An apprentice race and a lowly class six race with nine participants of which five, Eland Ally, Chookies Lass, Sartori & Fathom Five have been known to lead but none of these four have recorded a very fast time, so it looks like an early scramble to get to the front, Pull The Pin is the other known front runner and also my second top rated so if this one does get to the front it could be hard to catch but my top rated is INSOLENCEOFOFFICE 33/1 who usually tracks the leaders and will hopefully stay on the strongest at the finish and of course at the price has to be suggested as an each way bet but being an apprentice race stakes should be kept low.
3:20 Wolverhampton - A lowly class six claiming race so not something to get involved in too heavily, Agerzm is the officially top rated but speed wise isn't in my top three at this distance and its two wins have been over six furlongs so these might go too fast for it. The three year old Lady Of Illusion has led before but its times have been very poor, Rise To Glory could try to lead and is my third top rated but is drawn in stall ten, second top rated is Archie Stevens who normally tracks the leaders whilst my top rated ROYAL AQUISITION 13/2 is the third possible front runner and if it gets to the front it will be very hard to catch and its got a five pound apprentice on board which moves it quite a few spots clear.
4:30 Hamilton - Once again a strange race to weight up, both Rock Canyon and Munjally could lead if nothing else wanted to but that's not going to be needed here well I don't think so, Mandalay King is my third top rated and its best time came at this course and distance, Enderby Spirit is my second top rated and like Mandalay King it likes to track the leaders but this one needs genuine fast going to show its best. Pennine Warrior has led before but may prefer softer ground so might not have the pace to lead here so that leaves it to the top weight CENTRE HAAFHD 20/1 who also could lead and on its best time recorded at Carlisle where it led all the way would be good enough here but I'm a little worried that time was a flash in the pan, so im going to give the selection one chance here for a small each way bet to hopefully prove that it can repeat its best figure.
9:00 Kempton - Only seven runners and quite a hard race to solve mainly because I think both Straits Of Malacca and Showtime Star could be hidden dangers from some of their times at other all weather courses, only Great Fun has been known to lead before but even then its times were quite poor and I'm not sure if it will be fast enough to lead at this distance as I think it might need further to show its beast, Oh So Sassy is third top while second spot goes to Plucky Dip despite me believing it would prefer a longer trip so should be staying on at the finish, top spot goes to MERITOCRACY 8/1 who can be held up or track the leaders and it comes from a good stable in the shape of Paul Cole and they have employed Luke Morris to ride it which all points to it running a big race and hopefully it will stay on strongest at the finish.
