COLD AS ICE sets a clear form standard and will be difficult to beat granted a trouble-free run. After a sluggish start, she was one of very few to make ground late on in the fast-track qualifier won by Rivellino over an inadequate 6f last month and should make amends here.
Volunteer Point has improved throughout the winter and is one of few viable each-way alternatives.
Cold As Ice - 2pts @ 4/6

Graham Lee is going to need to be switched on aboard GOKEN in stall one but, providing he can maintain his position, then the four-year-old should go well. Kevin Ryan’s charge clocked a terrific speed figure when winning over course and distance before Christmas (Jamesie beaten 1½l) and was highly tried last term in Group company.
The admirable Lancelot Du Lac is another not ideally positioned, however he has been in irresistible form this winter and was too good for Gamgoom in a track-record time at Chelmsford (5f) last time.
The front-running Gamgoom was narrowly denied by Rivellino (C&D qualifier) last month and could be over priced returned to 6f after finding the minimum trip against him last time.
Goken - 1pt e/w @ 3/1
Gamgoom - 0.25pts e/w @ 16/1

Talented filly MOONRISE LANDING has improved beyond all recognition this winter and looks the one to side with if in the same form as last time where she destroyed Anglophile by 4½l in a very swift time. The runner-up won over course and distance last time, while the fourth-home, Sunblazer, has won his next three to give the form a very solid look.
Anglophile’s all-weather record over trips of 11f or further reads 3211212221 so he should be on the scene for a yard with a good record at this meeting.
Moonrise Landing - 2pts @ 9/4

MINDUROWNBUSINESS boasts an impressive record of 15442110111 at around a mile on synthetic surfaces and warmed up for this event with a canter around Wolverhampton in a small-field prep race. He has struck up a good relationship with Jim Crowley and can land this prize, granted some luck in running.
Sovereign Debt was agonisingly touched off by Mister Universe in his warm up at Wolverhampton and looks sure to run well, while it will be interesting to see how Captain Cat is ridden given he made all the running to score at Kempton and looked more enthusiastic doing so.
Captain Joy looks overpriced given his affinity for a synthetic surface and the fact his two performances here have yielded strong speed figures.

Captain Joy - 0.25pts e/w @ 18/1

There can be few more consistent horses in training than GRENDISAR and Marco Botti’s admirable charge can dominate the conclusion of the All-Weather Championships with victory in the Coral Easter Classic.
Like Lillee and Thomson, Keegan and Toshack or Redgrave and Pinsent, Grendisar has formed one half of a formidable sporting double act with Adam Kirby proving a terrific ally.The duo has teamed up 11 times in the six-year-old’s career and the association has yielded a remarkable string of performances with the bare figures reading 21212112211.
The selection’s unfailing delivery on the big day is a trademark of his career, especially at today’s venue where he landed the biggest prize of his career last month in the Coral Winter Derby.
Grendisar proved too strong for Maverick Wave that day with a typical come-from-behind victory and, although his running style will always make him somewhat of a hostage to fortune, granted the breaks in the straight his change of gear can win him another big prize.
Grendisar - 2pts @ 11/8

Trying to predict 3yo handicaps at this time of year is a tough proposition, especially when Mark Johnston has three participants. The likeable Montsarrat may emerge the best of the trio but
TURN TIDE could trump all three if he has made progress during the winter.
He looked a nice prospect on his final start in a Newcastle handicap (1m) and his yard have sent out four winners in the last fortnight. Richard Fahey is another with a good record in this type of race early season and Dolphin Vista is worth watching in the market.
Turn Tide - 0.5pts e/w @ 5/1

2.55 Wolverhampton

GANG WARFARE, Two Jabs and Silver Quay are all fit, in-form and progressive so look the likeliest winners. The form of the selection’s Southwell win last time has worked out pretty well with the 4th, 5th and 6th all winning since and he is a strong stayer.
Two Jabs will probably be ridden pretty handily too and, although his two attempts at around this trip have met with failure, today’s test looks within his capabilities.
The only concern with Silver Quay was his defeat at short odds when he was returned to the track quickly last December following a similarly impressive win to last week.
Gang Warfare - 1pt e/w @ 7/2
