Timeform pick out bets from three different venues on Thursday...
"Angela Harrison’s charge packs a solid punch over this trip..."
STRIDES MARILYN (Trap 4) has landed two of her last four starts in A6 company prior to a lesser effort in handicap company five days ago. Therefore it comes as something of a surprise to see the track veteran dropped so quickly to A7 class in the 18:11 at Sheffield, and she could be worth chancing. The daughter of Makeshift has cracking early speed for one at a low level and we're hopeful she can boss matters from lid rise.
We head to Monmore for our next selection, which comes in a Puppy Derby Trial Stakes at 19:59, with DROOPYS DEV (Trap 5) narrowly fancied to come out on top. The son of Greenwell Hawk has quickly showed a high level of form on home soil Newcastle, routing A1 opposition on his most recent competitive outing. He showed his well-being in a solo trial seven days ago, and a big run looks on the cards granted a clear run.
Over at Newcastle, ALNWICK ESME (Trap 5) doesn't find the winning habit easy over four bends, but her claims in the 20:58 look glaringly obvious. Angela Harrison's charge packs a solid punch over this trip and, with solid claims on expected final time, she can play her part from the ¾ point.
