Count on Looks Like Rain to be a winner at Wolverhampton
LOOKS Like Rain can maintain Brian Ellison's good run of form by winning at Wolverhampton.
The North Yorkshire handler has enjoyed a fine sequence of results of late, and will be expecting another prominent showing from this tough three-year-old.
Despite having been campaigned over seven furlongs as a juvenile, Looks Like Rain is all about stamina.
She has shown her aptitude for two miles on her last two visits to the racecourse, when she occupied the runner-up berth on both occasions.

Nothing was finishing quicker than this Medicean filly on her penultimate start at Beverley, but she was unlucky to bump into the Sir Mark Prescott-trained Solar View, who has since won three other races.
Next up was a trip to Goodwood, where she again fared with promise under Richard Hughes, pictured, whose appointment was a clear statement of intent, but she perhaps found the ground a little too forgiving.
Ellison's inmate had demonstrated a liking for the all-weather earlier in the campaign, when third over a mile-and-a-half at Lingfield in June, so this return to the Polytrack looks a good piece of business.
Looks Like Rain is still unexposed, having had just eight outings so far in her career, and is almost certainly better than her mark of 61.
Silvestre de Sousa's booking must surely add value to her chances in the Book Hospitality At Wolverhampton Racecourse Handicap.
Little wonder trainer Mark Johnston has brought Hikma swiftly back into the fray for the wolverhampton-racecourse.co.uk Handicap.
The three-year-old filly won with such authority at Beverley last week that a big rise in the weights can be forecast.
To that end, a 6lb penalty can be safely navigated here before connections consider a possible rise in class.
Michael's Song can be expected to get off the mark at the fifth attempt in the Celtic Holiday Parks Nursery at Ffos Las.
The Mick Channon-trained filly did well on her nursery bow at Goodwood, finishing strongly, but an admittedly well-beaten second to Opt Out.
Form students will be buoyed by the fact the winner that day has since trotted up at Warwick.
Connections will hope the ground dries out sufficiently so she can put her best foot forward.
Similar comments apply to Red Avalanche, whose recent displays at Newmarket and Bath would indicate a long losing run will soon be coming to an end, hopefully in the Stradey Park Handicap.
