Today’s meeting at Doncaster was called off yesterday after an inspection of the frozen course at Town Moor.

Steve Rogers has some way to go to live up to his superhero name but he can take another step in the right direction with victory in the 32Red Handicap at Wolverhampton on Friday.

The four-year-old was actually entered for the sales this week but a win at Dunstall Park last month clearly earned him a reprieve as he was withdrawn and remains in the very capable hands of Roger Varian.

Given the way he was staying on at Dunstall, this step up to nearly 14 furlongs should see Steve Rogers in an even better light.
