Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Monday 13 August
Timeform pick out their three best bets from Towcester on Sunday evening...
"...there is good reason to expect Matt Dartnall's charge to improve for that run..."
Timeform on Ela Bomber
BALLYMAC DEFO (Trap 1, 20.08) hasn't been seen in action at Colwick Park since May but that doesn't detract from his marvellous record here (6 wins from 7 starts) and he is fancied to come out on top having scored in good style at Swindon recently. His draw in the red jacket looks a good one and one of his fast exits from the boxes can see him home in front.
SWIFT TAXMAN's (Trap 2, 20.37) main asset is his excellent early pace and attribute he has displayed many times during his short career at Nottingham to date. Beaten in a strong-looking contest last time, his previous exploits read particularly well in the context of tonight's event and, granted another smash break from the boxes, he may well prove a tough nut to crack from the front.
Whilst ELA BOMBER (Trap 6, 21.06) didn't set the world alight in his C&D trial recently, there is good reason to expect Matt Dartnall's charge to improve for that run, just as he did when scoring at Monmore earlier this month. He has a fair amount of early pace judged on just a handful of starts to date, and with potential for better still, he is fancied to provide some value.
Ballymac Defo (Trap 1) in the 20:08 at Nottingham
Swift Taxman (Trap 2) in the 20:37 at Nottingham
Ela Bomber (Trap 6) in the 21:06 at Nottingham
