Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Thursday 1 November
Timeform provide three selections from Sheffield's afternoon fixture on Thursday.
"...she looks to have been granted a fine chance by the grader..."
Timeform on Geelo Steel
CATRIGG CLOUD (Trap 2, 15.27) isn't the most consistent, yet her record in A6 company is a solid one and having not been seen to best effect last time, the daughter of Ballymac Vic is fancied to be firmly on the premises this afternoon. Crucially drawn outside a slow starter, she holds sound claims of bossing the inside, and holding the corner could prove the catalyst to success.
TAGALONG MIKEY (Trap 1, 17.06) isn't the showing the form he was capable of earlier in the year, yet in truth that is understandable given he has now reached the veteran stage of his career. Best when able to dictate, Norman Melbourne's charge finds himself in an ideal position, drawn inside a pair of moderate breakers and, with obvious claims on expected time, particularly when able to dictate, all looks set fair for a big run.
We stay at Sheffield for our final selection, and whilst winless to date, we think today could be the day GEELO STEEL (Trap 3, 17.22) bucks that trend. Very much in the infancy of her career, the daughter of Azza Azza Azza has had her chances hindered to a large degree by trouble in running. Crucially this afternoon, she looks to have been granted a fine chance by the grader and we're hopeful she can take it.
Catrigg Cloud (Trap 2) in the 15:27 at Sheffield
