TWO RUNNERS AT WOLVERHAMPTON ON WEDNESDAY.
We send two down to Wolverhampton on Wednesday afternoon, with both contesting the extended two miles 0-55 handicap for Amateur Jockeys.
The Resdev Way visits Dunstal Park for only the third time in his 73 race career, and for the first time since April 2018. The evidence of those two previous runs suggest that he will act on this tapeta surface, having run well on both previous attempts. In his younger days The Resdev Way achieved an official high mark of 81 on the All Weather, but it is now over three years since he has won on an artificial surface, although he has won three times since on turf from marks in the low 60's. The trip will not be a problem, and Becky Smith will take the ride.
Burnage Boy signalled what appeared to be a return to form at Redcar 23 days ago, when staying on at the finish over two miles, showing his first form at the trip. He had, with the exception of a two miles run in heavy ground at Catterick last October, been doing all of his racing between nine to 11 furlongs, and the step up in trip appeared to bring about an improved showing, but with only four and a half lengths covering the first seven home, it might be wise to treat the form with caution. He will be ridden by Patrick Millman for the first time, and the race takes place at 1.15.pm.
