Thirteen runners with with known front runners in the three year old Cumbrainna, Big City Boy and Red Cape but none of them are in my top four ratings, Diamond Vine is third top and Knockamany Bends second top but there a few spots behind SEVEN LUCKY SEVEN 7/1 who normally likes to sit just behind the leader and then stay on strongly and its last two runs have been in class five races so will find this class six race a bit easier.
2:25 Wolverhampton - Ten runners in a class five claiming race and there could be a few hidden dangers especially as there's no known front runners in the field, ive got two horses a bit ahead of the rest and Bush Beauty starts of as the original top rated but the jockey is a seven pound claiming apprentice and has ridden five times before for the stable without winning plus the trainer doesn't do that well with his older horses here, so if I add the weight to the the other ones weight LOGAN'S LAD 8/1 becomes the top rated and has been in reasonable form lately and has a top class jockey on board which all points to them expecting it to run a big race but as I've said there are a few who could be slightly hidden dangers so stakes should be kept low.
3:40 Pontefract - Ten runners again here and a class three event but a very hard race to narrow down but this is the best I can do, Native Falls did one time at Ayr last year when it led that would be more than enough to win this but hasn't been anywhere near that time since so it might have been a fluke time and its recent form has been poor, Deauville Prince might like this stiff course as it really might be better over further but will be staying on strongly at the finish and I cannot throw it out of my reckoning easily, Sunraider is another that's been out of form lately but has been known to spring back to form without warning but I think I would take the risk in this race, Barkston Ash isn't the fastest of these but it is quite consistent with its finishing times but not sure if it can win in one of the previous three I've mentioned run to their best, Manatee bay looks good in lower class races than this and I doubt if it will be class enough to win this. So I'm going to dutch DEAUVILLE PRINCE 5/1 and BARKSTON ASH 12/1 each way so even if only the latter makes the frame we will show a small profit.
Seven Lucky Seven 7/1 Unp
Logan's Lad 10/1 2nd
Deauville Prince 5/1 3rd
Barkston Ash 12/1 8th
