KING’S KNIGHT still won by over three lengths at Wolverhampton despite being eased down in the closing stages. Due to be raised by more than today’s 5lb penalty in the future, he can strike again in this lower grade. Society Lion has plenty to find with the selection though Frankie gets the leg-up today but Swiss Ace may prove a bigger threat off his current mark having placed over track and trip last time. Dave Dexter had the measure of Bellagio Man over 6f at Southwell before struggling back on the Turf.
