Timeform pick out bets from Sheffield and Newcastle on Thursday.
"Anything like a clear run early doors can see him add to his tally."
Sheffield's second race rates an excellent chance for DABOYBRIAN (Trap 4) to resume winning ways when he lines up this afternoon's D2 contest at 14:27. Lisa Stephenson's charge stands out on the clock in this line-up and anything like a clear run early doors can see him add to his tally.
Over at Newcastle EXPRESS BAY (Trap 6) looks to hold solid claims of coming fast and late and landing the handicap at 18:38. The daughter of Tubbertelly Dubh hasn't got overly competitive in recent weeks, yet lines up in a race short on potential, and provided she's on the coat tails of the leaders from the three-quarter point, is expected to have matters in hand.
Staying at Newcastle, we think the winning sequence of POOLIE ANNA (Trap 6, 19:26) can continue apace. Her style of running is tailor-made for handicap racing, her record of nine wins from 13 starts highlighting that fact. A bit in form is worth keeping on side and she can come fast and late and add to her impressive strike-rate.
