and gets our vote to set the record straight today. John Sharp's brindle needs to be forgiven a lesser effort on her most recent outing despite not being beaten all that far, but comes out top on our figures in a race which she should be up to playing a lead role, and granted her fair share of luck in-running, she can hopefully add to her sole sprint success which came back in May.
SLANEYSIDE BONNY (Trap 5, 18:04) is remarkably running in her 214th race this afternoon, but the October 2010 whelp's enthusiasm is certainly not waning judged on her exploits of late (can be forgiven last two starts). Jamie Smith's charge has faced sterner opposition than this of late particularly in the context of A6 grade, and in a race lacking in terms of depth, she could well be landing her 47th career success.
We wait until the very last race (18:18) on the card for today's final SmartPlays selection and hopefully it will prove worthwhile with YAHOO JOHNNY (Trap 1) fancied to be bang in the hunt for a medal. Norman Melbourne's son of Mall Brandy has just been ticking over of late, but boasts a particularly good record in this class. His biggest obstacle may well be clearing Saltys Sidekick (Trap 2) but in the hope he can, gets our vote to add to his tally.
