QUEST FOR LIFE (3.05) has been lumbered with top weight on his handicap debut but he should still be very competitive in a low-grade handicap hurdle at Wetherby.
The six-year-old ran his best race to date over course and distance in late December, splitting Charlie Longsdon's Lisdoonvarna and useful Some Reign in a novices' hurdle.
DUBAWI FIFTY (5.35), trained locally by Karen McLintock, is a dual winner at Newcastle and has a favourite's chance in the opening 2m handicap this evening. Fourth in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket in October, Dubawi Fifty can outstay his rivals down the long straight.
