Majeyda may be returning from a lengthy absence, but she appears the class act in the 32Red Fillies' Conditions Stakes at Wolverhampton.

Majeyda may be returning from a lengthy absence, but she appears the class act in the 32Red Fillies' Conditions Stakes at Wolverhampton.

Charlie Appleby has made no secret of his desire to get a few runners qualified for All Weather Championships Finals day and this Fast Track qualifier offers Majeyda an ideal opportunity to book her ticket for the Good Friday card.

She has clearly had her issues, though, as she has not been sighted since finishing down the field in a Listed event at Royal Ascot back in June.

Majeyda still boasts a mark of 103, though, which puts her upwards of 7lb higher than all of her rivals and well treated under the conditions of the race.

Almanack is the pick in the Ladbrokes Handicap after scoring at this track last month.

He triumphed in an extended mile affair that day.

However, he did not fare so well at Lingfield last time, having to settle for third behind Heisman after putting in all his best work at the finish.

His strong staying qualities were on view that day and a switch back up to the marginally longer trip here is a big positive.

Paul Nicholls pitches Saphir Du Rheu straight into Grade Two company as he makes the switch to fences in the Fuller's London Pride Novices' Chase at Newbury.

The five-year-old always looked the type who would excel over larger obstacles in due course and he can prove that impression to be correct in this two-and-a-half-mile heat.

Nicky Henderson's runners are hardly firing on all cylinders at present so Call The Cops is a slightly tentative pick in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle.

Zaidiyn is well thought of by Brian Ellison and can continue on the upward curve in the Massarellas Centenary Novices' Hurdle at Doncaster.

Mount Haven is the pick as he makes the long trip north from David Pipe's yard to Musselburgh for the Cornhill Building Services Ltd Maiden Hurdle.
