Wolverhampton Tip: Babyfact
Seven time-winner on turf but lightly raced on the all-weather. Did too much in front when tackling 6f two starts back and change in tactics and trip will help her chances.
Babyfact has a good strike-rate for a sprint handicapper, winning 7/45 races. Most of these have come at Bath over 5f160y but she is unexposed on the all-weather and the drop in trip should suit here.
Two starts back she finished second at Wolverhampton over 6f but it was a combination of trip and pace that found her out. Franny Norton simply made too much use of her and her finishing speed was 96.7% of her overall speed, indicating a dramatic slowdown in the final 2f.
A drop in trip and more conservative tactics will see her in a better light and in stall 4 she will get a good tow into the race with pace on her inside.
