One flat card on Monday at Wolverhampton with 6 furlong 3 year old claiming race at 2.35
2.35 WOLVERHAMPTON 6F 3-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6:
Just five runners go to post for 6F 3-Y-0 claiming stakes .On official handicap ratings this looks three horse race between Redair , Faraway & One More Roman .
Redair :Won 5F claimer at Lingfield on Friday beating Thorpe Bay ,though that looked very weak race with that rival only rated 58 .Has to be respected at these weights ,though this looks much stronger race and both career wins came over 5 furlongs .
Faraway : Dual C&D winner here at Wolverhampton winning seller & claimer in 2011 and also finished close second behind Le King Beau (5 time claiming winner ) at the end of December ,though has looked disappointing on his last two starts when well beaten in claimer and seller .
One More Roman : Won two races for Stan Moore in December , including winning 7 furlong claimer here at Wolverhampton .Finished second over C&D on his first start for Gay Kellaway earlier this month with Faraway back in third.Looked disappointing last time when finishing last of 5 in handicap at Southwell ,though didn't seem to handle fibresand.
VERDICT : Faraway's looks well treated at these weights and is 8LB better off with One More Roman when beaten 3.5 lengh earlier this month ,though odds around 6-4 look short for horse that was well beaten on his last two starts in similar company.
ONE MORE ROMAN has to bounce back after disappointing run at Southwell last time ,though previously had put in two solid runs at Wolverhampton .Has plenty early speed and could take some catching in this small field .Odds around 9-2 look fair value .
