This class four race has one drawback. Who will set the pace?
Both the top two in the handicap look as though they are better horses over a longer trip. If this is a slowly run race they will probably be outpaced in a two-furlong sprint.
On times from Wolverhampton, the bottom three are well weighted but may be found out in this higher class race.
The top rated on course times is FREDRICKA 9/1 who can be held up or track the pace setters. One thing bugs me! The trainer has had three winners at this course but from his older brigade, he's zero from seventeen. However, this looks a good opportunity for him to break his duck. Keep to small stakes.

A very nice class two conditions race over 5f. Seven of the nine runners have been known to lead so this will most likely be fast and furious. I can't find the link between the times here and those from Wolverhampton so I'm going to have to go with my top rated from both courses which is BOWSON FRED 8/1 and ROYAL BIRTH 8/1 but I also have marks against three other runners as being possibly hidden dangers. Keep stakes low.

This is a very poor class seven race. Most of these have very little to inspire parting with my money but I have hopefully found something to get my teeth into. Of the twelve runners, I've only found two horses that have led before, (mainly because they are not fast enough to lead). Also, I've only one horse with a recorded time so I'm hoping from stall two LOUIS VEE 7/2 can gain control on the rails and lead all the way. However, consistency isn't a byword at this level but I'm hoping it might prove worthwhile having a small wager but have to admit there's not much value in its price but I have to go with my figures else there's no point in doing my speed ratings.
