16:50 Wolverhampton

I’m not really sure what happened with AHLAWI at Southwell as he was held up and just failed to make any sort of an impact finishing well down the field. His reappearance run prior to that where he missed by just a neck at that venue was hugely promising so it was good to see him back in the winners enclosure over C&D last month. He was slowly into stride again which he can do but he still managed to stay on strongly to get there. This is a slightly better race and he is up 3lb but if he can get a better break he might be the value to take this. That was a career best last time so he looks on an upward curve now. This track suits his style and I think on the balance he is worth chancing. Abbey Heights won well here last time and is lightly raced so shouldn’t be underestimated but he has been turned over as favourite before. Vespasian is quite a frustrating individual but if putting it all in could be the main threat to the selection.
Ahlawi - 1pt @ 5/1
