Triple Dream may be rising nine, but he seems better than ever and is fancied to strike gold at Wolverhampton.

Milton Bradley’s charge was a winner at Haydock in July but has hit the bar on his two most recent all-weather outings.

He was given a break over the summer, presumably for a winter campaign, and he made a fine start when beaten just under a length at Dunstall Park before rolling on to Lingfield where just a head separated him and Picansort.

Triple Dream stayed on well that day and was just undone by a real course specialist over the minimum trip.

The handicapper has seen fit to raise him 2lb for that effort but he has shown before that he is capable of winning off that kind of mark ahead of the Compare Bookmakers At Handicap.

Branston De Soto makes the switch to handicap company after three fruitless maiden starts and that can prove an excellent decision.

Well beaten on his first couple of racecourse efforts, Mark Johnston’s inmate showed a bit more sparkle on his final start at that level, finishing second in a mile maiden at Nottingham.

He is clearly no world-beater but looks on a workable mark in the 32Red Nursery Handicap.

Golden Steps hails from the family of fine mare Beauty Is Truth and is worth supporting in the Maiden Stakes.

He cost a not inconsiderable 150,000 euro as a yearling and Marco Botti is more than capable of getting one ready first time out.

Deciding Moment impressed when winning at Wincanton in October and can follow up in the Emerald Green Feeds Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase at Market Rasen.

Ben de Haan’s charge has not seen much racing for a seven-year-old, but that patient approach can pay dividends judged by his recent five-length verdict as a 25-1 shot.
