Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Thursday 18 October
Timeform provide selections from Sheffield & Newcastle on Thursday...
"...drawn inside a habitual slow starter, he can hold his pitch and play his hand from the 3/4 point."
Timeform on Jaguar Jack
KNOCKALTON TED (Trap 1, 18.11) strictly ran below form on his latest C&D start, yet in truth his effort was a display containing plenty of promise. A missed break hindered his chance of winning yet he showed abundant pace and, with his starting usually very consistent, we're hopeful he gets it right at the boxes and makes every post a winning one.
Over at Newcastle, DROOPYS HERON (Trap 6, 18.55) is fancied to land heat 3 of the William Hill Puppy. The son of Romeo Recruit has made a cracking start to his career at Newcastle, winning again in open class, prior to routing A1 opposition by 6 lengths 5 days ago. He can put his course knowledge to good use, in a race sure to throw up plenty of winners.
We also see the semi-finals of the William Hill All England Cup and we think JAGUAR JACK (Trap 1) can book his place in next week's final when he lines up at 20.29. Runner-up behind re-opposing Falcon Bay last time, the son of Taylors Sky is entitled to come on for that run (first competitive start since mid-September) and, drawn inside a habitual slow starter, he can hold his pitch and play his hand from the 3/4 point.
Win back Knockalton Ted (Trap 1) in the 18:11 at Sheffield
Win back Droopys Heron (Trap 6) in the 18:55 at Newcastle
Win back Jaguar Jack (Trap 1) in the 20:29 at Newcastle
