Timeform’s Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap, Next Best and Each-Way selection at Wolverhampton on Monday.
“A 2 lb rise means he stays in the same class of handicap and the step up to seven furlongs can see him in an even better light…”
NAP: Dark Design can progress again
Dark Design was a three-time winner for Joseph Murphy in Ireland and made a bright start for new connections when scoring at the first time of asking at Chelmsford last month. He went without his usual headgear and tongue tie and proved better than ever to defeat a next-time-out winner with a bit in hand, encountering trouble but getting up in the dying strides. A 2 lb rise means he stays in the same class of handicap and the step up to seven furlongs can see him in an even better light.
NEXT BEST: Algheed can take advantage of a drop in grade
Algheed is from a good family and showed fairly useful form for Marcus Tregoning but has improved further for these connections, opening her account on handicap debut at Lingfield in August and performing with credit off higher marks thereafter. She has run well in minor events the last twice, too, and this represents a drop in class for her. She is just 2 lb higher than her winning mark in the summer and is sure to make her presence felt.
EACH-WAY: A hat-trick could be on the cards
Universal Effect was in top form when last seen around this time last year, winning her last two starts, both over course and distance, and she could be worth chancing on her return to action for a yard that will likely have her straight enough. The form of her latest win is solid form for the grade and she still looks well enough treated from a 3 lb higher mark based on the pick of her old form.
