Timeform pick out their three best bets on the card at Wolverhampton on Monday.

"...a subsequent 4 lb rise could well underestimate him..."

Dolphin Village - 19:15 Wolverhampton

Dolphin Village is on a lengthy losing run, but he has slipped down to a career-low mark, and could be ready to strike. He took a step back in the right direction with the hood back on at Lingfield 10 days ago, making headway when short of room entering the straight, but keeping on well once finding his stride. The drop back in trip isn't a problem and a repeat of that effort could suffice here. Saturday's Chelmsford winner Outlaw Torn and Sunshineandbubbles will be among those prominent from the off and won't be far away at the business end, either.

Celestial Spheres - 19:45 Wolverhampton

Celestial Spheres is building a very solid profile and is fancied to record his fourth win in his last six starts here. He showed his best for yet to win a handicap at Lingfield last time, admittedly seen to good advantage, well positioned and getting first run on the eventual runner-up, but a subsequent 4 lb rise could well underestimate him. Soldier In Action should be a big player on his return, while Mount Tahan isn't without a chance if staying this new trip which he is bred to.

Kion - 20:15 Wolverhampton

Kion could prove a shrewd acquisition for new connections and can make a winning start in Britain having gone down narrowly in a big-field maiden at the Curragh when last seen. Swiss Belle made the perfect start here last month and is sure to improve, while Black Sails will likely find an opening for Archie Watson after a good introduction for the trainer at Kempton a fortnight ago.
