18:00 Wolverhampton Wed 20 February 2019
Good effort in finishing 5L fourth upped to 2m for the first time at Kempton earlier this month. Drop in trip not certain to suit but interesting with a useful jockey up dropping in grade.
Maiden after nine starts and finished well beaten in a first time visor (retained) over 1m4f at Kempton early last month. Stable can boast a 19% strike-rate (5/27) in recent weeks.
Finished ¾L fourth of five in a tight finish to a 2m handicap at Lingfield earlier this month when last in action. Races off the same mark here and is chasing a first Flat success at the 20th time of asking.
Winner over an extended 1m5f at Chelmsford just over 12 months ago. Disappointing in three runs since returning from a break and races off a mark 5lb higher than for that triumph.
Victorious in a handicap over an extended 2m here on his penultimate start. Good head second to lady Makfi over the same C&D subsequently and is one for the shortlist for a stable who's last two runners have both won.
Successful in a 1m4f handicap here in December. Well below that form in two subsequent starts at this venue and probably best watched off a mark 1lb higher than for that victory.
Maiden after four starts and finished well beaten over an extended 2m at Newcastle on handicap debut in October. Worth a check in the market having had wind surgery in the interim period.
Seven race maiden was beaten 12L in first time cheekpieces (retained) when finishing fifth over 1m4f here a month ago. Market support would be notable with this step up in distance likely to suit.
Maiden after eight starts and failed to build on promising 1m4f fourth at Catterick (good-to-firm) when 11th at Newcastle in October. Probably best watched on debut for this yard.
Returned from a break with victory in a 1m6f handicap at Chelmsford early last month. Making his first Flat start in well over a year that day and is interesting despite a 5lb rise in the weights.
