Timeform on Geelo Misty
GEELO MISTY (Trap 4) has made a fine start to his career at Sheffield landing 4 of his 6 starts over 4 bends and in truth is best not judged on her latest defeat in A4 class, understandably no match for a subsequent A2 winner, but mixing it well enough with the remainder. The grader has been quick to employ some mercy on Carl Perry's bitch and another of her swift exits from the boxes should see her tough to peg back in Sheffield's 14:08 contest.
Remaining at Sheffield, in the 17:56, STEPASIDE RONNIE (Trap 6) encounters a quick turnaround having finished runner-up in a C&D D3 sprint contest at Monday but he's clearly a grader in rude health and can get back to winning ways by our reckoning. Jamie Smith's charge has a decent strike rate and lines up in a race lacking depth, so all looks set fair for a bold showing.
We head to Newcastle for our final selection this evening at 20:44, with newcomer to these shores ARALWOOD GOLDEN (Trap 5) fancied to build on some handy exploits in trials. Close to dipping under the 29-second barrier, the daughter of Droopys Jet has impressed with her exploits on the sectional clock. Angela Harrison's charge isn't lacking for experience given she was progressive through the graded ranks in Ireland and we're hopeful she can hit the ground running, meeting with competitive action for the first time over here.
GEELO MISTY - 14:08 Sheffield
STEPASIDE RONNIE - 17:56 Sheffield
ARALWOOD GOLDEN - 20:44 Newcastle
