Fridays best bets!!

Two flat cards on Friday at Lingfield & Wolverhampton and we have two claiming races .
(1.40 Lingfield 10F Claiming stakes ) & (8.00 Wolverhampton 12F Classified claiming stakes )


1.40 LINGFIELD 10F 3-Y-0 CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 
Five runners go to post for 10F claiming stakes at Lingfield .This looks match between old rivals Clean Bowled & Crowning Star .


CLEAN BOWLED : Looks improved performer since be fitted with the cheek pieces .Winning his last two starts in claiming company beating Crowning Star both times over 1 mile .Looks well treated at the weights and should be difficult to beat.


CROWNING STAR : Won 6F maiden at Lingfield in July ,not won since though has finished second four times .Unproven over this longer trip and has plenty to find with old rival Clean Bowled.


VERDICT : CLEAN BOWLED has to prove himself over this longer trip ,though should take plenty beating in this weak looking claimer .Crowning Star looks the only danger ,though will need to show improvement over this longer trip .Odds around 4-5 make little appeal and no bet race.  


(1) CLEAN BOWLED (2) CROWNING STAR

8.00 WOLVERHAMPTON 12F CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6
Six runners go to post for 12F claimer at Wolverhampton .This looks quite competitive little claimer with the three C&D winners. Kames Park ,Ahlawy & Thundering Home looking the main contenders.


KAMES PARK : Consistent sort and four time winner here at Wolverhampton,won 12F handicap at Lingfield in December off mark 63 ,been placed on his last three starts including over C&D earlier this month .


AHLAWY : Course specialist with 7 wins here at Wolverhampton ,won seller over C&D in December ,ran good second on Monday in seller here at Wolverhampton over 9F behind Red Somerset .Looks well weighted off 8stone 4LB.


THUNDERING HOME :Dual course winner here at Wolverhampton .Won handicap over C&D off mark 61 at the end of December .Slightly disappointing last time at Wolverhampton ,though appeared not to stay the longer trip (1 mile 6F) .Will be suited returning to this shorter trip .


VERDICT : Not much to choose  the three main contenders at these weights .Both Kames Park & Ahlawy should be thereabouts in this claimer .


THUNDERING HOME is preferred now having his ideal conditions (1 mile 4F at Wolverhampton) .Has put in three solid runs over this course and distance .Winning once and finishing second twice . Will also be suited returning to claiming company odds around 11-4 look fair value .


FRIDAY'S BEST BET :
THUNDERING HOME 8.00 WOLVERHAMPTON

Wednesday's Best Bets !!!

Two flat cards on Wednesday with two claiming races (1.45 Lingfield 5F claiming stakes ) and (6.30 Kempton 7F claiming stakes ) 


1.45 LINGFIELD 5F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6
Just five runners go to post for 5 furlong claimer .On official handicap ratings this looks between Drawnfromthepast & Brenin Taran who look very closely matched at these weights .


DRAWNFROMTHEPAST :Back to form winning his last two races at Southwell & Lingfield ,didn't need to be at his best last time when winning 5F seller at Southwell .Better judged on winning 6F claimer at Lingfield last month when beating Hinton Admiral .


BRENIN TARAN :Fair sprinter back in 2009 ,ran good third in 6F class 3 handicap at Lingfield last time (first run for 28 months ) Should go well with this big drop in class .


VERDICT : Very little to choose between Drawnfromthepast & Brenin Taran at these weights . 


DRAWNFROMTHEPAST  is just preferred after winning his last two starts in similar company ,though odds around 11-8 don't make great appeal with Brenin Taran looking big danger .


(1) DRAWNFROMTHEPAST (2) BRENIN TARAN 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


6.30 KEMPTON 7F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6
Six runners declared for 7F claimer at Kempton ,This looks to concern the top three runners Marajaa ,Last Sovereign & Mambo Spirit 


MARAJAA :Been in good form this winter winning twice including winning claimer over C&D in December ,finished fair third last time in 1 mile claimer at Lingfield behind two subsequent winners Munsarim & Red Somerset .Looks well treated at these weights .


LAST SOVEREIGN :Front runner ,dual C&D winner here at Kempton .Won 6F handicap at Pontefract back in August off mark 75 .Finished fair fifth last time in 7F handicap at Kempton behind Ocean Legend off mark 77 .


MAMBO SPIRIT :Three time course winner here at Kempton ,Won 6F seller at Kempton in December .This looks tougher race and has bit to find at these weights ,though does have fair record here at Kempton .


VERDICT : Marajaa is 5LB clear on official handicap ratings ,though has been beaten favourite on his last two starts in claiming company .Has to respected at these weights though odds around 4-6 look very short.


LAST SOVEREIGN has little to find at these weights ,though does have some decent form in  handicap company here st Kempton .Will be suited with this drop in class and could take some pegging back in this small field .Odds around 5-1 look fair value against the short price favourite.


WEDNESDAY'S BEST BET :
LAST SOVEREIGN 6.30 KEMPTON 
(THIRD SP 4-1 LOSS £100.00)
0.50 PTS EACH-WAY @ 5-1 BOYLESPORTS 
BEST PRICE GUARANTEE 


*Odds of 6-1 was available with betfair ,though those odds quickly disappeared and bet will go down at 5-1 best price guarantee which is still available with Boylesports at 2.50 pm

Another Blank Week !!!





Not a great deal to report after another blank week with no suitable betting opportunities in the 
claiming races this week.That makes it three weeks without a bet, with the lack of runners still  a major problem in the claimers.

After getting good start to the year in January,this month has been frustrating with very limited  betting opportunities.Hopefully there will be some bets before the start of the flat turf season in April lol!!!


Looking ahead to next week the best chance of any action looks like being on Wednesday or Friday with two claiming races scheduled for both days.That's hope we will be back in action sometime this week.
