5:20 Wolverhampton (6th October) - Result

A Selling Stakes over 7f 32y. Jimmy The Lollipop has been running creditably of late and the application of the blinkers seems to have perked him up. A dogged front-running performance saw him victorious at this course but over 9f. Ryan's gelding made a bold bid at Ripon in what could well be a fair race, only tiring in the closing stages over one mile. A drop back in trip may taint that natural pace although Makin could well try to dictate if possible. A wide draw is not ideal. However, this looks a drop in class and if able to sit in a handy position he should run to the line.

A fair each way selection.


HCE: ''A seller set at quite a pace by Jimmy The Lollipop who ran out of steam in the closing stages, the draw probably being his undoing. Latte ran on well and just held the challenge of debutante Hilali, who was well backed, losing by a nose. Zammy finished 3rd.''
