Morning everyone. A really nice and quiet few days and not too much to report. The racing today see’s the turn in the tide really as we start to head towards the jumps season. I have managed to find a couple on the card tonight though at Wolverhampton and it is time to open up the shoulders with these….
ANTON CHIGURGH 7.20 Wolverhampton went firmly into the notebook after a solid effort two runs back at Kempton over a mile. They went absolutely no pace that day and as a hold up horse running over a trip which was a bare minimum these days he did well to get within four lengths. Ran in the Silver Cambridgeshire last week but that just didn’t suit. The son of Oasis Dream’s highest rating was 92 and he gets in here off just 74 so he is undoubtedly well handicapped. This is only his 4th start for Philip McBride and with the extra 141 yards to help back on the all-weather tonight, I think he is an absolute must bet.
5 PTS MAXIMUM BET @ 5/2.
DREAM CHILD 6.20 Wolverhampton will also be backed. Three starts in maidens and all fair efforts without setting the world alight. This gives her an opening mark of 75 which looks very workable. The two horses she was behind at Lingfield last time have both won since and are now rated 92 & 85. She was still green last time and has been given three months break. The yard is going well and her two main rivals here (Modernism & Mazaaher) whilst both capable, are also quirky in their own way. She is 3/1 with StanJames and I think she should be favourite with the prospect of plenty more to come with the yard going well.
2 pts win @ 3/1 with StanJames
LOGANS LAD 8.20 Wolverhampton is the last one of the three and is worth a small investment. Put a line through the Redcar run last time and you have a progressive lightly raced four-year old who seems to thrive on the all-weather. Only 3lbs higher than putting up a career best effort back here a month ago and with very similar conditions again tonight I can see him going very close indeed.
1 pt win @ 7/1 with Ladbrokes
All three of the above carry great chances so I would not put you off places them into multiples if you are looking for the bumper payout!
All the best
