We start our day’s previews on the all-weather with a Class six five furlong handicap.
This looks a wide open affair with a few of these in with a shout. Mossgo won last time out at Lingfield by a neck and has been raised three pounds for this today. Emily Davidson looks slightly better treated after her win at Chelmsford two weeks ago where she stayed on well to make all; she is only upped one pound today and could be dangerous again.
Trending and Red Catcher battled it out on their latest runs with the former just getting the better, both come here today with a slight penalty but the former’s jockey seven pond claim today should make that form stick and can go in again.
Daring Dragon to me looks the one to beat today he’s been competing in a lot better company than this for a while now and he is seven pounds lower than his last win which came around this time last year; the drop in class looks a real positive and is my selection for this today.
Daring Dragon (E/W if 5/1+)
Our second preview is a National Hunt Maiden race over two miles and four furlongs.
Taylor and Hurricane’s Girl are currently the early market favourites but they were both beaten favourites last time out and didn’t perform as expected. The latter looked the more promising out of the two back in October when finishing second at Worcester but was beaten by twenty two lengths when last seen at the end of last month; she may relish this step up in trip today and with the champion jockey on-board must be a positive but there is still too many question marks around her to give her real support today.
The two that stand out to me are Bon Chic and Two Swallows. The former recently came to Dan Skelton’s yard after being bought by The Coral Champions Club after some good recent form on the flat; she was another sent of as favourite on her latest outing and should relish the step up in trip but the team say this is a part of her schooling so it may be worth looking at the latter. Two Swallows beat Hurricane’s Girl by a long way when they last met last month and I can’t see that form being reversed today.
Two Swallows (E/W)
We end our day’s previews back at Wolverhampton with a two mile handicap.
Ginger Fizz has been knocking on the door on her latest two outings and seemed to get closer and closer each time; she has been given a two pound penalty without winning and may of just been pegged back again by the handicapper for this today.
Conserve was tried over the hurdles at the beginning of the year but did finish third when returning back to this surface last time out and can run off that same mark again today.
Par Three is only three pounds higher after winning at Kempton over this distance back in February and is one with place claims for this today.
Sensor hasn’t shown much since coming over to the UK from the US but he may of needed those last two races just to get use to life on the track over here; he looked a very promising sort over in the US and looks one to come good today especially as the handicapper looks to of given a big chance today.
