Wolverhampton tips – 1st December
16.05 – Betway Amateur Jockeys’ Handicap – 1m1f
It’s hard to make a strong case for the majority of this field but everything looks to have aligned perfectly for RICHARD R H B, who has plenty of course form and produced a career-best performance to win over course-and-distance eight days ago. He should give another good account of himself despite carrying a penalty.
LUNA MAGIC was second in this race last year off a 2Ib higher mark and, having shaped better than the result suggested in both her latest couple of runs on the turf, she’s probably been targeted at this race again and holds solid each-way credentials.
To round off the trio of selections in the opener is the Richard Fahey-trained HOT TEAM. He hasn’t won since 2018 but has become extremely well-handicapped of late and he’s ran two decent enough races in defeat the last twice to warrant a place on our ticket.
Selections: RICHARD R H B, LUNA MAGIC, HOT TEAM
16.40 – Betway Selling Stakes – 2m
FARAMMAN was beaten a long way on debut for connections last month, but is best judged on his previous form and with the first-time visor applied and the step up in trip likely to prompt improvement, he’s got every chance of winning this poor seller event.
GLORIOUS DANE ran a fair race when last seen on the surface and has shaped well over hurdles twice since. He’s the main danger and the probable winner if the hot favourite fails to fire for some strange reason.
Selections: FARAMMAN, GLORIOUS DANE
17.10 – Betway Handicap – 1m1f
The top-weight SANDRET returned to form when second at Newcastle last month and has only been nudged up 1Ib. Based on his previous form, particularly when fourth from an 11Ib higher mark over course-and-distance, he remains on a handy mark and has to be considered here under Tom Marquand.
I’m also going to nominate two-time course winner, THE MET, who shaped well in a competitive Chelmsford handicap in October when sixth and now down to a career-low mark, he should make a bold bid to remain unbeaten at the track with Richard Kingscote booked to ride.
Selections: SANDRET, THE MET
This looks an ordinary event and it looks an excellent opportunity for James Tate’s filly RIVER CHORUS to bag his first success. She sets the standard based on her three promising outings for connections and from a handy slot in stall two, she’s surely capable of finishing in the frame at the very least being PJ McDonald’s best chance of a winner on the card.
Selections: RIVER CHORUS
Another weak division this evening, and it’s hard to look beyond the favourite HOODWINKER, who has a good chance to open his account and potentially provide Tom Marquand with a double on the card. William Haggas’ filly deserves her position at the top of the market and ought to take plenty of beating.
MYMATEMARMITE has to be respected and is sure to appreciate the step up in trip. She’s shown some promise thus far and although she probably won’t win, she’s more than capable of hitting the frame.
Selections: HOODWINKER, MYMATEMARMITE
A lot of pace is sure to be on show here as many of these like to get on with things, including MOKAMAN who was a fair fourth at Southwell last time and will be tough to catch if in a similar mood.
Clive Cox’s NIGHT NARCISSUS ran well at this course when last seen and can be expected to be in the thick of the action once more with Adam Kirby aboard. She’s open to improvement and looks a big danger on these terms.
LOCKDOWN has demonstrated a fair level of form for his connections and it’s only a matter of time before he gets his head in front. He makes his handicap debut from a workable mark and can’t be discounted for place purposes.
Selections: MOKAMAN, NIGHT NARCISSUS, LOCKDOWN
