2nd November

Just a couple of races today at Wolverhampton.

2:05 Wolverhampton
Mureb will be a short price to continue the fine form of Godolphin although at about even money there isn't too much meat on the bone. Tesslam will run a big race and a decent type for an each way double. Arguam is the most interesting juvenile in this race as Swinburn's two-year-old was quite well fancied last time but ran no race. Perhaps today will see an improved performance although the price on the exchanges doesn't inspire much hope and the huge price (touching 70/1) may well be a sign of limited ability. It will be interesting to see what this son of Poppy Carew can achieve on this third start.

4:20 Wolverhampton
Excellent Thought is a consistent sort but seems to be struggling to gain a first win. She is there to be shot at once again and I wouldn't fancy betting at short odds. Youcanalwaysdream has been been supported for this and could run a decent race today after showing good speed on debut before tiring badly late on. Ceratinly has something to find with the favourite but it is certainly encouraging to see the money today although Ryan hasn't achieved much this year with his juveniles. A wide draw is far from ideal. Bronze Beau will probably try to lead all the way and this turning track will certainly help his efforts. A juvenile that doesn't seem to have that winning edge and too often placed at best. Mosa Mine is a more likely type if fancied in the betting. A difficult race too assess and certainly a watching race for me.

A watching day.
