THIS WEEKS ALL WEATHER FIXTURES - 26th March KEMPTON PARK- 27th March WOLVERHAMPTON- 29th March WOLVERHAMPTON - 30th March LINGFIELD PARK, KEMPTON PARK & SOUTHWELL - 31st March WOLVERHAMPTON & CHELMSFORD CITY - 1ST aPRIL LINGFIELD PARK & WOLVERHAMPTON - 2nd April KEMPTON PARK -

Wolverhampton might be slow but I wouldn't trust Southwell form here!

It was one up, one down for subscribers on last night's Wolverhampton card and the one up was from the tightest of finishes as Hagree stayed with our selection ARCHIBALD THORBURN (7-4) all the way to line with only a short head separating them. The pair pulling 4 lengths clear of the remainder.

I am not disappointed to have only the one subscriber selection going for us today as each meeting at Wolverhampton gives us a better understanding of the form lines coming into and out of the meetings. ATR did a little piece in their evening coverage where the statement was made that jockeys believe the course is riding like Southwell! I have done a little research on this and from the small snap-shot we have at present I would suggest this is less than conclusive.

 Times returned halved, between standard and how slow the course rode on Thursday as they did last week. Assuming Fergus Cameron adopts the same attitude I would expect times to be revert back to Thursday slow conditions with a deep harrow before racing today.

If there was anything to gleam from results since the surface work, it would be the prevalence of good 'Sire' stats. As I learnt from my dabbling yesterday, it is probably wiser not to pick one over another having had a little tickle on On The Cusp only for the identically rated Dancing Cosmos to win at 25-1 :(


Good luck today with all your selections
