An 11 runner class 5 race with 7 of them having been known to lead before it looks likely to be run flat out for the class, I've got joining 4th top rated with Bahango in stalll1 and Miracle Garden in stall 3 and both are possible pacesetters, then I've got co 2nd top rated horses with Cruise Tothelimit from stall 2 who is another possible front runner, Powerful Dream my other 2nd joint top could be the 1 to prosper if they go too fast in the battle for the lead and cut each other's throats but my top rated is RED STRIPES 16/1 who has finished 6th on all 3 runs this year but the best of those was when running over this course and distance and didn't get a clear run that day and it's another possible front runner and isn't drawn too badly in stall 4 and I'm hoping it can either get to the front or very prominent and then stay on for the victory but it is a very competitive race so a degree of caution has to be advised with any stakes but I do think the price available is more than generous and I will be going with an each-way wager.
Red Stripes 16/1 10th
3:55 Wolverhampton -
A very nice looking class 2 race with 13 entrants and rather unusually for a sprint race there's only Mishaal known as a front-running sort and normally stall 9 isn't ideal but if its the only 1 that tries to lead then I could be ok and I have marked it down as possibly being able to improve on what its shown so far so who knows how good it will run, Fast Track and Steelriver are my joint 3rd top rated horses and both can be held up while the latter can also track the pace setters and both of them come from the same stable and on jockey bookings the former looks their first choice, in 2nd top spot is King Robert who usually races prominently and could follow the possible leader across to the rails to get a good early position, my top rated is UPAVON 10/1 who has been quite well drawn in stall 4 where it can either race prominently or get a good position on the rails so as to go the shortest way round and then stay on strongly at the finish and luckily the price allows for me to back it each way.
