Timeform on Dragon Obama
OUR JACKS PIPER (Trap 3) hasn't really had things go to plan since his facile victory in a higher grade in June. Yet, following a spell on the side-lines, the grader has given him an obvious chance of regaining the winning thread in the 12:54 at Crayford, and he ought to prove spot on with a couple of recent spins under his belt.
DRAGON OBAMA (Trap 6) has failed to get competitive in recent outings, on the balance of recent form essentially looking out of his pay grade. However, the grader has well and truly relinquished his grip and, whilst his slow starting always leaves him a hostage to fortune around the opening turns, there is no doubt he can play a lead role granted a clear shot at things in Newcastle's 17:39.
Over at Nottingham, PEREGRINE BILLY (Trap 6, 20:44) is fancied to sign us off with success. His recent efforts aren't overly inspiring but his times still stand up to close scrutiny in a race lacking depth and operating as the sole wide seed, he is fancied to double his career tally at Colwick Park.
