Windforpower had a favourite's chance at this track yesterday and would carry a penalty in this if successful. Lager Time still ran well over 7f earlier this month despite failing to land a hat-trick and he should figure but The Black Jacobin and Betzyoucan have something to prove as they also drop back in distance. BUY ART hasn't raced since winning his maiden at Brighton in June but his yard has been rattling up the winners in the past 10 days and Gary Moore's charge is taken to make a winning return to action.
Windforpower (IRE) 7-1 (9-7) Chased leading pair, challenged travelling well inside final 2f, every chance inside final furlong, kept on but not pace of winner, 2nd of 7, 1 3/4l behind Groove On (9-7) at Wolverhampton 6f 3yo hcp 0-70 (5) pol.

Lager Time (IRE) 7-2 (9-7) In touch, chased leaders over 1f out, kept on well closing stages, 3rd of 10, 1 1/2l behind Red Dragon (9-7) at Wolverhampton 7f 3yo hcp 0-65 (6) pol.
