1:45 Wolverhampton (7th July)

A restricted auction for colts and filles over this extended 7f.

With a relatively cheap field of horses form is king in a race of this type.

Mister Angry ran quite well on debut, although it is slightly difficult to assess the form. Lutine Bell was well backed to beat Johnston's colt that day but didn't have a clue what was happening and was very inexperienced. It will be interesting to see whether there is money for her today, especially with Sanders in the saddle. Sir Mark Prescott has good statistics for his juvenile priced 13/2 & less on their second start so that would be interest. However, on balance you would have to consider Mister Angry will run a big race.

Newton Circus will appreciate this step up to 7f after ruining his chances at Salisbury by hanging in the closing stages. Hannon does well on the all-weather tracks and this juvenile may well be backed, which is never a bad sign for this stable.

An outsider with a hope may be Creevy, trained by Sylvester Kirk. This filly has been entred for a stakes race and her dam has bred some fair sorts in her time. The trainer does well on the all-weather and can often find a surprise winner on their second start.

On paper this doesn't look the strongest of race and Mr Angry will take some beating.

A watching race.

Race review: 'A good win for Mr Angry who upheld the form with Lutine Bell who seemed to have a chance coming round the bend. Ed McMahon's Forshour ran on to snatch a place at decent odds while Llandovery took third place.'
