Thoughts on Chitra at Wolverhampton

Chitra runs this afternoon in the 4.40pm at Wolverhampton. Adam McNamara is in the irons again for the five furlong handicap. They are drawn wide in stall 9, which can makes life tricky, however the filly is customarily quick away so that may help. She was beaten just a head in a slightly stronger race last week and should hold a good chance here.

The main rival to Chitra is likely to be the twice raced winner The Nosey Parker who drops to five furlongs for the first time having won over six furlongs last time. Fashion Advice is still relatively lightly raced and has put up a couple of good efforts in defeat on the all weather recently and is another that could be involved.

Chitra is by Sea The Moon, out of the Shamardal mare, Persian Star. She will be led up by Billie Portwin, and overseen by Shaun Johnson. She is owned and was bred by Gary and Lesley Middlebrook
