PENNY STOCK showed up well on her handicap debut at Wolverhampton then palpably failed to act on Southwell's Fibresand - she's taken to bounce back in a very poor contest. Sovento hasn't run for a year but is well handicapped and was strongly supported for his last victory. Midnight Sequel won a poor handicap here then failed to overcome a 6lb rise in a better event but Sudden Wish has won on the track and has been going quite well over hurdles. Petersboden has been consistent but has never won in 17 starts on the all-weather and it's a very long time since Lisahane Bog won a race. Graylyn Ruby's better latest effort was in a very poor race.
