Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Thursday 23 August
Timeform pick out their best three bets from Sheffield and Newcastle on Thursday...
"...this looks an ideal opportunity for the son of Droopys Cain to regain the winning thread..."
Timeform on Gazilly Shay
BALLYMAC HEIDI (Trap 3) has been in decent form of late and looks to have been granted a good opportunity to add further success to her tally in the 14:08 at Sheffield. The daughter of Ballymac Eske rates a likely leader down the middle and she ought to be difficult to dislodge if getting on the bunny.
Sheffield's 16:07 is a low-grade A8 affair but one hound who boasts a particularly good record in this class is SOUTHWIND LUCY (Trap 3) and she is fancied to strike once more. The daughter of Mall Brandy had little go right in her latest race but anything like a clear run this afternoon can see her home in front.
GAZILLY SHAY (Trap 6) hasn't tasted success since late May, yet in his defence he has been relatively lightly raced and generally competing at a higher level. His recent exploits in C&D Open/A1 events read well in the context of Newcastle's 19:09 and this looks an ideal opportunity for the son of Droopys Cain to regain the winning thread.
BALLYMAC HEIDI (Trap 3) - Sheffield 14:08
SOUTHWIND LUCY (Trap 3) - Sheffield 16:07
GAZILLY SHAY (Trap 6) - Newcastle 19:09
