'Excellent' Silca's Dream eyes Wolverhampton glory

Silca's Dream has been in excellent heart so far this year and can claim his second career success in the 32Red Casino Classified Stakes at Wolverhampton.

Hailing from an excellent family, the Mick Channon-trained gelding has failed to live up to the heights achieved by some of his relations, but proved smart enough in maiden company last time.

Striking gold at the sixth attempt, Silca's Dream made hard work of it, but showed a battling attitude in holding off Alhaarth Beauty by just under a length despite suffering a slightly troubled passage.

Honest strike was a comfortable winner at Lingfield last week and he can make it a quickfire double in the Book Tickets At wolverhampton-racecourse.co.uk Handicap.

unex modigliani showed plenty of promise on his only juvenile start last term and can build on that in the 32Red.com Maiden Stakes.

He raced very green in finishing a four-length second on that occasion at Yarmouth, but will surely keep improving.

PURCELL turns out again quickly at Lingfield following his short-head defeat at the Surrey track last week.

Making his first start in 227 days, Purcell was also tackling handicap company for the first time when going down by an incredibly narrow margin to Hard Walnut.

Purcell still makes plenty of appeal in the Golf & Racing At Lingfield Marriott Handicap.

RED TYKE returns to obstacles for Wetherby's Pristine Cars Wetherby Handicap Hurdle after a pleasing effort on the level last month.

John Quinn's useful dual-purpose performer has three times over hurdles this season, but was just tapped for toe when the pace upped a notch on the opening day of the Flat at Doncaster. He kept on again once he found his stride to finish fourth, but will not need to be quite so speedy here.

WHISKY YANKEE beat Creepy last time and should go well again in the Chepstow Annual Members Handicap Hurdle.
