Was given a shocker last time when posted wide the whole way and never got into the contest, he gets a big ride switch this evening with the champion taking over and that booking tells you they mean business. He’s on a realistic mark and has drawn just two off the paint, so he should get the perfect run around.

Interestingly enough he brought in some Belgian horseracing form prior to winning at Lingfield two starts back so he flew in under the radar. His last run there just the other day was a very messy contest and as the winner kicked for home he was caught in a pocket on the turn. With anything like a clear run he would’ve been a tidy winner and can make amends stepping onto the Oval at Wolverhampton this evening.
Was a non-runner last week with a vets certificate and let’s hope he’s bounced out of that problem with no issues. That he’s making a quick return suggests all is positive though, and he was an unlucky second last season in the all-weather championship three-year-old final. This contest should suit his hold-ups style as we have a few in the lineup who like to rip along on the front-end. He can pounce late.
Was a regular last season in some very solid handicaps up and down the country and didn’t go unbacked on occasions. He switches across to a red-hot stable and a rider who is off the back of a double on International Women’s Day at Southwell on the weekend. He won’t lack for fitness and can make his all-weather debut a winning one.
Gained her first win on the all-weather up at Newcastle last time and was all also off the back of a 158 day layoff. Admittedly she does need a career-best off her perch of 86 this evening, however, a little look into her pedigree and there are a few group performers on the female side of the pedigree, The trainer has made a decent start to 2020 with already nine winners on the board.
