My Good Brother was sent to Wolverhampton to lose his maiden tag which he did with authority and though the assessor hasn't done him any favours Colin Keane's claim will be a big help and there should be more to come. LITTLE VILLAGE has only run three times here and won once. He looks very reasonably treated at just 2lb higher and looks set to double his tally at the track. Dark Danger could prove a threat as he's been racing over trips too far and generally shows good early pace. The remainder will need to make progress though this looks the kind of race where market support should be noted.
