Horse racing tips: Timeform preview and selections for evening action

Timeform highlight two horses of interest at Wolverhampton this evening.

ROCK CHANT - 19:30 Wolverhampton

ROCK CHANT ran well when runner-up in a mile-and-three-quarter handicap at Southwell last month and he built on that to register a comprehensive victory at Lingfield last Wednesday on his first outing over two miles.

Rock Chant quickened up nicely to lead over two furlongs out and drew clear inside the final furlong to score by three and three-quarter lengths.

That turn of foot is likely to stand him in good stead in a race unlikely to be run at a strong gallop and, still unexposed as a stayer, he should be able to defy a 5 lb penalty.

OKEANOS - 20:30 Wolverhampton

OKEANOS attracted strong support on his debut at Southwell in December, going off the 13/8 favourite, but he was very green and was only able to finish fourth in that seven-furlong novice after blowing the start.

Okeanos failed to land a blow back at Southwell on his next start over a mile, but, dropped in trip to six furlongs, he produced a much more encouraging effort when runner-up here last month, keeping on well after breaking slowly again.

He still looked very green last time so should progress for the experience, while the application of a tongue tie here offers another possible source of improvement. He goes handicapping off a potentially fair mark and gets the vote to brush aside some largely exposed rivals.
