Thoughts on Permanent at Wolverhampton

Permanent runs in the 2.oo, 7 furlong Nursery Handicap at Wolverhampton today (Tuesday, 01 November) with Richard Kingscote in the saddle. He is a nicely bred, fine looking horse that unfortunately is yet to show his ability on the racecourse. He is forever improving on the gallops at home and is showing that he has a large amount of ability ready to transfer to the racecourse. After some time ticking over at home, he should be ready to show himself in hopefully a brighter light this afternoon. The transfer to the all weather and drop in class is sure to help him.

The race itself is of lesser quality than Permanent has contested in the past but still consists of a few decent performers with Western Presence being an obvious starting point when only being touched off last time out over six furlongs and galloping the whole way to the line looks sure to relish the extra furlong. Alice’s Dream looks a horse in form when fending off the challenge of a strong finishing runner last time out over course and distance and although the margin of winning doesn’t seem so impressive it looked a smart performance for a race of this standard.
