5:45 Wolverhampton Racing Tips (9th December)

WOLVERHAMPTON 5.45
Zapper Cass hasn't run on this surface before but this is a drop in class for it, it might prefer a longer trip but I'm not sure this race will be run to suit it.
Invincible Ridge is my joint top rated and in stall 1 it ought to be able to get a decent position on the rails ready to attack late on and has decent trainer + jockey stats.
Major Crispies hasn't any recent course form and on its Newcastle time, it needs to improve to win this race.
Blazed is in form and has good trainer/jockey stats but I'm of the opinion this horse is better over a shorter trip but there's not too much early pace in this race.
Deeds Not Words my joint 4th top rated and has good jockey/trainers stats and it could get a good early position in the makeup of this race.
Duke Cosimo hasn't any form at this course and would need to improve on its Newcastle best to win here but could make the frame from stall 3.
Trotter not in my top 4 ratings but does like to track the leaders so stall 4, in this race, could be a bit troublesome.
Rapid Ranger is versatile with its racing tactics and could lead from stall 7 if nothing else wants to and being my 3rd top rated could make the frame or more?
Awesome Allan likes to race prominently but stall 5 might not be ideal in this race if the above horse goes across to the rails but does have good jockey stats.
Bondi Beach Boy hasn't been in good form lately and doesn't really get home over 6 furlongs unless it's a slow early pace.
A Sure Welcome is the other joint top rated and won nicely in a 3year old only race last time out and might even be able to improve even more but is out in stall 13.
Mysterious Glance hasn't shown much recently and looks one to need a shorter distance to show its worth but I doubt it will shine here.
Seraphima has a poor 1-38 record and hasn't been in form at all recently, it did record 1 good time when towed along in a fast run race but that now looks a fluke.
SUMMARY: Theres only RAPID RANGER 9/2 in this field who is known to lead and if doing so from stall 7 could squeeze up those housed nearer the rails and it's my 3rd top rated and if getting to the front might be quite hard to pick up and a lot may not get involved in the race, so looking for what else can get involved it might be best to look for something drawn wider or a hold up type and my top 2 fit the bill, A SURE WELCOME 14/1 who likes to track the leaders is in stall 13 but in this race may be able get prominent early and maybe worth an each way wager, INVINCIBLE RIDGE 7/1 is in stall 1 and a hold up type so if getting a clear run along the rails it ought to be staying on strongly at the finish and could then easily stay on to make the frame or better . I honestly cant narrow it down any further and will go with backing all 3 of them to show a profit whichever one does the business.


Rapid Ranger 9/2 1st
A Sure Welcome 14/1 2nd
Invincible 7/1 Unp
