Timeform pick out three bets from Shawfield on Saturday...
"The improving bitch ran a fine race in a handicap last week..."
Timeform on Droopys Vermont
It's the first heats of the Scottish Derby and a couple of those high up in the ante-post betting could be in for a tough night. One runner we like is BULL RUN BUTTON (Trap 2) who starts her campaign in the third heat at 20:25. She's on a roll and saw off the Belle Vue Oaks winner Wuheida in good style on home soil at Sheffield recently. She will offer a stern test to likely-favourite Forest West.
DOROTAS VIC (Trap 5) has been one of the success stories of the last twelve months at Sheffield and could represent value in the 20:59, taking on Bruisers Bullet, who is favourite for the whole competition in a couple of places. Charlie Lister's charge has improved again since he was knocked out of the Derby by his old rival last summer, reaching the final of the All England Cup at Newcastle where he was a solid third. He's been in fine heart at Sheffield again this year.
Away from the Derby heats and DROOPYS VERMONT (Trap 1) could be one of the best bets on the undercard in the 21:35. The improving bitch ran a fine race in a handicap last week and could be hard to beat if in the same form in this A2.
