Important Message delivered yesterday for Alan winning by six lengths, and our man's final day in the seat this week has selections at Doncaster and Wolverhampton...


"off a mark of 72 today but I still think there is more to come"

20:25 Doncaster - Kerrymerry @ 5.04/1 Exchange

20:25 Doncaster - Kerrymerry @ 5.04/1 Exchange

This penny seems to have dropped with this colt after his maiden win at Lingfield in June of a mark of 55. Since then the three-year-old has been progressive, wining next time out at Lingfield again followed by two decent performances where he finished second in both at Newbury and most recently Hamilton.

Those performances have seen a rapid rise in the ratings and is off a mark of 72 today but I still think there is more to come. He is the only horse in the field that has won over the distance and after being tried over 12 furlongs on his last two starts he is dropped back to 10 today, everything looks in place for him to go in again for Ismail Mohammed.


15:05 Wolverhampton - Acolyte @ 2.35/4 Exchange

Roger Charlton changed the tactics for this horse last time when he made all to win at Kempton last time out, I am assuming the same tactics will be in place today. He is two for two on the polytrack although both wins were at Kempton, I like front runners at Wolverhampton and despite a 6lb rise in the weights, I think Acolyte has the ability to go in again.


16:45 Wolverhampton - Ferryview Place just a mention

I just wanted to mention this selection but unfortunately he isn't a bet for me now. I am a bit disappointed at the price of Ferryview Place this morning, when I was looking at the race last night he was 6/1 which made much more appeal than the 9/2 available now.

The gelding has taken a drop in class and distance today and I think both will be in his favour. He has won twice at Wolverhampton this year and on both occasions it was at this level and over this trip so at 6/1 I thought he was a solid EW selection on the Sportsbook, but with currently 12 runners and priced at 9/2 he isn't for me, but he should go well.
