CHEYLESMORE attempted to carry a hefty burden to victory over 6f here last week but it proved too much for him and he could only manage fourth. However, he scored over C&D before that and can return to winning ways in this company. Hawk Moth seems to save his best for Wolverhampton and Micky P has posted his best form over 6f so far. Four Richer is lightly-raced but was beaten a distance on his only start in soft going while it was good to firm ground when Paperetto went close over track and trip last week.
