Quiet start to the week with just the one bet so far ,two cards on Thursday at Wolverhampton & Kempton not great deal of interest at Wolverhampton, though there look very interesting 5 furlong claiming stakes at Kemptons evening meeting.
5F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 KEMPTON 4.00
GOLDEN SHINE :Failed to stay 7 furlongs last time at Wolverhampton when finishing disappointing 9th,though the return to 5 furlongs is sure to suit here,ran fair third in claimer at Wolverhampton over 5 furlongs behind Lady Prodee only beaten neck & head after racing wide.Looks well weighted in this claimer off 8 stone and should go well.
VERDICT : JOHNNY HANCOCKS & GOLDEN SHINE are closely matched on there running earlier last month at Wolverhampton when only head separated the pair.GOLDEN SHINE is 2lb better off here and that may be enough to turn the tables and at the prices looks the better value bet.
