Seeing Red in Wolverhampton's 7:10

Another good evening for subscribers with 2 x 2 point selections going in at 7-2 and 10-3 dampened only marginally by the failure of Malaysian Boleh. 

There is always the odd result that you kick yourself over and Princess Spirit winning at 10-1 was mine. Top rated before adjustment, top rated over C&D (3 runs) and on the same competitive mark (50) and in the same company as previous C&D runs. This is undoubtedly a horse to keep a watchful eye on. The manner of victory, coming from the back of the field with a withering run, was checked by a horse drifting out in the final furlong and still gain the momentum again under Jennifer Ferguson to win going away.
  
Having great respect for Timeforms Neil Munro I was somewhat pessimistic about our first 2 point selection EXCELLENT PUCK after it was flagged up in his in-running podcast as un-genuine (or words to that effect) so was pleased to see it wear down its rivals in this fashion.

There were several performances of note last night beyond that of Princess Spirit. Although my eyes were fixed on our second 2 point selection HALLINGS TREASURE winning in the 7:40 it was hard to ignore The Welsh Wizard pulling the arms out of the sockets of Mr Barzalona for the vast part of the race while still managing to finish a creditable 3rd. Looks like a winner in the waiting over 10f!

POMPEIA from yesterdays write-up ran creditability and may strip fitter for the run and the ultra consistent Autun was there to pick up the pieces in the 8:40. I am sure that Lady Cecil will be pleased that he has finally got his head in front over middle distances.

1 point selection MALAYSIAN BOLEH clipped heels shortly after the start, was hampered coming in to the final furlong, not something you can afford to do over 6f, but still finished like an express train. I would suggest ignoring this run for future reference.

It must be 7f night at Wolverhampton this evening with 5 of 8 races contested over the 7f 32 yds distance with two division Class 4 races taking centre stage. As we have subscriber selection in Div II, I have skimmed through Div I (sorry short on time today) and picked up on CAPO ROSSO who won its last Class 4 race of a mark of 82 and has since, predominately raced in Class 2. This is its best trip and now on a mark of 85 should make it competitive at what appears a generous 12-1. Ready is a real danger to the selection. Also a 3yo and has recorded the best C&D in the field. My reservation is that when being caught close home over C&D that the race was the measure of it. There is no doubt that the jolly Horsted Keynes will have come on from its two runs as a 2yo but winning a Class 5 Maiden over this trip as a 2yo and being un-raced as a 3yo until September cast a cloud and I would rather lay than play it at 6-4.

Good Luck, and as Neil Munro says 'Keep Well'!
