Timeform pick out their three best bets from Sheffield on Saturday evening...
"He very much caught the eye on his first competitive start over 500 metres 11 days ago..."
Timeform on Lightfoot Mick
It's interesting to see a host of Swift Hoffman pups hitting the ground, a high class operator in his own right, and one individual who looks worth keeping on side is LIGHTFOOT MICK (Trap 3) who lines up in Sheffield's 18:26. He very much caught the eye on his first competitive start over 500 metres 11 days ago, his surge between bends 3 & 4 most encouraging before hitting trouble and with improvement expected a bold bid looks likely.
A regular fixture of Sheffield's Saturday night card is the 660 metre handicap and that event features at 20:08, with BANDICOOT PIPPY (Trap 6) fancied to end a losing run stretching back to February. She is fancied to quickly have a host of fellow, slowly away rivals in her sights in the early exchanges. Interestingly, her last victory was gained in open company and she won't need to be anywhere near that level to play a lead role here.
Our final Sheffield selection comes at 22:12 with the class-dropping LOUGHGUR OTTIE (Trap 1) fancied to be seen in a much better light back in the red jacket. The daughter of Droopys Jet arrives on the back of four-race losing run, yet still comes out top on Timeform figures (TF 79) and drawn to attack inside an inexperienced, slow starting newcomer, she is fancied to make a bold bid from the front.
