Best bet for the horse racing at Wolverhampton Friday 24th January
No luck out in Dubai at Meydan on Thursday, my two tips were 3rd and 2nd! I am having a go a lot nearer to home on Friday.
At 6.15 up at Dunstall Park Wolverhampton on the Tapeta we have the 1m½f Ladbrokes "Play 1-2-Free" On Football Novice Stakes. Trained for Godolphin by John Gosden Pitchers Point is by Medaglia d'Oro and was an $800,000 yearling purchase. He is a half-brother to US 8.5f turf winner Hungry Kitten his dam Hungry Island being a US 1m/1m1f Grade 2 turf winner. He was third on his belated racecourse debut at Newcastle over 1m earlier this month keeping on at the same pace. The colt will have learnt for the experience and is expected to get off the mark here. Bet365 were first up (only ones as I write) and were offering 13-8.
