3:10 Wolverhampton Racing Tips (17th December)

3:10 WOLVERHAMPTON -
Major Crispies decent trainer and jockey stats but timewise not in my top 3 and from stall 12 I would look to lay it.
Big Lachie is usually held up for a late run and hopefully, from stall 4 it can get a clear run as it's my top rated but the jockey is 0-7 for this stable, it has to be a bet.
Plucky Dip may need a longer distance to show its true worth and may not be able to catch the leaders here so another that I would look to maybe lay.
Kingsley Klarion has good trainer and jockey stats but its another that may need further and its housed just inside a fast starter which isn't ideal.
Field Of Vision always looks a better horse over a shorter distance although it does not run over this course and distance a lay in my books and has poor trainer and jockey stats.
A Sure Welcome is actually my 2nd top rated and they have employed a jockey who is 1 from 3 for the stable to ride this 3-year-old so must have a chance.9
Hamish McGonagall looks as though this distance is too short but it can finish fast and is 3rd best on my figures, so chances to make the frame if getting a clear run from stall 10.
Air Of York hasn't shown much at this course and distance since 2015 but it does have an interesting jockey booking, it has been known to lead before and stall 3 could be ideal here.
Perfect Symphony hasn't any course form but does look as though its a better horse over a shorter trip and another I would lay.
Poppy In The Wind recorded a fastish time at Newcastle in 2016 but it may struggle to stay the distance if its a fast run early pace but has a positive jockey booking.
Run With Pride hasnt run here in the last 2 years and even then a longer trip may be required for it to show its true worth.
Picks Pinta is 0 from 9 on the all-weather tracks and has a slow time from this course and distance and may need further and a lay in my book.
CONCLUSION
Theres 6 runners i would look to lay in this race and theres 2 others i would add to the list if they didnt have good jockey stats which leaves me with 3 that i think could win the race, Hamish McGonagain my 3rd top rated ought to be staying on if it gets a clear run from stall 10 and could at least make the frame, A Sure Welcome usually likes to track the leaders and it could get a tow along here as long as its not forced to race wide on the bends. My top rated is BIG LACHIE 9/1 a 3 year old who is normally held up and from stall 4 could get on the rails just behind the leader coming out of stall 3 and then stay on the stronger at the finish.

NR: Big Lachie
