Timeform pick out their three best bets from Romford and Sunderland on Wednesday...
"...he ought to get a clear run and have no excuses."
Timeform on Shrewd Operator
T1 Bustino is the best bet of the day at Romford (17.44). The inside has been the place to be at Romford over the last few weeks and the selection is very much at home in the red. She was beaten a short head last time out in a time that stacks up well in respect of the opposition facing her today and with a slow starter on her outside she should make the rails her own today.
Trap 6 has been scoring at an above-expected race at Sunderland this month (while Trap 1 has been performing well below expectations) and that boosts hopes for Shrewd Operator in the 19.42. The selection has finished third in stronger races than this on his last two starts and is the only wide runner in a race containing three middle seeds, so he ought to get a clear run and have no excuses.
T4 Sharp Style has taken a bit of time to get her act together but she won a handicap two runs back receiving 8 metres facing what was a harder task by our reckoning than she faces tonight (20.13) and she looks capable of winning again receiving 7. She ought to get a clear run with a middle seed drawn on her outside and with a short runner in the inside box she can hopefully assert from the third bend.
Bustino (Trap 1) in the 17.44 Romford
Shrewd Operator (Trap 6) in the 19.42 Sunderland
Sharp Style (Trap 4) in the 20.13 Sunderland
