As King Kevin won over a mile and a half last time out and seemed to stay every yard of it, the 10 furlongs he faces might be on the sharp side.

Nonios, on the other hand, is more exposed than King Kevin but is in the form of his life for David Simcock.

A winner over this course and distance in January, he has remained at the top of his game and went down only by a short head last time out.

Despite King Kevin’s fruitful spell, the only previous time he has run in this class of race he was put in his place.

The handicapper is struggling to keep up with Good Business and she can win again in the totepool Bets At totesport.com Fillies’ Handicap.

Trained by Henry Spiller upon leaving Jeremy Noseda, she has won both starts for her new yard.Now up to 63, she has the excellent William Cox taking 5lb off to offset her latest rise in the weights.

Global Academy is a very good horse to be running for just under £6,000 in the Betway Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton.

Wins at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton have seen his rating shoot up to 90.

Kerry Lee’s Tree Of Liberty should take some stopping in the Alfa Aggregate Products Novices’ Chase.
