Wolverhampton has grown in importance since its first All-Weather meeting in 1993. Of the 7 current All-Weather tracks, Wolverhampton held the most meetings in 2017 so it can really pay horse racing tipsters to follow Wolverhampton form lines.
In 2015 the fibresand track was replaced by a Tapeta surface, trainers, jockeys and owners seem satisfied with the new surface for their horses and the standard of runners at the West Midlands track has improved in recent years.
Wolverhampton Highlights: The big race at Wolverhampton is the Listed Lady Wulfruna Stakes, run in March around the same time as the Cheltenham Festival.
It seems flat trainers look at the prize money on offer at the Festival and come over all envious and target this valuable flat race (£28K). The winners over the last few years have come from the big flat stables, of William Haggas, Mark Johnston and David O’Meara.
The winner of the Lady Wulfruna tends to go for the All-Weather Mile Championship (£98k) at Lingfield in April.
Wolverhampton also holds some valuable handicaps for horses primed to run in the early season Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster, as well as some end of season Class 2 Nurseries for 2 Year old's.
As mentioned above the synthetic surface was changed to tapeta here in 2015 which is the same as Newcastle's all-weather track but different from the Polytrack at Chelmsford, Kempton, Lingfield and the fibresand at Southwell.
Wolverhampton's surface tends to ride a bit quicker than the tapeta at Newcastle, perhaps possibly due more to the layout whereby Newcastle has a long straight and stamina seems to be more important.
