Timeform pick out three bets at Sunderland and Harlow this afternoon...
"...but the shape of this race favours him..."
Timeform on Gurtnacrehy Ammo
Sunderland's early card is the scene for the first two selections, with AMYS THOUGHT (T5) looking the one to be with in the handicap at 11.57. He's yet to taste success from six tries in this company, but his run style should be suited to it (picking off inferior rivals ahead of him) and the three metres he gets from Mineola Mary may prove to be decisive.
We stick with the theme of handicaps for the second pick, this time over the 261m trip at 12.41, and GURTNACREHY AMMO (T5) could be the answer. The selection is firmly into the veteran stage of his career and is very much a two-bend handicap regular, but the shape of this race favours him as long as he manages to clear the other scratch runner early.
Over to Harlow for the final fancy, and it's another sprint, but this time it is a regulation D1 affair at 13.08. VICARAGE CLOUD (T3) was an expensive loser for some a week ago having been sent off a short price, but a slow start has been a rarity for him since tackling two bends at his new track, and he's fancied to bounce back here.
