track-bias-diary-v2Michael Bell has a good record with his handicappers on their first start since a gelding operation and his IMMORTAL ROMANCE (stall 5 of 6) can take a step forward in the 7f Handicap at Wolverhampton tonight (8.15). The three-year-old will be suited by the step up from sprint trips and, since 2010, his trainer is 16 from 78 in these conditions (21% strike-rate) for a profit of £505.00 to a £10 level stake at SP (+£735.00 at Betfair SP).

Current favourite Snaffled could be vulnerable in the 6f Handicap at Lingfield this afternoon (3.20), especially if taken of for the lead by Samovar. I prefer the claims of POETIC IMAGINATION, who is having his second start for Archie Watson. HIs trainer hasn’t got the best record with new acquisitions but second-time out they win 11 of their 27 starts (41% strike-rate) for a profit of £301.90 to a tenner at SP (+£352.00 at Betfair SP).


Poetic Imagination – Lingfield 3.20 (2pts win, 5-2 generally)

Immortal Romance – Wolverhampton 8.15 (1pt win, 11-2 Betfred, Bet365, 5-1 generally)
