On Thursday we have two claiming races at Lingfield and Wolverhampton .At Lingfield we have 5 furlong claimer on poly track .Three time course winner Drawnfromthepast will be difficult to beat in this claimer ,though odds around even money make little appeal.
Going concentrate on 7 furlong two year old claimer at Wolverhampton's evening fixture .
6.30 WOLVERHAMPTON 7F 2-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES :
Six runners declared for 7 furlong two year old claimer at Wolverhampton .This looks wide open claimer with the three main contenders being . Hardy Red ,Imperial Spirit & Marmot Bay .
HARDY RED : Won 6 furlong handicap at Ffos Las in September off mark 70.Also ran creditable third at Haydock ,slightly disappointing on his only two starts on poly track ,though looks open to improvement over this longer trip .
IMPERIAL SPIRIT : Maiden after 8 starts , has been placed three times on turf .Been disappointing on last three starts on poly track ,though should be thereabouts if he can reproduce his turf form .
MARMOT BAY : Three time course winner at Wolverhampton over 6 furlongs ,winning two sellers and claimer ,though has been well beaten on her last four starts .Looks well treated off bottom weight ,though hasn't convinced over 7 furlongs in past .
VERDICT : Big question marks about all six runners here .Strictly at the weights HARDY RED faces no easy task off top weight ,though is expected to show plenty improvement over this longer trip and can record his second win of the season .Odds around 11-4 look fair price.
Marmot Bay looks the main danger having finished just in front of Hardy Red last time and has 4LB pull at the weights ,though all her best form has been over 6 furlongs and there has to be question mark over this longer trip
Imperial Spirit looks best of the others on his turf form ,though just hasn't convinced in four starts on poly track .
