Three-Year-Old Ready For Another Win At Wolverhampton

Quick Return A pointer For Gelding's Success

Chris Kellett trains just four horses, all for Andy Bell & Fergus Lyons, in a lovely part of Lancashire and sends DECONSO down the M6 today with a realistic chance of getting his head in front. He wasn't disgraced on turf at Yarmouth just last Thursday, that following another reasonable, if unspectacular six and threequarters length run behind Jungle Juice at Chepstow.

It is Deconso's all-weather, or more specifically his Wolverhampton form that catches the eye; he has raced here six times and has won twice, both over six furlongs but he was running on well in each event and the distance shouldn't be a problem. He goes off a mark of 51 today and that is very encouraging as his last win was off just a pound lower. Also, due to the unseasonable recent weather, the going is standard to slow, again as it was for his last win. Toby Eley, who rode Global Hope to a win last Thursday, takes off 5lb.

It is a 12-runner all-weather handicap so there are plenty of dangers, with CAUTHEN heading the list. He is top on BTO ratings and has the talent and 3lb allowance of Cieren Fallon to help him but has been away from the course for nearly four months and only beat two home when he last reappeared after a break.

MUHALLAB, might be next best after returning to form when stepped up to this distance at Redcar; the progeny of his sire War Command are just three from 32 at this course, however, not a big positive.

With a small reservation about the trip, Deconso looks decent at 9/2.
