Having been thwarted by the Greg Hancock-Billy Hamill combination at Oxford on Thursday, Wolverhampton know exactly who the dangermen are as they launch the 2005 Monmore Green campaign tonight.
The American duo, formerly scourges of Wolves when they rode for both Cradley Heath and Coventry, have an excellent record record at Monmore over the years, and will fancy their chances of doing further damage for their new club this evening.
Last week's match at Cowley saw Wolves hold the lead for the majority of the meeting, only to concede maximum points to Hancock and Hamill in two of the last three races to go down to a 47-41 defeat.
Steve Johnston and Krzysztof Pecyna both make their home debuts, Magnus Karlsson makes his first Monmore appearance as a fullyfledged team member and Ronnie Correy is back as a Wolves rider for the first time since late 2000.
Meanwhile new Coventry signing Rory Schlein believes that Coventry will quickly click into the groove this season despite an opening-night defeat by Belle Vue.
The Aces showed the clear benefit of having racing laps already under their belt as they collected a 47-43 win in Friday's AirTek Challenge fixture - but as with Wolves' defeat at Oxford, no League points were lost as a result.
Schlein, who starred at Brandon when racing for Belle Vue last year, made a generally positive Bees debut, winning his second ride in easily the fastest time of the night.
He said: "I know most of the lads in the Belle Vue team so it wasn't great to get beaten by them, but it was a good meeting to have to blow away the cobwebs. It wasn't for any points, so we tried a few things and it was good to get back on a bike and mix it.
"One of our weaknesses was not being as sharp as Belle Vue as they had already had two meetings, so we were fairly happy. Give us time and we should be at our best.
"I struggled with my gating, but if I can consistently get to the first bend with the big guns I'll be there and mix it with them."
Scott Nicholls, who topscored for Coventry with 12 points, believes that the Bees are ready for their League campaign, which starts at home to Peterborough on Friday, with Wolves travelling to Belle Vue for their first Elite League encounter on the same evening.
Nicholls said: "The League matches are the important ones, and there's no reason why we can't win [the title]."
