Wolverhampton races tips, racecard, declarations and preview for the meeting live on ITV and Sky Sports Racing this Saturday, March 9

March 8, 2019

We've all got all you need to know about the big meeting right here.

Race 1 – 1.30 Betway Live Casino Claiming Stakes

A low-key start to the card in which CAPTAIN LARS gets the nod.

Archie Watson's 10-year-old is a force to be reckoned with in these contests and he is the one to beat on these terms.

Drakefell has ability but has been hit and miss of late. He is still the main danger ahead of It Must Be Faith.

VERDICT – 1. Captain Lars 2. Drakefell 3. It Must Be Faith

Race 2 – 2.05 sunracing.co.uk Lincoln Trial Handicap

Plenty in with chances but the one who appeals most is SILVER QUARTZ.

The Archie Watson-trained four-year-old had some smart form on turf last year and ran a cracker over C&D after a gelding op last month.

He looks up to winning off this mark and can land the spoils at the chief expense of the smart Victory Bond.

Pinnata and Third Time Lucky are solid each-way players.

VERDICT – 1. Silver Quartz 2. Victory Bond 3. Pinnata

Race 3 – 2.40 Follow Sun Racing On Twitter Novice Stakes

HARBOUR BREEZE was third in a good maiden at Newmarket when last sighted.

He returns from a lay-off but appeals as the type to improve this season.

Debut winner Masked Identity is feared most ahead of Sarasota.

VERDICT – 1. Harbour Breeze 2. Masked Identity 3. Sarasota

Race 4 – 3.15 sunracing.co.uk Lady Wulfruna Stakes (Listed)

OH THIS IS US bounced back to winning ways over 1m at Lingfield last time out.

The return to 7f is no issue and he is the class horse in the race.

This won't be a cakewalk, though. Keystroke has loads of talent and won a hot race at Kempton last time.

Documenting won doing handstands over C&D last month and is respected up in class, while the likes of Island Of Life, Cardsharp and Arcanada add further depth to a cracking race.

VERDICT – 1. Oh This Is Us 2. Keystroke 3. Documenting

Race 5 – 3.50 Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Handicap

The promising DAHAWI has looked good in his first two starts.

He was well-backed and won easily at Kempton and he could be well-treated off a mark of 80.

Bay Of Naples would be a big danger if let loose on the lead, while Nubough is not without a chance.

VERDICT – 1. Dahawi 2. Bay Of Naples 3. Nubough

Race 6 – 4.25 Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap

This is wide-open, with CORINTHIA KNIGHT the tentative choice.

The speedster took a step back in the right direction last time and would be too good for these if anywhere near his best.

That is a big 'if', though, and it would be no surprise to see Alsvinder or Merhoob come home in front.

VERDICT – 1. Corinthia Knight 2. Alsvinder 3. Merhoob

Race 7 – 5.00 Betway Best For Cheltenham Festival Offers Handicap

THIS GIRL has been holding her form well at this venue over the winter.

She ran well behind a useful filly last time and could take plenty of beating now eased in class and fitted with cheekpieces.

Dommersen and Battalion are the pick of the opposition.

VERDICT – 1. This Girl 2. Dommersen 3. Battalion
