Beshaayir can add to the tally for in-form team at Wolverhampton

DECENT: Beshaayir
DECENT: Beshaayir

William Haggas and James Doyle's association has got off to a good start already this season and the pair team up again with Beshaayir in the Follow @myracingtips on Twitter Fillies' Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton.

With the Lincoln already in the bag for Haggas and Doyle thanks to the potentially top-class Addeybb and a double on All-Weather Finals Day, both trainer and jockey can be content with a profitable start to the season.

This filly could be pretty decent too, having shown up well on her debut at Newbury in August when beaten only a nose before returning to Berkshire and winning comfortably.

That form is not too shabby as the runner-up, Foxtrot Lady, was subsequently placed in Listed company, so while Beshaayir's 1000 Guineas entry might look fanciful at this stage, it does at least show the regard in which she is held.

Goldream might not be capable of repeating his 2015 Royal Ascot win in the King's Stand, but the nine-year-old is still well treated ahead of the wolverhamptonracecourse.co.uk Conditions Stakes.

Robert Cowell's speedster showed on numerous occasions last season that he was still very capable, with his best effort coming in the Temple Stakes at Haydock when second to Priceless.

He is one from six on the all-weather, but most of those runs came before he emerged as a top-class sprinter and given he is getting weight off his main rivals, on the figures at least, he is worth chancing given he has a decent record fresh.

Tim Easterby's Sheriff Garrett can take advantage of a low weight in the myracing.com Handicap.

He has not run since chasing home Redicean, who has subsequently emerged as just about the best juvenile hurdler on these shores, so that effort can be marked up and he promises to be suited by the step up to two miles.

Colin's Brother is on a roll at present and he can make it a hat trick in the Boyne Cup at Ludlow.

The eight-year-old struck at this track in December and then followed up at Leicester in February, showing plenty of guts to steal a nose verdict in a photo with Creep Desbois.

The handicapper has pushed him up 3lb for that success, but Colin's Brother can rise to the challenge.

Destrier can come out on top in the second division of the Matchbook Betting Exchange Novices' Hurdle at Kempton.

Dan Skelton's charge has already hit the mark twice over hurdles this term, but found Grade Two company beyond him when pitched into the Dovecote at this track back in February.

Beaten 18 lengths in fifth, the five-year-old just could not find a switch up in gear when the race really got going, but he was certainly not disgraced as he looks a further chasing type.

Adrien Du Pont is the one to beat in the Matchbook Betting Exchange Novices' Hurdle at Wincanton.

Paul Nicholls' runner has been batting away in decent company all season, placing at Grade Two level a couple of times before failing to take advantage of what appeared to be a winning opportunity at Ascot last month.

KEMPTON: 2.00 Salix, 2.30 Destrier, 3.00 Bach De Clermont, 3.35 Station Master, 4.10 Turban, 4.45 Molly Childers, 5.20 Prince Mahler, 5.50 Uncle Percy.

LUDLOW: 2.20 Weebill, 2.50 Fourth Act, 3.25 Don Bersy, 3.55 Colin's Brother, 4.30 Molly Carew, 5.05 Bay Sly, 5.35 Oh Michelle.

WINCANTON: 2.10 The Dellercheckout, 2.40 Norse Light, 3.15 Jammin Masters, 3.45 Argyle, 4.20 Adrien Du Pont, 4.55 What Larks, 5.25 Unwin Vc.

WOLVERHAMPTON: 5.15 Dalness Express, 5.45 BESHAAYIR (NAP), 6.15 Goldream, 6.45 Navajo Storm, 7.15 Let Me In, 7.45 Sheriff Garrett, 8.15 Noneedtotellme, 8.45 Gone With The Wind.

DOUBLE: Beshaayir and Goldream.
