Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Friday 12 April
Timeform pick out their three best bets from Sunderland on Friday evening...
"A repeat of his effort in this grade three starts back would easily be enough to take tonight’s contest..."
Timeform on Nutty Percy
EMMA LULU (Trap 4, 20:11) arrives on a losing run of five, but in truth her efforts have been commendable in the main, going down by a mere short head in A1 company five days ago. A strong-running sort, her chances can often depend on luck-in-running, yet granted luck-in-running, she is fancied to prove too strong for this evening's rivals.
NUTTY PERCY (Trap 6, 21:16) has yet to truly master the art of trapping, yet the son of Droopys Jet does have time on his side being only an August 17' whelp. A repeat of his effort in this grade three starts back would easily be enough to take tonight's contest and his draw out wide looks a good one for him to capitalise.
KINGSMILL OSLO (Trap 4, 21:33) never truly got to grips with the demands of Romford, his style of racing hardly affording itself to success around the Essex venue. However, the longer trip here promised to suit and he proved as much when getting on top late on in this grade eight days ago, despite a less-than-ideal passage. That was his best effort to date at this venue but further improvement rates a distinct possibility and the son of Head Bound can strike.
