Alan Thompson is in the tipping chair today and he has two each-way selections from the All Weather card at Wolverhampton...

"He's very well handicapped off a mark of 49 given that he has won off marks of 50, 56,78, 72, 67 and 62"

David Evans charge is running off a low enough mark to win this

This is a competitive Class 6 contest and my eye has been drawn to David Evans' runner Pike Corner Cross at a double figure price to cause a bit of an upset. He has a great record at Wolverhampton, including two wins, and importantly has won over this distance and also over the extended trip which is one furlong longer.

He's very well handicapped off a mark of 49 given that he has won off marks of 50, 56,78, 72, 67 and 62 and I really like his draw in stall five. The stable had a winner with their last runner and I just think in a tight contest he's value to grab a place at least.

Canford Bay and Cam Hardie have the ability to win this

Also worth an each-way bet in the opener at Wolverhampton is the Anthony Brittain trained Canford Bay. Currently rated 79, he's won twice off this mark in the past and both times for today's jockey Cam Hardie, who rides this track as good as anyone riding. Canford Bay has won three times in Class 4 (today's grade) and once at the level above, Class 3, so he has enough ability to win this race.

The six-year-old gelding's record at Wolverhampton reads 5-1-4-2-6-3-3-7-1, effectively placing fives times from nine runs at the track, so we know he's really effective around here. Throw in the fact he's won at this time of year before and you have all the ingredients to run a big race at a lovely each way price.
