A poor class six split into two divisions. This first contest looks quite poor. Pushkin Museum is the only known front runner. It is third top rated.
However, stall nine isn't ideal. If nothing else wants to lead he looks a prime candidate to hit the front.
Sometimes, out of the blue, something housed near the rails may change tactics. They may try and fail.
Second top rated is Secret Millionaire. He prefers to track the leaders.
Top rated is ELAND ALLY (4/1). Anabel Murphy's charge is another that likes to race prominently. Stall four should afford a decent early position from which to stay on strongly at the death. This gelding must have a good chance of returning to winning ways.
Eland Ally 4/1 Unp
5:30 Wolverhampton - (Division II)
Division II. A poor race. Of these, just five horses have achieved times fast enough to register on my figures. Three have led before, which at least, in theory, makes it easier to analyse.
Swendab may not be able to lead from stall ten.
Roys Legacy is third top rated and has the plum draw. Must have a chance if gaining control of the rails. However, I'm still unsure he will get its own way up front.
Second top rated is Imjin River. William Stone's old time [ten-year-old] could prosper if they go too fast in the early stages.
WARM ORDER is top rated. This 20/1 shot comes from stall three so should be able, at least, contest the lead. If this bay gets to the front he could prove too strong for the opposition. At the price, I'd be looking for an each-way wager.
Warm Order 40/1 7th
SUMMARIES: Both divisions are quite poor. They won't take much winning so stakes will have to be kept on the lower side as consistency isn't a byword in these races. As with all sprints, any mistake is magnified, horses chances have soon come and gone, for little reason. My analysis assessed each horse on the tactics usually deployed. In that sense, I hope they stick to the script and don't ad-lib at any time.
