Timeform provide three selections at Crayford and Newcastle on Thursday evening...
"There's every chance she can cope with a rise in class..."
Timeform on Stophers Brandy
Better was expected of STOPHERS BRANDY (Trap 6) over six bends at Crayford given she has always looked like a stayer over the standard trip, but it's perhaps starting click given she did really well to overcome trouble in an S8 contest last week. There's every chance she can cope with a rise in class in the 17.37.
YES THAT'S TRUE (Trap 5) has been getting tangled up at the first bend of late, but the feeling is that she is slightly better than A5 Crayford class when getting a clear run at things. With Winning Distance on her outside hit-or-miss out of the boxes, the make-up of 17.54 looks ideal for the selection to prove that point.
In a race that looks full of potential improvers at Newcastle at 18.56 BRAMBLE CAPONE (Trap 5) is fancied to come out on top. He shaped well in trials before overcoming a slow start to win in good style on his debut last week. There is more to come.
