Free horse racing selections for Saturday's card at Wolverhampton

Anita Chambers provides a selection for every race at Wolverhampton on Saturday.

Orvar appeared to feel the benefit of both a wind surgery and gelding operation when winning on his first outing for Paul Midgley at Wolverhampton earlier in the month.

He looked a really promising all-weather type and victory in the Betway Hever Sprint Stakes would only further confirm that opinion.

Paul Nicholls can leave Kempton with two decent winners in the bag as As De Mee and Cyrname both look set for success at the Sunbury track.

As De Mee is in the mix for the Grand National and this return to regulations fences in the Betdaq Handicap Chase can serve as a nice confidence booster ahead of the big day at Aintree.

As De Mee has had a mixed bag of results so far this term, beating subsequent Sky Bet Chase hero Wakanda on his second start of the season at Kelso back in October, before finding Gold Cup favourite Might Bite a step too far in a Listed heat at Sandown.

That was not a bad run in finishing fourth by any means, so he was not without his supporters when he hit the 10th fence and unseated Sean Bowen in the Becher Chase in December.

Heavy ground that day would hardly have been in As De Mee's favour either so better conditions here combined with standard fences should see Nicholls' runner in much better light.

Cyrname should also be on the scoresheet in the Betdaq Now 2% Commission Pendil Novices' Chase.

He found Terrefort too good in the Scilly Isles Chase at the start of the month, but a neck defeat in Grade One company can hardly be knocked.

Redicean is among the leading lights for the Triumph Hurdle so really should be winning the Betdaq #ChangingForTheBettor Adonis Juvenile Hurdle for Alan King.

The four-mile trip of Newcastle's Betfred Eider Chase is going to take some getting but Harry Whittington expects it will play into the hands of his runner Vinnie Lewis.

The seven-year-old has proved his aptitude for heavy ground and a lengthy trip in winning his last two starts over three and a quarter miles at Sedgefield and three and a half miles at Plumpton.

John Gosden looks set for another stellar year with both Enable and Cracksman staying in training and while Utmost is not of their calibre, he is surely good enough to win the Betway Winter Derby Stakes at Lingfield.

The four-year-old failed to hit the kind of heights connections would have hoped for, but he seems to be on the upgrade now he has another winter under his belt and booked his place here with a fine victory in the trial event.

Rab Havlin was allowed to dictate the pace that day and when challenged, Utmost found plenty to run out a length-and-a-quarter winner with a fair bit seemingly in hand.

Utmost probably will not get as easy a lead here, but he is one on the upgrade and this Group Three prize could be a springboard to even better events over the summer.
