Wolverhampton Racing Tips: Ippotheos well-in on handicap debut

Wolverhampton
There is all-weather racing at Wolverhampton on Monday evening

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Wolverhampton on Monday.

Wolverhampton Nap - 19:00 - Back Dr Ippotheos

Ippotheos looks another shrewd purchase by the Mick Appleby yard following his success in a novice event over six furlongs at the course nine days ago, showing much improved form and also landing a gamble in the process.

That race was run at a strong gallop and Ippotheos was doing all of his best work at the finish, staying on well under pressure to beat another promising rival.

The timefigure he recorded that day gives the form extra substance and the handicapper may have taken a big chance with his opening mark of 79.

Wolverhampton Next Best - 17:30 - Back Handsome Chap

Handsome Chap made a most promising debut over course and distance last month, beaten only by another newcomer who was much stronger in the betting.

He left the impression he was in much need of the experience, going a bit in snatches but hitting the line strongly once the penny started to drop in the latter stages.

That performance can be marked up further when taking sectionals into account and, given he wasn't at all given a hard time, he looks a sure-fire improver who already sets a good standard in this field.
