Claiming Stakes Analysis !!!

On Wednesday we have three claiming races ,though again all three races have small fields.At Lingfield the first race on the card is 2 mile claiming stakes at 12.30 .

LA ESTELLA made hard work winning 12 furlong claimer last time at Wolverhampton ,though only has Right Stuff to beat in another weak looking claimer and should make this win number 24.

Moving on to the 7 furlong classified claiming stakes at 1.30 ,with two non runners, just four runners go to post.

Course specialist PAPHOS was good winner over course & distance on Monday at Lingfield in class 5 handicap (Making All) ,should take some catching here and can record his seventh win at the track.

At Kempton we have 1 mile claiming stakes at 4.45 ,with just six runners declared . HURRICANE SPIRIT won in good style last time in 1 mile claimer at Lingfield ,beating One Way Or Another ,that form has been boosted with that horse winning his next two starts .Six time course winner APRIL FOOL goes well here at Kempton and looks the main danger ,especially if he gets an easy lead ,though will need to bounce back after some below par efforts recently.

With the small fields ,there doesn't look lot value in claiming races today ,just watching brief and hopefully we will be back in action on Friday .

Monday 14th January Claiming Bet

We are finally back in action after quiet spell recently .On Monday we have 7 furlong claiming stakes on poly track at Wolverhampton 

10 runners declared for 7 furlong claimer at Wolverhampton. On official handicap ratings the three main contenders are Rakaan , Frequency & Polar Kite .

RAKAAN :Won 1 mile class 3 handicap at Wolverhampton in November off mark 85 ,been running consistently since in handicap company .Looks well treated at the weights and should go well dropping down in grade .

FREQUENCY : Good record in claiming company 5 out 10 ,Also goes well here at Wolverhampton with three wins at the track .Won 6 furlong handicap at Ayr in August of mark 74 ,not been in greatest form since,though has plenty winning form in this grade . 

POLAR KITE : Won 7 furlong claimer at Kempton last month ,had Frequency five lenghs back in third .though looked disappointing last time in handicap over Course & Distance .Will be suited returning to claiming company .

VERDICT: Rakaan dropping down in grade has obvious claims in this claimer , though has been beaten both times when favourite in claiming company .Odds around 8-11 represent no real value and looks worth taking on at short price .

 FREQUENCY at big price looks fair each-way value at around 10-1,has good record in claiming company 5 out 10 and goes particularly well here at  Wolverhampton .Joe Fanning back on board also looks positive jockey booking having won on horse 4 times .

Of the others Polar Kite should also be thereabouts having won claimer at Kempton last month ,though will need bounce back after poor run last time.
