2:50 Wolverhampton Racing Tips (16th August)

Horse racing tips
WOLVERHAMPTON 2.50 

Bellevarde-- looks very much as though further would suit it better, maybe even more than 6 furlongs so I would look to lay it here. Dazacam-- hasn't been at its best recently and its best from 2016 wouldn't see it win here so another I am looking to lay. Glamorous Rocket-- looks the most likely leader and won last time out when allowed to set its own relatively slow pace, if pushed early it may falter. Powerful Dream-- is my 2nd top rated horse and has the stall 1 draw but may find the leader cutting it up from stall 2 and may then need some luck to get a clear run. FLYING FOXY 13/2 is my top rated and likes to track the leaders so it should ensure there's a fast enough early pace and the trainer has a good 19% win rate here and therefore my selection. La Fortuna-- has only recorded slow times over this c/d and races as though further is needed to see its best form so another I may lay. Global Rose looks as though further would suit it better and maybe also a slower surface and if it wasn't a 3-year-old I would be looking to lay it. 

Flying Foxy 13/2 3rd


BEVERLEY 3.30 

There are 16 runners with just a couple of known front-running sorts and both are drawn high in stalls 11 and 13, and COMPTON RIVER 10/1 from stall 13 is my 2nd top rated and could prove hard to catch if getting to the lead and the trainer has a good, 26%, win rate here but I do have one horse *SEAMSTER 8/1 rated higher and this ones trainer also has a good 26% win rate here but it moves up to 35% when looking solely at the older horses and to cover both angles I will go with backing both horses but will admit my stakes will not be at full power.

* NR
Compton River 12/1 Unp
