17:30 Wolverhampton The final race of a packed 8 race card is where we’ll find our best selection this afternoon. We’re presented with a horse who has a trainer and jockey combination that have a 100% strike rate when they combine. Joey Haynes and John Butler don’t team up all that often but when they do they seem to be a lethal combination. They’re set to saddle and ride three year old course and distance victor Tiger Lyon. He’s been very disappointing on the turf this season and has shown nothing in his last four runs but a return to this venue is definitely a positive. He seems to act much better on an artificial surface and now comes back to Wolverhampton with 2lbs less weight to carry than when successful here previously. All the evidence points to a big run and hopefully we can capitalise on an improved effort this time around.
With a couple of course and distance winners also set to lineup it’s hard to discount the majority of the field but Secret Potion and Mezyan look the most likely threats to our selection.
TIGER LYON (WIN) – NAP
