Race-By-Race tips for a loaded Wolverhampton card on Friday

Wolverhampton Racecourse

Although the focus is rightly on a weekend of incredible racing action, including both Epsom classics and the Eclipse, there is plenty of racing to be had on Friday.

Wolverhampton host an eight-race card and although it’s not quite the heights that Epsom will produce on Saturday, it still has plenty of competitive races to get stuck into.

Race by Race Selections

5.00  Al Salt at 1/3

It’s not very creative, but it’s impossible to oppose him for win purposes. He was a gutsy winner on his second start and pulled ten lengths clear with a horse who has since bolted up by twenty lengths at Newcastle.

5.30 – Fandabidozi at 11/4

A son of Mastercraftsman and a brother to seven-furlong Group 3 winner Dessertoflife, he’s also a half-brother to several winners, including at two. He makes his debut for a yard who tends to have their juveniles very forward for their debut and a big run can be expected.

6.00 – Gavi Di Gavi at 5/1

Having his first start of 2020 when a good second at Kempton behind a runaway winner. His mark has been left unchanged and further progress can be expected given he’s still lightly-raced, especially with race fitness under his belt.

6.30 – Rocketeer at 7/1

Mike Murphy’s charge has the blinkers on for the first time after a pair of disappointing efforts in June. He returns to Wolverhampton for the first time since winning over course and distance in March off just two pounds lower, however, and if the headgear has a positive effect, along with the return to Wolves, a big run has to be expected.

7.00 – Kath’s Lustre at 10/1

A winner at Chelmsford two starts ago, a drop to five furlongs likely counted against her when flashing home at Lingfield off three pounds lower. She remains on a fair rating on past form and a return to six furlongs is an obvious plus. She’s drawn well enough to attack from the outset and with Tyler Heard’s seven-pound claim in mind, she’s got very strong claims.

7.30 – One One Seven at 4/1

Built on a fair return at Beverley when finishing fourth over course and distance two weeks ago. He’s now two pounds lower and finds himself in an easier class of race. The fact he was sent off favourite for his most recent outing, is certainly a positive too.

8.00 – Solar Park at 9/2

Solar Park

A winner over course and distance three starts ago, he’s gone close on two starts since, including at Lingfield last time where he wasn’t beaten far in a higher grade. Dropped in class for today’s assignment, with Luke Morris still in the plate, a big run has to be expected with the yard going well in recent weeks.

8.30 – Galata Bridge at 9/4

A winning handicap debut beckons for this three-year-old, who made a very promising return when second at Newbury over ten furlongs. His opening mark looks more than fair and stepping up to this trip should eke out plenty more. The yard’s runners are flying and he’s got a huge chance if taking another step forward.
