Timeform on Popular Ciaraeve
Newcastle's afternoon card is the venue for bet number one, with KILGRANEY MAX (Trap 3) fancied to get it right in A6 company this time. He's found one too good on his last two outings at this level, but was contesting A2 contests this time last year and when it does fall right, we will surely hammer opposition of the like he faces in the 17:27 affair.
Later at Sheffield, the versatile SWIFT CLANCY (Trap 2) seemingly has a lot in his favour in the A2 contest at 19:36. An open-class performer over the 660m trip, Swift Clancy is a strong stayer over the standard trip, drawing away to land a similar-standard race to this last month and he made big late strides from an unpromising position when grabbing second last week.
There's sprint action at 21:36, and POPULAR CIARAEVE (Trap 2) looks the way to go back in D3 company. She's perhaps not a natural sprinter given she can miss the break, but the difference between D2 and D3 contest at Owlerton can be significant, and the drop in class here will ensure the selection is very competitive if breaking on terms.
KILGRANEY MAX (Trap 3) - Newcastle 17:27
SWIFT CLANCY (Trap 2) - Sheffield 19:36
POPULAR CIARAEVE (Trap 2) - Sheffield 21:36
