OUR man Thommo has two tips for Tuesday and is napping Home Before Dusk to place up in trip at Wolverhampton.
FIELD EXHIBITION made most of the running to dispose of Sarvi with no fuss over three miles at Musselburgh and is only 4lb higher at Exeter. She takes a significant drop in distance but doesn’t lack speed. Smarty Wild is the obvious threat.
HOME BEFORE DUSK has gone close on a couple of occasions but remains a maiden for Keith Dalgleish. The Carluke handler tries 1m 6f for the first time at Wolverhampton and his gelding’s style of racing suggests this extra stamina test will suit.
He ran on into fourth behind Lopes Dancer at Newcastle and is 4lb lower than on his last visit to Wolverhampton in November when a respectable third to Paul Cole’s Pink Phantom. Cheek-pieces are applied for the first time and I’ll be disappointed if he is not involved in the finish.
