Bets Of The Day: Kodiac to be crowned the Princess of Wolverhampton

Will Princess Kodiac score under the floodlights at Wolverhampton?

Wild Storm scored at Windsor yesterday for Alan Dudman, who has another two win bets to unleash for Tuesday...


"The Richard Fahey filly has a handful of juvenile runners in her pedigree, as well as an all-weather winner. I'd expect her to improve significantly, with the exposed favourite Munira Eyes holding an official rating of 78 the obvious form choice."

Back Princess Kodiac @ 6.6011/2 in the 20:10 at Wolverhampton

14:50 Windsor - Back So Mi Dar

Some of the pedigrees on show for this race reads like a glittering star list. John Gosden saddles two - and whilst I'll be backing So Mi Dar, he also runs the 700,000 guineas purchase Al Edga - who might just go off the shorter of the two - which should help the price on the selection.

I'm rather excited about seeing the first UK runner of Dar Re Mi (who Gosden trained) - the brilliant mare who landed the Sheema Classic, Pretty Polly and the Yorkshire Oaks. Her first offspring appeared in France in 2014, and he's proved himself to be rather smart for Andre Fabre. The horse in question is called De Treville, who ran well on debut, and scored on second outing - exactly like his mother.

And the fact she is out of Dar Re Mi - means I can remember the brilliant Rewilding, who had the potential to be a true great.

Her price overnight was around 7.06/1, and I certainly wouldn't worry about the ground. Hopefully this will be a decent race.


20:10 Wolverhampton - Back Princess Kodiac

I was most puzzled with Archaic's drop back in trip here, and he might be worth looking at if you want to back a horse higher in the run. He was badly outpaced over a longer distance at Kempton (7f) - and with a Gallileo dam, he could well trade at a bigger price.

However, I think we'll see a more clued-up Princess Kodiac in this race, after her pleasing introduction on debut at Ripon. The Yorkshire venue is quite a tricky course for a newcomer to handle, and it was a perfectly acceptable first run. Slowly away recently, she was held-up and made a nice bit of progress without being subjected to a hard race.

The winner and second that afternoon at Ripon both had previous experience.

The Richard Fahey filly has a handful of juvenile runners in her pedigree, as well as an all-weather winner. I'd expect her to improve significantly, with the exposed favourite Munira Eyes holding an official rating of 78 the obvious form choice.
