Wolverhampton Placepot: Tuesday October 29

Matt Gardner heads to Wolverhampton on Tuesday.

Timeform's Matt Gardner tackles the Placepot at Wolverhampton's twilight meeting on Tuesday...

"Knowe Head has been below-par on turf through the summer but has been given a break and can get back on track now returned to his favoured surface..."

16:40 - With just two places on offer and a pair of contenders returning from a lengthy absence, alongside a potential improver, this is a tricky opening leg. The one likely to progress, Interception, looks to be a fairly good starting point as she seeks to go one better than at Leicester earlier this month and we'll also take Godolphin's My Trust, who has a 377-day absence to overcome but makes plenty of appeal on paper and Saeed bin Suroor can ready one first time up.

17:10 - This race seems likely to be run at a decent pace which will suit the Ed Walker-trained You're The Boss, who finally built on his maiden success when second to an impressive winner over C&D last time. A repeat of that form is likely to be good enough to see him go close here, so he goes in as our first banker.

17:40 - Although there are just four runners, this maiden looks competitive with outsider Tortoise the only one that you can put a line through. From a Placepot perspective we can't afford to overlook any of the other three, namely Crystal Lake, Art Obsession and Definite Secret, so we'll stick them all in and move on.

18:10 - Living The Life has been in excellent form of late, interspersing two victories, including one over C&D, with a good effort in defeat and for all that she is 8 lb higher now she seems likely to give it another good shot, so makes plenty of appeal. It's also worth taking a chance on Queen Aggie, who has found life tougher this season but has shown signs of a revival recently and is not one to write off from a sliding mark.

18:40 - Having been frivolous earlier we now need to save lines, starting in this trappy nursery. Tizlove Regardless, May Whi and Earthflight all make some appeal for various reasons but the one to side with is Byron Gala, who didn't run particularly well over C&D last time but is now qualified for handicaps and should go close for trainer Marco Botti.

19:10 - Our final banker of the evening will be Knowe Head, trained by James Unett, who got back on the scoreboard over C&D in December and held his form well on the all-weather after that. He's been below-par on turf through the summer but has been given a break and can get back on track now returned to his favoured surface. 

16:40 - 3, 4
17:10 - 6
17:40 - 1, 2, 3
18:10 - 3, 6
18:40 - 5
19:10 - 3
= 12 lines
