Timeform pick out three bets from Newcastle and Sheffield on Thursday.
"Elaine Parker’s charge arrives in good order, only a stronger stayer catching her out on Saturday..."
DEMESNE HEIRESS (Trap 1, 14:08) boasts a near 25% strike rate at Sheffield and an even better record in this grade of A3 and we're hopeful she can add to her impressive tally this afternoon. Elaine Parker's charge arrives in good order, only a stronger stayer catching her out on Saturday and whilst she may have to play second fiddle early doors, a handy position can see her assume control from the ¾ point.
SHOTGUN SLADE (Trap 5, 16:08) hasn't tasted success for some time and his record in the orange jacket isn't the most compelling. However, we've a suspicion his make-up between two slow starters is an intriguing one. A fast breaker on his day, he could well steal an early lead this afternoon, and from the front he has often proved a completely different model.
Over at Newcastle, FARLOE RAIDER (Trap 6, 19:26) looks to hold excellent claims of adding to his tally. A real professional from the handicap ranks, he often comes with a late rattle and, with his consistency another admirable attribute, he is fancied to pounce late in the day.
