Cowell's star has X factor

It is not often Wolverhampton takes centre-stage but Dunstall Park is certainly the focal point tomorrow by staging the richest race of the day.

And the £15,000 Handicap can provide Canadian Danehill with his fifth course success.

Robert Cowell's sprinter has already recorded three wins over this five furlongs, plus one over seven.

The five-year-old has also been in fine form on turf, winning two of his last four starts at Sandown and Yarmouth, as well as finishing third in well-contested events at Doncaster and Newmarket.

Obviously he is in good heart and should take the world of beating.

Red Birr's last two wins have come on this track and he can serve up another success in the Sponsor A Race By Calling 0870 220 2442 Handicap.

Paul Webber's runner made a triumphant return from a five-month break over this course and distance two weeks ago.

He has gone up 4lb for beating Paradise Dancer half a length but will be all the better for the outing.

Fisher Bridge returns to the scene of his debut run when he lines up for the Horizons Restaurant Handicap.

Since finishing fourth to Whatizzit in December 2005, he has been restricted to just four runs - but is still on the upgrade.

The Singspiel gelding, trained by Walter Swinburn, got off the mark in August at Leicester and could be a blot on the handicap.

Atlantic Coast looks the best bet in the Weatherbys Finance Handicap at Warwick.
