Timeform pick out three bets from Crayford and Wimbledon on Tuesday.
"A most brilliant winner of last year’s Dorando Marathon, it is safe she didn’t endure the best of starts to 2016..."
Crayford's 14:27 is over the extended distance of 540 metres, and whilst it rates a competitive affair on paper, we think there may be some mileage in supporting CLARES JAYFKAY (Trap 2) to regain the winning thread. Barry O'Sullivan's charge is a force to be reckoned with in graded racing on home soil and got no luck in running when tackling superior rivals on last month's Sky card. The daughter of Razldazl Jayfkay produced another perfectly respectable effort in A2 Company since, typically making late gains from the rear, grabbing third. The grader looks to have given the selection excellent claims of quickly grabbing a handy position, and, given her strong running style at the trip, she looks worth siding with to hopefully get Tuesday off to a good start.
The marathon stars take centre-stage in Wimbledon's 20:16, and we're hopeful Hayley Keightley's scintillating ROXHOLME MAGIC (Trap 5) can add further success to her already impressive tally. A most brilliant winner of last year's Dorando Marathon, it is safe she didn't endure the best of starts to 2016, finishing well held at both Crayford and Sittingbourne. However the daughter of Definate Opinion announced herself anything but a spent force, when relishing the step up to 1048 metres and breaking the clock in the process at the former venue last month. A Swindon trial since ought to have blown the cobwebs away, and she may well prove too strong for fellow classy, old adversary Droopys Tamera.
The Racing Post Standard over 480 metres at 20:33 features today's final selection, with BARRICANE TIGER (Trap 1) fancied to continue on his good run of recent form. The Towcester raider has been a steady improver upon joining current connections, posting excellent efforts at that venue and Monmore of late. A recent C&D trial behind re-opposing Airfield Bruce was a perfectly adequate performance ahead of this (was bumped early on), and in the hope he can skip any trouble spots this time, he can hopefully add another win to his tally, his strong-running style looking a very useful asset.
