Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Saturday 16 February
Timeform pick out their three best bets from Sheffield and Doncaster on Saturday...
"....that is where the selection can take a stranglehold on the contest...."
Timeform on Rough Houdini
Doncaster's afternoon card is the destination for bet number one, with ROUGH HOUDINI (T2) rather leaping off the page in the B7 contest at 16.57. The short run to the first bend over the 450m trip means an early track position is crucial, and that is where the selection can take a stranglehold on the contest given she's nicely clear on our early sectionals.
Across to Sheffield's evening fixture for the other wagers, with STANZA (T4) expected to come good in the A6 at 20.08. He's essentially better than this grade, and though off the track for a spell around the turn of the year, he should now be spot on fitness-wise for this assignment and if that is the case, he ought to make his class tell.
There's early speed across the track in the 480m B1 at 20.44, but RAMOR EXPRESS (T1) took a similar race to this apart the last time he contested this trip and the return to the red jacket could be a big help. Frolicandfun on his outside is a strong stayer but rarely pings the lids, so Ramor Express will hopefully be away and gone on the inside.
Rough Houdini Trap 2 - 16.57 Doncaster
Stanza Trap 4 - 20.08 Sheffield
Ramor Express Trap 1 - 20.44 Sheffield
