Wolverhampton Tip: Dark Alliance

Won two of his last three starts and unlucky last time out. Hampered mid-race but ran a fast closing sectional and big adjusted speed rating for the grade.

Dark Alliance has been excellent since the turn of the year with his record reading 113 and that has coincided with a move to Mark Loughnane’s yard. His new trainer has got to the bottom of the 7-year-old but there is still headroom in his mark because he was rated in the 80s before.

Dark Alliance didn’t get the clearest of runs last time out but he powered home to finish a close third. He ran the fastest closing sectional by 0.27s and earned a good adjusted speed rating of 78. Edward Greatrex has built a good rapport with the horse and the pair can regain the winning thread.
