We're in the Dream Factory.

Dine In Horizons Apprentice Handicap.

George Baker dropped her back to selling company last time but she struggled to make an impact under a heavy burden, finishing a seven-length second behind Faithful Ruler.

That was not a bad effort but the switch back to handicap company is certainly in her favour and Matthew Davies is a good man to have aboard in this type of event.

Westhaven is worth a chance as he makes his racecourse bow in the Hotel & Conferencing At Wolverhampton Maiden Stakes.

The Alhaarth colt is a half-brother to Listed winner Doctor Dash and the game multiple Group-race victor Barshiba, with trainer David Elsworth no doubting hoping he has a touch of class too.

Mohi Rahrere holds plenty of appeal in the Ladbrokes Mobile Masters Handicap Chase at Towcester.

The eight-year-old is pretty lightly raced for a horse of his age and he enjoyed a red-letter day when notching a first career success at Uttoxeter last October.

He nearly came unstuck when hampered at the third fence that day, but his jockey managed to stay aboard and Mohi Rahrere recovered in style to take it up at the second-last fence.

Mohi Rahrere then showed plenty of guts to hold In The Zone by half a length at the line and despite a 10lb hike, he could just be the one to follow again.

Insider Dealer is the choice in Taunton''s Oxygen Creative Design And Web Development Novices'' Limited Handicap Chase.

Colin Tizzard''s charge was a comfortable winner at Exeter just before Christmas, defying a 4lb higher mark to stroll home by 12 lengths from Stradbrook.

He has paid the price for that victory with a further 12lb rise but Insider Dealer still looks to be improving and could have a little more left in the locker.

DREAMACHA is still relatively unexposed on the all weather and she makes plenty of appeal on a low-key afternoon at Wolverhampton.

The four-year-old did not show too much in her early days on the level, finally get her head in front at the sixth attempt when triumphing at Brighton in September.

She then wasted little time in making it two wins, putting her best foot forward on the Polytrack here at Dunstall Park on her next start.

That victory saw her raised to a mark of 65 and she remains on that rating despite defeats back on the turf at Leicester and on the sand at Lingfield.

Her latter effort still promised much though, as she was beaten just over a length in fourth and given that she is still lightly raced, the Oasis Dream filly might still have a bit up her sleeve for trainer Stuart Williams.
