PEARL ACCLAIM proved a 4-1 gem for Alan yesterday and today he fancies Thresholdofadream to give the bookies nightmares.
The 3-1 shot is one of our man's four picks and feel free to add any of your own.
CAPE GRECO has made good progress from a very low official rating and scored quite comfortably at Lingfield a fortnight ago. With Georgia Dobie taking off 5lb, he is worth an interest in the apprentices’ handicap.
MR RED CLUBS hosed up here two outings ago but could never get competitive next time following a slow start from his wide stall. This seller looks within the old boy’s capabilities.
THRESHOLDOFADREAM can prove a bookmakers’ nightmare at Wolverhampton. Amanda Perrett’s filly drops slightly in grade in the two-mile handicap following a closing second at Lingfield over the same distance 52 days ago.
She had previously stayed on into fourth spot behind Eden Rose in higher grade here over 1m 6f, compromising her chance by breaking slowly. Recent course winner Betancourt could be the one to beat.
TAKE THE HELM (2.10) is an all-weather specialist, dividing his time between Lingfield and Chelmsford City. Brian Meehan would have been pleased enough with Take The Helm’s comeback effort last week, his first start in 240 days, racing very keenly in front until fading in the straight to finish third to Salateen. The six-year-old could take some pegging back with that run under his belt.
