Each-way Thief

MO HENRY (2.30 Wolverhampton)

This veteran ran a cracker when a close-up second in a big field at Ayr five days ago.

He has winning form over this course and distance and is off the same mark as that excellent effort in Scotland.

JOIN FORCES (3.30 Wolverhampton)

William Buck is an eyecatching booking on James Tate’s three-year-old who dug deep to score at Southwell last time.

He went close at Kempton before that so should handle this quicker surface and hasn’t been clobbered for this handicap debut.
