1.20 Wolverhampton- In-form Loughnane team looking to strike again
Thursday’s card kicks off with a fascinating meeting of in-form rivals in the It’s Time To Turn To talkSPORT Fillies’ Handicap (1.20).
Father and son duo Mark and Billy Loughnane have been in flying form, combining for six winners over the last fortnight and team up again with hat-trick seeker Algheed.
