Marco Botti has his team in fine form and his CRAZY CHIC looks worth an interest when he appears at Wolverhampton this evening.

The four-year-old has not been seen out since finishing a disappointing eighth at Windsor in October, but he is best judged on his previous two runs. First time out he was a ready winner of a Doncaster maiden over 6f from the well-backed and more experienced Tap Your Toes, and he followed that up by finishing third to the useful Major Jack on his handicap debut at Kempton. That latter effort can be upgraded further as he ended up racing wide for half the race and was finishing best of all over the extended 6f trip.

That strongly suggests he will have no problem with today’s 7f and given his breeding – he’s out of a 1m1f-winning half-sister to 7f Group 1 winner Field Of Hope – he should absolutely relish it. Obviously, we are trusting in his fitness but the fact he won first time up last season is encouraging in that respect and his trainer is sounding reasonably confident about his chances.

He said: “He’s in good form.he hasn’t run for a while but he’s done well at home and I think he’s fit. He handles the surface, although he doesn’t have the best draw [stall eight]. We are claiming 3lb off him and I like his chances.”

If further encouragement for a bet was needed it can gleaned from Botti’s record at the track with 81 of his 361 runners (22%) obliging in the last five seasons, for a healthy £1 level-stakes profit of £26.26.
