WOLVERHAMPTON are 13 points clear at the top of the Premiership after a double Bank Holiday Monday victory over Belle Vue.
Wolves were 49-41 winners in both meetings, racing into a 10-point lead at the National Speedway Stadium after just four races.
And after a mini revival from the Aces, they clinched all four league points when impressive reserve Ryan Douglas (15) defeated home star Dan Bewley (15) in the last race with Sam Masters (11) adding third place.
The hosts were then comfortable winners in the return fixture despite heavy crashes for Douglas and Leon Flint.
USA star Luke Becker top-scored with 14+1 from six rides whilst Bewley notched 13 for the visitors, who now cannot finish top of the table.
Becker said: “It definitely couldn’t have gone any better way, having two meetings in one day and coming away with two wins, we can’t complain.
“We’ve been doing awesome at home this year so far, but we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves and we’ve just got to keep our foot on the gas.”
Aces boss Mark Lemon said: “A team’s form doesn’t go bad overnight, and I think the loss of Richie [Worrall] to injury has changed the dynamic amongst the boys.
“While we’re now guaranteed our place in the play-offs, losing twice in one day is not acceptable so we must regroup and come back stronger.”
