We start our day’s previews with the punatilmate race from Southwell a twenty furlong handicap hurdle.
Only a couple here have some form to note in this handicap affair today with Riddlestown being the more noticeable of the lot; he is also the only course and distance winner in the field where he won from a five pound higher mark he’s also finished second a fortnight ago from a ten pound higher mark so off his current mark he should be hard to beat here today if continuing this progression.
Pennies And Pounds looks the obvious danger having won at Bangor back in April and even though he’s not gone of to reproduce since returning back to this trip should help and give him every opportunity to go close.
Coogan George has been competing in better company than this and may of needed the run last time out but he’s not really shown a great deal in novice company but may do better now handicapping.
Lined With Silver is another making his handicap debut but the grey looks harshly treated on his first outing so maybe one to keep an eye on if doing well here today.
We head to the all-weather for our second preview a thirteen furlong handicap.
The market suggests this is a two horse race between Cahill and El Campeon, they both won over course and distance on their latest outings with the former winning by nineteen lengths; he’s been raised twelve pounds for that victory but should be in the mix once again and may be worth sticking with. The latter may not of won by such a convincing mark but is still heavily penalised.
Grand Meister was just out paced here on his latest outing so the slight rise in trip should just be what he needs to get 8 new closer today but may find another too good.
Noguchi isn’t getting any younger but dismiss him at your peril when he runs on this surface; he’s still got an amazing turn of foot for his age and could be the value here and could go well over this distance once again.
Topaling completed a hat-trick over course and distance this time last year but is currentlyvs till looking a little to high in the weights but could also go close if producing his best.
We stay at Wolverhampton for our final preview a one mile handicap.
Cascadia was a beaten favourite last time out but seemed to weaken with three furlongs to go; he steps down to this distance for the first time since last year but he may need that to get back to winning ways.
Malik went close on the turf at Bath last time out and is two pounds lower than his last run here where he finished ten lengths behind the winner so may be one to oppose.
Andrew Balding’s yard has been running well around here this season so Berkshire Beautymay be one to note after a long lay off; she may not have a great form on paper but Andrew will have her ready for this and is another to consider.
Duke Of Dunton is still without a win from sixteen starts but he seems to save his best for here and went close from a pound lower mark back in October so could also be a player today.
Stanlow is upped eight pounds for his win at Chepstow back in August and this mark didn’t do him any favours last time out where he finished a long way back but he’s another who seems go save his best for here.
Stanlow (E/W if 9/2+)
