8 runners declared for (0-105) 12 furlong class two handicap .The three main contenders are First Mohican ,Winterlude & Paddy's Motorbike .
FIRST MOHICAN : Won 5 out 18 on turf ,though lightly raced on All Weather winning 1 out 4 ,including winning 14 furlong class 2 handicap at Wolverhampton in December .Also finished creditable 2ND last time in 12F handicap at Lingfield .Should go well off the same mark .
WINTERLUDE : Lightly raced 6-Y-0 gelding ,winning 3 out 8 on All Weather .Won class two 10 furlong handicap at Lingfield in January off mark 93 . Slightly disappointing at Chelmsford last time ,though was unsuited by very slowly run race .Goes well here at Wolverhampton and will be suited returning to this longer trip .
PADDY'S MOTORBIKE : Consistent sort , C&D winner here at Wolverhampton, winning class three handicap here in January off mark 87 .Finished fair third last time at Lingfield over 12 furlongs ,behind Sunblazer .Should be thereabouts ,though looks bit high in the weights .
VERDICT : WINTERLUDE will be suited returning to this longer trip ,having been unsuited by very slow pace over 10 furlongs last time . Has shown some useful form on All Weather and has won off this mark (96) .Odds around 9-2 look very fair value .
