Follow The Money: Take a Position at Wolverhampton

Two bets at Wolverhampton today - will we show profit?

Today's Follow The Money recommended bets run at the meetings at Stratford and Wolverhampton...

Back over a mile and dropped a few pounds in the weights Position returned to form last time out...

We start at Wolverhampton where Angels Calling's odds continue to contract in the six-furlong Claiming Stakes at 14:50, now trading at 6.25/1 having been available at 15.5. This two-year-old didn't show much when making her debut on heavy ground over today's trip back in June but stepped up on that effort when encountering quicker conditions at Thirsk earlier this month. She was badly hampered that day, with her rider losing an iron in the process, before staying on well to finish fourth. The money indicates she's ready to deliver a further improved effort.

Next we go to Stratford where Premier Dane is proving easy to back in the two and a half mile Handicap Chase at 15:40, drifting out to 3.412/5 from a low of 2.8615/8. The gelding returned from an absence of more than 14 months to win over hurdles on his first run for David Pipe a month ago and has been a useful sort over the smaller obstacles at his peak. However, he returns to fences today, runs off a higher mark and faces some rivals who are likely to have improvement in them. With trainer David Pipe without a winner in the past three weeks, the punters seem happy to take him on.

It's back to the polytrack at Wolverhampton for our final selection where Position has been strongly supported to take the one-mile Handicap at 17:20, currently on offer at 3.185/40 from 6.611/2. This Sir Mark Prescott-trained runner performed well when winning over today's distance at Southwell and was narrowly denied at Kempton last season but has struggled this term over longer trips. However, back in distance and dropped a few pounds in the weights he returned to form last time out, beaten half a length on Southwell's fibresand. With that run coming just five days ago the move indicates he can quickly make amends.
