Monday 16th July Claiming Bets

 A busy start to the week with two bets on Monday both on the All Weather at Southwell and this evening at Wolverhampton .

3.15 SOUTHWELL 7 FURLONG 0-75 CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES

Nine runners declared for 7 furlong claiming stakes on the fibresand at Southwell .This looks quite competitive 0-75 classified claimer .The three main contenders look to be Flying Pickets ,Son Of Vida & Bold Marc .

FLYING PICKETS :Three time C/D winner here at Southwell  and also finished runner up three times at the course .Won 7 furlong claimer at Southwell back in March beating One More Romain by short head .Been disappointing on his last three starts ,though will be suited returning to his favorite course.


SON OF VIDA : Dual course winner here at Southwell for Mark Johnston .Changed hands for 6.600 guineas after winning seller back in March .Hasn't shown great deal on his first two starts on the turf for Alan Bailey ,though will be suited returning to the fibresand.


BOLD MARC : Front runner , looked as good as ever when bolting up by 8 lenghs in 1 mile claimer at Southwell in April . Not been at his best on his last two starts in handicap company,Will be suited by this dropping back in grade .


VERDICT : Not much to separate the three main contenders on official handicap ratings.Both Son Of Vida & Flying Pickets go well on this course and have to be respected .


BOLD MARC gets the vote after winning impressively in similar race at southwell back in April and could take some catching if in the same kind of form .Odds around 4-1 look very fair value.

8.00 WOLVERHAMPTON 1MILE 4F 0-60 CLASSIFIED CLAIMER
11 runners declared for 12 furlong 0-60 classified claimer on the poly track at Wolverhampton .This looks very weak claimer the two main contenders are White Deer & Guga


WHITE DEER : Won five times on turf though not won for over year .The last win coming in 14 furlong seller at Catterick last June .Finished fair fourth last time only beaten 2 lenghs over C&D in 0-65 handicap .


GUGA : Four time winner on turf ,the last win coming in May 2011 in 10 furlong handicap at Nottingham.Finished fair fourth on his last two starts in handicap company .Should be thereabouts in weak race.


VERDICT: This looks a very poor claimer with most of the field completely out of form .


WHITE DEER does at least know how to win in this grade and looks the one to beat .After putting in two solid runs at Wolverhampton in handicap company this season.Though not the greatest price doesn't appear to have lot to beat and 5-2 is an acceptable price.
