Here is a quick list of Pete's picks from Wolverhampton.

Author's Dream (18.30 Wolverhampton)

The Tron (19.00 Wolverhampton)

Alaskan Jewel (20.00 Wolverhampton)

And the following is a rundown of why Pete's Wolverhampton picks are wonderful.

18.30 Wolverhampton - Author's Dream

Pete is keen on the William Knight trained Author's Dream in the Betway Handicap, a winner of two out of his last three starts.

A victory at Kempton over an extended two mile trip was enhanced by a last time out win at Southwell at a marathon two miles, two and a half furlongs.

The jockey booking of the talented Tom Marquand is a bonus and here are a few of the reasons why Author's Dream can give the bookies nightmares.

"A course and distance winner could be a great way to go. Had a one in three average this time last year as well in this kind of race. Is just a very good horse for this kind of class. Now won last time with a career best at Southwell, that impressed me a great deal.

I'm not too worried about the performances at the likes of York and Newbury and Haydock a few months ago because none of those races really suited this runner.

Off the grass, this is the kind of runner you should be backing for this kind of race."

19.00 Wolverhampton - The Tron

One for 1980's science fiction film buffs, Tron was a film about a hacker kidnapped into a digital world.

Friday night at Wolves is about as real as it gets but Pete is hoping for a connected showing from The Tron who is chasing a two-timer in the Betway Classified Stakes.

A game neck win last time around at Southwell will stand Derek Shaw's charge in good stead and here are a few of the reasons why the Tron can turn it on in the Midlands.

"This is a horse that is in great form, a win at Southwell over a shorter trip, four and change last time around, moved up to five and change this time, but that doesn't really matter because this is horse that has won well across four and change, five and change and over six furlongs as well.

Some second and third places in there too. There's not too many in this race that particularly scare me and The Tron, who is a fairly short price at the time of recording, is still statistically the way to go here."

20.00 Wolverhampton - Alaskan Jewel

Pete is never one to shy away from outsiders and he sees some rough diamond value in Alaskan Jewel in the Coral Proud To Support British Racing Handicap.

With three third places in his last five runs, Pete reckons Adrien Keatley's three-year-old can squeak a place here again at a nice price.

Lewis Edmunds gets up on the son of Kodiac and here is a snippet of why Pete thinks that Alaskan Jewel can shine.

"This for me is a very good way in as long as the price holds…Alaskan Jewel has landed each-way terms at 6/1, 11/1 and recently 22/1 as well.

Now that is a very good run if you are fancying some each-way form. Was a good runner actually here actually at Wolverhampton landing each-way a third placed finish in a minor course and distance performance last time around.

The price is way too big and certainly some of the each-way payouts on Alaskan Jewel have been very good."
