1 of 1

Newmarket: David Milnes

Coolongolook(2.15 Leicester, nap)

May well have found the hurly-burly of a big handicap at York too much and should find this a bit easier.The Luca Cumani-trainedthree-year-old has since impressed on the watered gallop.

North:Colin Russell

Swift Emperor(8.15 Newcastle, nap)

Fine run when fourth at Wolverhampton on his last run on Tapeta. Hasn't done quite so well on turf since then but is on a really good mark now and is fancied to bounce back.

Lambourn: James Burn

Eraad(4.25 Leicester, nap)

Things have not gone right for this Dark Angel gelding this term, but we have not seen the best of him and his best run came over this course and distance in the spring.

Others to follow

West Country:Andrew King

Livingstones Quest(2.50 Leicester, nap)

Has not proved easy to win with this year but connections are hopeful that droppinginto a seller and the addition ofOisin Murphy in the saddle can have the desired effect.

Racing Post Ratings: Simon Turner

Kirkland Forever(5.05 Brighton)

Convincing winner of a similar low grade course-and-distance handicap last time. This race looks no better and she can follow up.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Impart(1.20 Brighton)

Never headed when ending a lengthy lean spell at Lingfield a fortnight ago and can follow up off just a 2lb higher mark.

Longshot:David Revers

Victor's Bet(5.05 Brighton)

Beaten out of sight in his previous few starts but is now 9lb below his last winning mark and has shaped with some promise on both visits to this course. He could run well at a massive price.

Ireland:Tony O'Hehir

Rashaan(3.45 Galway)

A versatile performer who has won seven times over hurdles and four times on the Flat, the Colin Kidd-trained six-year-old got off the mark over fences at the third attempt when landing a 2m2f Grade 3 event over today's course in August, beating more experienced rivals. The form of the race has been boosted since and, with today's longer trip not an issue, he can deliver under Sean Flanagan.

The Raceform Interactive nugget

Archie Watson is 3-4 with his two-year-olds at Catterick, improving to 3-3 with those not making their racecourse debuts. His Summer Blossom, on her ninth start, has to be interesting in the 1.30.
