Affair – 7.30 Wolverhampton (12/1 – 888bet + bet365)
Wolverhampton’s evening fixture holds today’s each-way bet, with an experienced runner possessing some cracking value at 12/1.
Hughie Morrison’s Affair was not on song on her latest outing at Southwell in January, but she holds some useful form on both the all-weather and turf over the last year.
The seven-year-old produced a bold front-running effort over this distance in Bath in August and it would have paid off if she wasn’t caught by the unexposed Russian Rumour late on.
After finishing a respectable third at Chelmsford three weeks later, her form does appear to drop off but Morrison’s mare has run better than suggested.
With a price of 12/1, Affair could prove be great value in this contest at Wolverhampton.
