Timeform pick out three bets from Wolverhampton on Monday.

"He’s been raised 2 lb for that effort, but remains one to be interested in..."

Isstoora - 14:00 Wolverhampton

Archie Watson has booked Simon Walker for Isstoora, which is a very positive sign in a race of this type, and she's taken to overcome a wide draw and make it two from two for her new trainer from what looks a workable mark. Beepeecee shaped well over this sort of trip at Lingfield last time and should go well again, while Barnaby Brook has won twice and finished runner-up on his 3 visits here so is another who has to be taken seriously.

A Sure Welcome - 15:10 Wolverhampton

A Sure Welcome has taken his form to a new level of late, losing little in defeat against a thriving type over this C&D last time, again going with plenty of zest, only overhauled in the final 100 yards, arguably doing too much too soon in a well-run race. He's been raised 2 lb for that effort, but remains one to be interested in and is preferred to Run With Pride, who had something in hand when winning at Kempton last time.

Tiger Lyon - 15:40 Wolverhampton

The speed which Tiger Lyon showed over six furlongs at Chelmsford suggests this shorter trip could prove ideal and he gets the vote from a handy draw near the rail. Deviate is fairly treated if bouncing back to her best form, while the fact Magic Mark was sent off favourite on his nursery debut suggests he's thought capable of better than he showed on that occasion.
