Bets Of The Day: Boom The Groom well treated for Wolverhampton success

Wolverhampton all-weather racing
Boom The Groom is well drawn at Wolverhampton on Sunday

Both of Alan Dudman's selections won yesterday at advised prices of 9.6017/2 and 6.05/1. His two bets for Sunday run at Ayr and Wolverhampton...

"From 79, he is 10lb lower than last winter. He was good enough to win a 0-105 over CD last February, and this is much easier."

Back Boom The Groom @ 5.04/1 in the 15:10 at Wolverhampton

Keep Talkofgold onside with ground and trip to suit

15:00 Ayr - Back Talkofgold @ 7.26/1

I backed Martin Todhunter's Talkofgold on her last run at Kelso when she finished second, and I am happy to give her another chance. I thought she looked a little overpriced last night on the Exchange at 7.26/1.

The runner-up effort at Kelso was over a similar sort of distance to what she'll face this afternoon, but that was a slightly stronger grade, and she's dropping down to 0-115 class here.

I think she's best leading, and she has shown that winning at Ayr as a hurdler in the past. Even though she can take a bit of driving and stoking up, she is by Gold Well, and stamina and heavy conditions are her two key attributes.

Danny Cook starred for us yesterday with Vintage Clouds at Haydock, and he looks the ideal partner for the selection from a mark of 108.

Well treated Boom has ideal set-up at Wolves

15:10 Wolverhampton - Back Boom The Groom @ 5.04/1

My second bet of the day runs at Wolverhampton in the feature sprint, and it looks a good opportunity for Tony Carroll's Boom The Groom to return to winning ways.

He put up a decent show last time at Lingfield over 5f from the front, but he's happiest around Wolverhampton.

The veteran sprinter has the best draw for his pace-setting tactics, and with him being so well-handicapped on his form of 12 months ago, he rates a fairly solid bet.

From 79, he is 10lb lower than last winter. He was good enough to win a 0-105 over CD last February, and this is much easier.
