Wolverhampton: Trusty Rusty

Course and distance record is 112323 with both the wins coming in this grade. Good speed ratings on last two starts including when hampered when looking dangerous last time.

The 7.40 Wolverhampton is a good race for its grade but Trusty Rusty has an outstanding record here. Her record over course and disance is: 112323 and it becomes 11 when limited to class 6 handicaps like today.

Both her runs here in December have been impressive. She finished behind Cherish with a good speed rating and again impressed on the clock when third last time despite taking a hefty bump in the homestraight. I suspect the inteference was worse than it looked, costing valuable momentum.

Stall 9 is tricky but not insourmountable and she looks a solid bet.
