Wolverhampton - Wednesday 12th August 2020

1 4:05 PM - British Stallion Studs EBF Whiston Maiden Stakes (Plus 10)

ENVEGA certainly wasn't disgraced when fourth on her debut in a red-hot Newmarket maiden (winner touched off in a French Group 3 and second and third have both won since) and, receiving 5lb off the boys, she could be the answer here. Chase That Dream shaped encouragingly first time out at Lingfield and that experience won't have been lost on him, while well-bred newcomer Summer Power cannot be ruled out either.

LIKELY SUCCESSOR produced her best effort yet when runner-up in a Bath maiden last month and a repeat performance could suffice on her handicap debut. Trixie Mitskie, another handicap newcomer, was much improved at Lingfield last time and warrants respect now equipped with blinkers under Silvestre De Sousa. Find A Penny also merits consideration on her first all-weather spin with Harrison Shaw claiming a valuable 3lb.

3 5:05 PM - Final Furlong Podcast Handicap

It might pay to side with THE DEFIANT, who brings winning course and distance form to the table and produced his best effort for some time when third off a 1lb higher mark at Musselburgh latest. Comeatchoo has been knocking on the door over 6f and this drop back in distance shouldn't bother him, while Blue Venture and Wade's Magic also merit shortlist inclusion.

4 5:35 PM - Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Handicap

Grandfather Tom's last couple of efforts have been full of promise and he could be in the shake-up again, while Absolutio would be a player if able to back up his 10/1 victory over 6f here. However, the one that makes most appeal is BENNY AND THE JETS, who won his only previous visit here and the four-year-old ran a cracking race off a 2lb higher mark at Goodwood last time. Oisin Murphy has been booked and a bold bid looks assured.

5 6:10 PM - Download The At The Races App Handicap

KODIAC PRIDE would have made it two wins on the bounce at Salisbury on Sunday but for the weight cloth falling off in the closing stages. That said, he escapes the double penalty, having won at Lingfield last week, and is likely to prove a tough nut to crack based on those performances. Nordic Fire proved to be disappointing in three outings for David O'Meara last season but he could step forward for both a wind operation and being gelded. Hajjam, Fancy Footings and Amplification are others worthy of consideration.

6 6:40 PM - Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap

KINGSHOLM ran a lot better on his latest start when fifth over C&D having not appreciated soft ground on his return to action at Haydock and James Fanshawe's gelding warrants the utmost respect now making his handicap debut. He is taken to reverse form with Cupid's Beau (second), as that rival was ridden more positively in that contest, while Grace And Virtue highlighted her resolution to record a determined success over this trip at Pontefract, before finishing second at Haydock on Tuesday, and has to be respected.

7 7:10 PM - Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Novice Stakes (Div 1)

MUTALAHEF was producing his best work in the closing stages when runner-up on debut at Lingfield in December and the son of Kingman is entitled to have learnt plenty from that experience. Ilaraab got off the mark at Thirsk on his second outing and has to enter the reckoning, despite giving 4lb and upwards to all of his rivals, while any market support for the newcomers Blue Flame and Secret Account would have to be noted.

8 7:40 PM - Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Novice Stakes (Div 2)

VOTTORIA LIGHT made a big step forward when runner-up to the exciting Darain on his second outing at Newmarket and Charlie Appleby's gelding makes plenty of appeal based on that performance. Tasaamuh was no match for My Oberon, who subsequently finished second in a Group 3 at Goodwood, at York but she is likely to be competitive along with Heaven Forfend, who is slowly becoming frustrating to follow but he has the raw ability to go close.

9 8:10 PM - Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap

MISS MOROCCO may just have needed her most recent start when fourth at Doncaster having weakened inside the final furlong on that occasion and the four-year-old is open to progression on her fourth career start. Mayfair Pompette has been in decent form in 2020 and may benefit from the step up in distance, while Daheer is likely to appreciate a flatter track compared to what he encountered at Chepstow last month.
