Timeform pick out three bets from Wolverhampton on Friday.


Scrafton - 18:15 Wolverhampton

The Irish raider Asian Wing is respected, however fellow top weight SCRAFTON did well to overcome a positional bias under Aled Beech over C&D last week, and given he escapes a penalty for that, ought to take plenty of stopping. It's encouraging that he was able to win despite his trainer's horses generally being out of form. Fellow course winner Dream Serenade is penalised for her recent success and has a little to prove dropped back in trip.

Dandilion - 18:45 Wolverhampton

DANDILION is still a maiden after five starts but she should arguably have won both her handicap starts over this C&D in the last month or so (caught too far back last time), and is chanced to gain compensation from an unchanged mark. She recorded a good closing sectional and a repeat of that should be enough. Last week's ready C&D winner Roaring Rory has to command respect under a penalty, while It Must Be Faith produced one of his better efforts when second to Spirit of Wedza here last time.

Gilgamesh - 19:15 Wolverhampton

There isn't much between the six runners on Timeform weight-adjusted ratings, however GILGAMESH looked an above-average maiden winner at Nottingham in the summer and an opening mark of 79 could well underestimate him. George Scott's runner is bred to appreciate the step back up in trip here and he is preferred to Letmestopyouthere and Tailor's Row as a result. The latter disappointed at Kempton last time but had previously been in good nick.
