Friday 31st August Claiming Bet !!

On Friday there are two claiming races,both 2 year old claimers, on the turf at Thirsk & on the poly track at Wolverhampton .

Going to concentrate on the 7 furlong two year old claiming stakes at Wolverhampton's evening card .

7.20 WOLVERHAMPTON 7F 2-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES
12 runners declared for 7 furlong two year old claimer on the poly track at Wolverhampton .With Brazilian Clown being early morning non runner the main two contenders look to be Charlie Em and Wordsaplenty .

CHARLIE EM :Shown improved form since stepping up to 7 furlongs ,winning seven furlong handicap at Catterick off mark 66 and then finishing fair second at Newcastle last time .Looks well treated in this claimer and should go well if handling the poly track .

WORDSAPLENTY : Improved form since being fitted with hood ,finishing fair second in 6 furlong handicap at Ffos Las off mark 60 and then winning 7 furlong seller at Catterick last time .

VERDICT : Charlie Em looks the one to beat here after putting in two solid runs in handicap company ,though odds around 6-4 look very short for horse yet to run on poly track .

WORDSAPLENTY receiving 14lb from her main rival looks the each-way value here at around 7-1 .Looked better suited stepping up to 7 furlongs last time when winning seller at Catterick and looks well treated off 8 stone .

Weekly results round / Up

August has been a bit of a struggle with the claiming races with no winners from four bets ,though there has been three thirds, this hasn't been great month with £220 loss heading towards the end of the month .

Going back to last week there was just one bet on Monday in the 2 year old 5 furlong claiming stakes at Thirsk on Dream Vale at 4-1 ,well supported in the market going off the 5-2 clear second favourite,though could only manage third place and with two late non runners in the race making it a seven runner race this ended up being losing bet with £100.00 loss

Always very annoying when you get them late non runners, making it first two for each-way bets,though there is always the option of placing the bets on betfair who pay out on three places on the place market .

Moving on to this week, not great deal happening in the claiming races in the early part of the week ,though I do expect to be back in action on Thursday & Friday.
