Timeform pick out three bets from Nottingham and Sheffield on Monday...
"A handy pitch can see him boss this evening's rivals..."
DEBBYCOT RUBY (Trap 6, 14:08) had little go right in her bid to end a losing run stretching back to December when runner-up four days ago, crowding on the run up ultimately proving her undoing. However, she was noted doing good late work, and given her draw this afternoon (outside a habitual slow starter) all looks set fair for a big run.
ONLY CHANGE (Trap 4, 14:47) hasn't truly been seeing her races out in recent weeks, yet her customary early dash still seems firmly intact and, down a peg on the graded ladder, she may be up to getting back on track. Today's contest lacks much in the way of depth and we're hopeful Norman Melbourne's charge can have enough in reserve to take her record to 3-7 in the grade.
We step up in class for our final selection, which comes in Nottingham's 20:37, with SIDARIAN BLU RAY (Trap 1) fancied to make a bold bid. Charlie Lister's blue had little go right on his last competitive outing over C&D, but highlighted his well-being when going under the 30 second marker in a C&D trial seven days ago. He will need to trap clever out of the red jacket, but a handy pitch can see him boss this evening's rivals, with his stamina for this test more than assured.
