Timeform pick out three bets from Newcastle and Perry Barr on Thursday.
"...a clear passage can see this vastly experienced sort come home in front..."
Timeform on Droopys Bouchard
Whilst his style of running always often leaves him a hostage to fortune, the claims of SHIFT THE HAWK (Trap 4) look fairly obvious with a clear run in the 11:57 at Perry Barr. The son of Makeshift holds a solid record in the grade of D3 and, provided he holds his position to the corner, all looks set fair for a big run.
WRAYSBURY FOXY (Trap 5) wasn't at her best in A3 Company last time, but she should do better starting out in handicaps in Newcastle's 18:38 contest, as her recent record highlights. A facile scorer in late April, this doesn't appeal as an overly strong race and she holds solid claims.
DROOPYS BOUCHARD (Trap 2) had little go right in A2 Company last week, but the grader has been quick to relinquish his grip and, having scored in A3 class on her penultimate outing, a clear passage can see this vastly experienced sort come home in front in the 20:43 at Newcastle.
