Thursday 2nd January Claiming Stakes Bet !!!

On Thursday we have two All weather cards from Southwell & Wolvehampton.For days main bet we go to Wolverhampton for interesting little 0-75 claiming stakes at 6.20.

9 runners go to post for competitive looking claimer .The three main contenders are George Fenton , Powerful Pierre & Haadeeth .

GEORGE FENTON : Six time course winner at Wolverhampton ,won 7 furlong handicap at Woverhampton last month off mark 74 .Slightly disappointing last time when only fifth behind Powerful Pierre on boxing day over 7 furlongs .Obvious claims dropping into claiming company .

POWERFUL PIERRE : Course specialist winning 7 times at Wolverhampton .Been in great form recently winning 4 of last 6 starts .Won 7 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton last time as normal coming from well off pace.Should go well especially if there's decent pace .

HAADEETH : Dual C&D winner at Wolverhampton ,won 6 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton back in November off mark 65 ,not badly treated at weights,normally goes well here at Wolverhampton, though not the most consistent of performers .

VERDICT : The in form  POWERFUL PIERRE can record his eighth course win at Wolverhampton .Has been in great form recently and had main rival George Fenton  4 lenghs behind last time at Wolverhampton .Goes particularly well for 5LB claimer Jacob Butterfield who has been aboard for last four wins . Odds around 3-1 look fair value .

George Fenton has to be respected with ideal conditions ,though has been bit disappointing on his last two starts and will struggle to reverse form with Powerful Pierre even on 5LB better terms. 

Of the others Haadeeth has each-way claims if reproducing his best form,though will need to bounce back after disappointing run at Lingfield last time .

£50.00 EACH-WAY @ 3-1 BET365*
(WINNERS SP 9-4 PROFIT £180.00 )
