Timeform on Jaguar Jet

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Shawfield on Saturday evening...

A bumper Easter crowd is expected at Shawfield which stages the first heats of the Scottish Derby. Ante-post favourite DROOPYS VERVE (Trap 1) looks sure to book his place in the next round with victory in the first contest at 19:53. The English Derby runner-up added Newcastle's All England Cup to his haul on home soil in the autumn and continues in fine form, easily winning a Trainers' Championship race at Sheffield a fortnight ago. He posted an eye-catching time in a spin around the Glasgow venue last week and could go all the way.

Angela Harrison has a very strong hand in the £20,000 competition and her DROOPYS EXPERT (Trap 3) is fancied to get the job done in the second heat at 20:10. Droopys Expert has come back all guns blazing this year, finishing second in the Steel City Cup at Sheffield before giving his trainer the all-important final win in the Trainers' Championship back there. He's another to have had a recent sighter of Shawfield and should be hard to beat.

The best bet away from the Derby heats is JAGUAR JET (Trap 1) in the 21:53 A1. He won a similar event in dominant fashion at the start of the month and clocked another good time in a stronger open race last week. This looks his for the taking.
