Partner has been running promisingly without success recently but his turn can come at Wolverhampton on Monday.
Noel Wilson claimed the six-year-old for 12,000 out of Kevin Ryan's stable when he won at Musselburgh in August and the Middleham handler has kept him busy with six runs already, although he has yet to strike gold.
However, it is his last two starts that suggest Partner's luck can change in the wolverhampton-racecourse.com.uk.
Runner-up on this track a month ago, the Indian Ridge gelding was an eyecatching seventh to Kingsgate Choice at Catterick just over a fortnight ago. He could run a big race.
Hugo Palmer has done very well with his two-year-olds and High Time Too can strike for the Newmarket trainer in the Enjoy The Punters Package Group Offer Maiden Auction Stakes.
The daughter of High Chaparral only went down by a head to the experienced Close Together at Lingfield nearly three weeks ago and can waste no further time in opening her account.
Elegant Ophelia is not as exposed as most of her rivals and can get off the mark at the sixth attempt in the Book Horizons Restaurant At Wolverhampton Racecourse Handicap.
Dean Ivory's filly stayed on nicely to take second place behind Grand Liaison over a mile and a quarter at Salisbury and will hopefully be suited by the extra two furlongs.
Smart Flat performer Ransom Note can get his jumping career off to the best possible start in the Weatherbys NH Season Betting Guide Novices' Hurdle at Kempton.
The five-year-old was a Group Two winner on the level for Charlie Hills and looks an exciting recruit for the Nigel Twiston-Davies team.
He has already proved useful by accompanying Imperial Commander in a recent racecourse workout at Chepstow ahead of the 2010 Cheltenham Gold Cup hero's return to action at Haydock later this month.
Ransom Note is sure to have been well-schooled and ought to be a cut above most of these.
Ghizao is worth a chance in the Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Graduation Chase despite a disappointing last campaign.
A Grade Two winner as a novice, he beat Captain Chris before that horse went on to win the 2011 Arkle, with Ghizao trailing home in fifth after a costly jumping error.
Ghizao was still good enough to chase home subsequent Champion Chase hero Finian's Rainbow at Aintree on his final start of his novice year, but his first season in full company hardly went to plan.
Mistakes at fences again cost him on his first two starts while he was reported to have a breathing problem after trailing home at Cheltenham on New Year's Day.
Off the track since then, Paul Nicholls is sure to have sorted out any respiratory troubles and put in plenty of work on the schooling ground, so Ghizao is taken to resurrect his career.
Black Thunder could be a dark horse from the Nicholls yard this term and the lightly-raced five-year-old is worth a second glance in the Pertemps Group Handicap Hurdle (Series Qualifier).
Winner of two of his three starts over hurdles and second in the other, the French import could be anything.
Ballyman can come on for his recent seasonal debut at Plumpton to strike over the course and distance in the Track Your Horses At attheraces.com Handicap Chase.
Jonathan Geake's 11-year-old tried to make all the running and was only collared at the final fence when third to Truckers Benefit.
Lack of a run since February and a mistake at the last obstacle put paid to his chance, but it was a good effort and he can get his head in front this time.
Beware Chalk Pit was another from the Geake stable to shape well on his reappearance here when second to Pete The Feat at the same meeting two weeks ago.
He can go one better in the Join At The Races On Facebook Handicap Chase.
