Timeform pick out three bets from Sheffield on Thursday.
"Saltys Sidekick should lead up comfortably on the inside, and will be a tough nut to crack if that proves the case."
SALTYS SIDEKICK (T2) posted a big personal best on the clock when a decisive all-the-way winner of an A4 contest on his penultimate start, and his subsequent defeat in this grade is easy to draw a line through. With moderate starters either side in Sheffield's 11.42, Saltys Sidekick should lead up comfortably on the inside, and will be a tough nut to crack if that proves the case.
Continuing the theme of early paced types with a big shout on the clock, LIGHTFOOT JADE (T4) is the next pick at 12:58. Often the subject of market support, it's slightly frustrating that the selection has failed to win in this grade from seven attempts (is an A5 and D3 scorer) but she has time on her side and is well drawn to lead up on the outside.
SOBER BLACKIE (T5) has strung together a series of solid efforts having justified favouritism in an A5 a month ago, and taking on largely exposed rivals, looks the play in the 13:44. Sober Blackie isn't always the quickest away, but can pace up out wide which should enable him to get into a position to strike.
