In-form Fantino to reflect well in Mirror

NOT an awful lot to get excited about at Wolverhampton, but Fantino is one of the more interesting offerings on the card in the Mirror Punters Club Handicap.

This will be his third run for Pat Murphy, and it is significant Steve Drowne takes the ride again after his canny winning effort on the six-year-old last time out.

That came over course and distance at the beginning of last month, with the deliberate forcing tactics from the off paying a rich dividend. If Fantino can get an easy lead there is every chance he can follow up.

Holden Eagle has major claims of taking a leading hand in the Horse Racing Free Bets With FreeBetting.co.uk Handicap.

Tony Newcombe’s seven-year-old took an age to break his duck, 24 runs in fact, but he finally got off the mark here last week when battling back to land an apprentice handicap.

A move to Brendan Powell's Upper Lambourn base seems to have been to Brunston's liking and this former smart handicapper is the one to be with in the Rugby Betting With FreeBetting.co.uk Handicap.

Find A Key should also not be too far away in the Bacardi Superior Rum Maiden Hurdle at Ayr.

Trainer Nicky Richards has trodden a very careful path with this five-year-old, who has only been sighted twice over hurdles since winning a Hexham bumper last April.

Find A Key has performed laudably on both occasions, twice finishing second over two miles at this track.

Special Portrait lost little in defeat when last seen and could prove hard to beat in Leicester's Mallard Pawnbrokers Hunters' Chase.

The eight-year-old has been in good form, and will not meet a horse of Cloudy Lane's calibre every day, as he did at Ayr.
