Disclosure could take advantage of a drop in class

Disclosure is value at 7/1

Betting Tip: @ 7/1 with paddypower

Gabrial The Thug is chasing a four-timer in the extended mile handicap at Wolverhampton and he looks sure to go off favourite. In his current frame of mind he will take some stopping, but the handicapper may have finally got a handle on him, having nudged him up a further 5lb, and he’s taking on better rivals than he’s used to.

With just 5/2 on offer I’m tempted to take him on and the one who interests me most is Les Eyre’s DISCLOSURE, who has run well on two of his last three starts at the track. His latest fourth in a Class 5 handicap can be upgraded as he was held up in last place before keeping on well up the unfavoured inside rail to be beaten just three lengths by the winner.

Today’s Class 6 contest looks an easier opportunity for the gelding and, having been dropped 2lb since his last run, he lines up off a 1lb lower mark them when romping home at Thirsk back in August. Ideally, I’d like to see him being ridden a bit closer to the pace than in previous starts and I’m trusting his pilot David Allan in that respect, but any doubts on that score are more than compensated by his price of 7/1.
