Bets Of The Day: Traveller can end the long wait for a victory

All-weather racing Wolverhampton and Lingfield
Can Wind Storm and Traveller get their heads in front on Wednesday?

Alan Dudman went close again with another second at a decent price yesterday with Exchequer, and he is sticking to the all-weather for Wednesday's two bets...

"Traveller has been running well without winning, but he's dropped down to his lowest-ever mark of 59 here so is clearly worth an interest."

Back Traveller @ 9.08/1 in the 16:45 at Wolverhampton

Wind can storm home with a drop in class for Burke

15:20 Lingfield - Back Wind Storm @ 6.05/1

A return to "Leafy" could suit Wind Storm and the filly can take advantage of a drop in class for this 0-60 maiden handicap. Even with the "seconditis" spell at the moment for the column, I'll stick with the Win only market here.

Last time out she ran with credit at Wolverhampton in a stronger race. She held every chance but couldn't quite match the burst of acceleration shown by the winner that day.

She has dropped down to a fair mark of 60 and could travel a bit better than that rating. Indeed, she showed she handled Lingfield when starting out life with trainer Ralph Beckett.

Now with Karl Burke, this looks a good opening.

Traveller can be a great success for Brittain

16:45 Wolverhampton - Back Traveller @ 9.08/1

I was with trainer Anthony Brittain and Kieran Scholfield on Monday with Grey Destiny, and he went very close. I am hoping they can go one better and strike with Traveller in the 16:45 apprentice handicap.

Scholfield is on board with his 3lb claim, and he's got plenty of experience with over 200 rides. He scored for the yard with Klopp at Newcastle recently too. He nearly got one on Monday.

Traveller has been running well without winning, but he's dropped down to his lowest-ever mark of 59 here so is clearly worth an interest.

He steps up in trip to 1m2 but he has shaped as if he is worth a try over this distance. He certainly did in his younger days with Charlie Hills, but also gave the impression at Newcastle back in November when he stayed on late.
