Very quiet week so far, and only the Two flat cards on Thursday, Newbury and Wolverhampton ,just going concentrate on the one race today at Wolverhampton's evening card 1 mile 4f claiming stakes.
1 MILE 4 FURLONG CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 8.10
TALENTI;Won fair seller over extended 1 mile 3 furlongs at Windsor in August beating Timocracy by 2.5 lenghs ,that looks quite decent form at this level,(Timocracy having won his previous 6 races).Ran good third last time at Ascot in 1 mile 4 furlong class 4 handicap of mark of 70,should go well dropping back into class 6 company.
DANGER:PAKTOLOS looks the big danger,on BHA handicap figures has quite bit in hand of this field rated 13lb clear ,ran good second in claimer at York in July ,though was very disappointing at Chester last time finishing 12th of 13, beaten 25 lenghs.
VERDICT :Strictly on the figures PAKTOLOS is the one to beat here ,though hasn't really shown much since winning handicap here back in January,and was very disappointing last time at Chester. TALENTI looks a more consistent type, and ran well on his last two starts.3-1 looks fair value.
