Oddschecker tips for every race at Wolverhampton on Saturday.
BIG BAD LOL has been running well in defeat in recent months and his form figures at this track read 123. Based on that evidence, Ed Walker's gelding gets the nod in a race that appears to be wide open. Citta D'Oro has to be respected following his win here last month, while Classic Charm and Kilbaha Lady complete the shortlist. Prediction : 1st Big Bad Lol 2nd Citta DOro 3rd Classic Charm
SALUTE THE SOLDIER only found a useful rival narrowly too good in his bid for a hat-trick over C&D when last seen in December. A 2lb rise for that effort is fair and he has proven that he can win following a break in the past. Tough Remedy has already had a productive spell on the all-weather this winter and he could put in another good effort. Others to consider are Ballard Down, Executive Force and Gurkha Friend. Prediction : 1st Salute The Soldier 2nd Tough Remedy 3rd Executive Force
ALBERT FINNEY landed a novice contest over the extended mile here in January and after finishing an outpaced third over 1m2f at Chelmsford last time out, John Gosden's charge appears ready for this step up in trip. Paradise Boy was headed on the post over the extended 1m1f here last month and could appreciate the return to further, given he'd previously landed a 1m4f maiden at Lingfield. Thunderoad, beaten by a neck in a C&D handicap last month, looks best of the rest.Prediction : 1st Albert Finney 2nd Paradise Boy 3rd Thunderoad
TIGER EYE is improving between runs and backed up her C&D novice victory in January when defying a penalty over 7f again at Lingfield recently. James Fanshawe's four-year-old is expected to show up well off an opening mark of 83 on her handicap bow. Toy Theatre won stylishly in this grade over 1m from Ventura Blues at Newcastle and could be putting in her best work in at the finish as she bids to shake off a 7lb rise. Prediction : 1st Tiger Eye 2nd Toy Theatre 3rd Ventura Blues
TOUR DE PARIS represents connections who have done very well with horses over marathon trips on the Flat in recent years, and the four-year-old looks to be improving with age for Alan King. A 10-1 winner over course and distance last month, he could kick on after that first career win and defy a 3lb rise. Singing The Blues is interesting on a hat-trick, while Rail Dancer and Enmeshing are also worth mentioning.Prediction : 1st Tour de Paris 2nd Singing The Blues 3rd Rail Dancer
WISE WORDS caught the eye when second on debut at Newcastle last month, shaping as though she would learn plenty from the experience. The three-year-old is related to plenty of winners and can defy a poor draw in stall 12 to score. Phosphor had a bit of a reputation last year for Martyn Meade and could take a step forward on seasonal reappearance, while Global Prospector cost 800,000gns as a two-year-old last April and warrants a market check.Prediction : 1st Wise Words 2nd Phosphor 3rd Global Prospector
