Race five on the evening at Wolves sees the Class 3 Handicap over 8.5f and Have Secret for Richard Fahey and Team Yorkshire can go close again.

A smart performer at the back end of last term when notching up two nice wins in handicap company at Haydock and Nottingham which saw him jump in the weights.

Starting this term off a mark of 89 when a good fourth at Newbury over 1m2f only finishing a length behind the winner Bertinelli who went on to frank the form.

Sent to Royal Ascot in June when again a close fourth off 2lb higher in the Golden Gates Stakes Handicap behind Burdett Road, he then went to Glorious Goodwood on soft conditions and put up a stellar second off 1lb higher behind the runaway winner Royal Rhyme, finishing best of the rest.

Last seen at the Ebor meeting on rapid ground in the Finale Handicap he did not run his normal race but now being dropped into a much easier event off 1lb lower he can resume his progress he has shown all season against better horses.

Team To Follow - Team Ireland

We put up Team Ireland to follow at Newcastle on the all weather last week and it paid off with them having having their best Racing League meeting to date and they send a strong team to Wolves on Thursday looking to back up that good run of form and try and take top spot from Team Wales And The West.

Team Ireland have some chances throughout the evening starting in the opener with two chances but the best of them being the Richard Spencer trained Suicide Blonde on handicap debut.

They could make a fast start to the night with a good chance in the second event with Momaer for Mark and Billy Loughnane looking to go better than his third at Chepstow's Racing League meeting, finishing behind a next time out winner in this format in Nordic Passage.

Moonspirit is the current favourite for the Class 4 Handicap over 8.5f and having ran well at Newcastle seven days ago in the fourth round of the Racing League he holds a big chance again off the same mark dropping in trip.

With other nice chances throughout the card, one of their stand out runners comes in the penultimate event of the evening with the Tony Martin trained Belgoprince who heads into the event after a 11 length success at Epsom in the Amateurs' Derby.
