Timeform take you through the card at Wolverhampton on Thursday evening.


17:40 - It's really hard to see past WOLFCATHCERJACK (4), who has shown much improved form to win both his starts in handicaps so far. He looked better the further he went at Kempton last time, so this longer trip could bring about even more improvement, and he looks banker material under a top amateur.

18:10 - Given MILITARY PARADE's (3) speedy pedigree, it was surprising to see him start out over middle distances, but he clearly stays and shaped with plenty of promise on debut at Chelmsford last time. He looked in need of the experience, running green but keeping on well in the closing stages, and he looks well up to winning a maiden.

18:40 - LAURA KNIGHT (5) showed her best form to date at Kempton last week, unlucky to bump into an improving type. She is able to race off the same mark here, and is fancied to go one place better fitted with first-time cheekpieces under Silvestre De Sousa. Just for Fun was better than the bare result at Thirsk last time and, still open to improvement, she could prove the biggest danger.

19:10 - NEWSTEAD ABBEY (4) has only gone up 3 lb for his C&D success two weeks ago, and given he was idling late on and remains well treated on old form, is probably worth chancing to follow up. The runner-up that day Indian Affair should be thereabouts again and is a solid alternative, while the three-year-old Canadian Royal can also play a part in an open handicap.

19:40 - OJALA (6) showed the benefit of his debut effort and shaped well when finishing third in a six-furlong Windsor minor event earlier this month, seemingly just caught out by some residual greenness, and he could be worth chancing with the likelihood of better to come. This is competitive, however, with Another Day Of Sun, Eesha Beauty and Moxy Mares heading up an extensive shortlist.

20:10 - ENVISAGING (9) remains a maiden, but he has some solid form to his name, and looks the one to focus on here. He shaped as though on a workable mark when third back on the all-weather at Kempton last time, finishing well from an unpromising position. From the same mark, he makes most appeal, ahead of the well-handicapped Energia Flavio.

20:40 - ROBBIE ROO ROO (8) did well to resume winning ways at Kempton two starts back and having ran creditably back on turf at Newmarket last time, she could be worth chancing to continue the good work back on all-weather. Flower Cup and Art's Desire may well emerge as the chief threats.
