1:30 Wolverhampton Racing Tips (2nd April)

Wolverhampton racing
The only race of the day for me to work on, I have enough of a negative against both War Whisper and Bosham to mark them both down as possible lays, MIDNIGHTLY 7/4 is my 3rd top rated but is only 3lb off the top spot and for a front runner has the prime draw in stall 1 and that could make up the deficit especially with the booked jockey who has a 30% win rate for this stable and the trainer has a 23% win rate at this course so it looks like they are expecting a big run here looking for a hattrick of wins but there's no value in the price, RAFFLE KING 8/1 has a time recorded on this surface but at Newcastle that would put it top by 1lb but that course is straight while here they go round bend/s so stall 6 isn't perfect for a front runner but if it gets away quickly enough to lead or at least contest the lead then it could be good enough, top rated on c/d times the bottom weighted horse POWERFUL DREAM 8/1 can be held up or track the leaders, it may need a degree of luck from stall 9 but there's 2 fast starters in stalls 6 and 7 so could get a tow across towards the rails and the sit in a nice position to launch a late attack on the leaders if getting a clear run it has to be in the mix, I'm sorry to say I cannot narrow it down to any less than these 3 and I will back all 3 to come out with a profit whichever one wins.
