4.45 WOLVERHAMPTON 5F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5
8 declared runners for 5 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton.This looks quite decent contest for class 5 race .The four main contenders look to be Red Cape , Drawnfromthepast , Lucky Art & Hinton Admiral .
Red Cape : Has been in good form this winter winning two handicaps at Wolverhampton .Won in good style last time in class 4 handicap off mark 77 over 6 furlongs.Should go well with ideal conditions .
Drawnfromthepast :Useful sprinter on his day won class 3 handicap at Bath in July off mark 89 ,though has looked bit disappointing on his last two starts when beaten in claiming company.
Lucky Art : Speedy front runner won five races in 2011 latest win in 5F claimer at Kempton in October ,been slightly disappointing on his last two starts in handicap company .Will be suited returning to claiming company .
Hinton Admiral : Been good form winning five races in 2011 including 3 claimers ,ran well on his last two starts here at Wolverhampton finishing placed both times in claimer & seller .
VERDICT : Drawnfromthepast is 4LB clear on official handicap ratings ,though there has to be question mark after being beaten on his last three starts in claiming company and did break blood vessel last time at Lingfield .Looks worth taking at around 9-4 mark
RED CAPE : Has to concede weight all round ,though has been in great form here at Wolverhampton and hasn't finished outside the first two on his last four starts at the track .Odds around 7-2 look decent value.
Lucky Art : Has to bounce back after couple disappointing runs in handicaps ,though could take some catching if getting an early lead .Has to be respected returning to claiming company.
HINTON ADMIRAL : Goes well in claiming company winning 5 times from 12 starts ,ran two solid races on his last two starts here at Wolverhampton and looks fair value at 6-1 .
