Wolverhampton’s NAP: CAROLINE DALE | 7:30pm Betway Handicap | Dom’s Pick

Despite winning only one of nine starts, David Loughnane’s filly has placed on three occasions in Class 1 company, including a fine third in the 2020 Queen Mary Stakes.

The handicapper continues to reduce her mark and given how she bounced back to form at this track earlier this month, perhaps a rating of 91 is not overwhelming enough to prevent her picking up a gold medal for the second time.

Can Caroline Dale go two places better at Wolverhampton on Thursday evening?

She’s back in trip to five furlongs but her only success came over this trip so that’s no immediate negative.

NB: DELPH CRESCENT | 8:30pm Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap

In an underwhelming contest on paper, it could be best to side with Richard Fahey’s gelding who holds a much stronger record on the all-weather compared to the turf.

He disappointed at Doncaster in September but bounced back to form later that month at Beverley and the consistency to his profile makes him of appeal here.

Connor Murtagh takes a handy 3lb off his back so he’s effectively 12lb lower than his last winning mark at Southwell in February.
