Racing: Thursday preview

Rise To Glory may give Wolverhampton racegoers something to cheer about.

The seven-year-old is well acclimatised to the Dunstall Park terrain as he has won four times at the track over various distances.

Shaun Harris’ entire has hitherto had a quiet year, though, and has hardly looked like a winner in waiting.

But that theory was realigned slightly at Chelmsford on March 18 when he showed some semblance of a return to form in a tight five-furlong handicap.

Rise To Glory was not fancied in the market, but he outran big odds to get to within a length and three-quarters of the winner, Flying Bear despite being denied his preferred front-running role.
