1 of 1

North:Colin Russell

Dalton(4.10 Ayr, nap)

Lambourn: James Burn

Nebo(3.55 Newbury, nap)

Three-year-old did not fire earlier in the season, but shaped encouragingly on his comeback at York last month and has saved his best performances for this venue. Any rain will boost his chances considerably.

Ayr 2.30 Glorious Charmer, 3.05 Dave Dexter.
Newbury 1.10 Tanqeeb, 1.45 Breath Of Air, 2.20 Not So Sleepy, 3.25 Beat Le Bon, 4.30 Rhossili Down, 5.05 Medieval.

West Country:Tim Mitchell

Western Sunrise(4.55 Newton Abbot, nap)

Early casualty last time but knocking on the door previously, including over course-and-distance.Looks to have been found an inviting opportunity to add to her sole success.

Others to follow
Newbury 2.50 Sufficient, 5.05 Dream Machine.
Newton Abbot 2.10 Quite By Chance, 2.40 Scoop The Pot, 3.15 Acker Bilk, 3.45 Winter Spice, 4.20 Flying Tiger.

Racing Post Ratings: Sam Walker

Sleepy Head(9.00 Dundalk)

Fair effort at Gowran last time and returns to the all-weather on a workable marked judged on last year's course-and-distance success (RPR 70).

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Kenny The Captain(4.10 Ayr)

Has been a beaten favourite twice recently but showed glimpses of a return to form each time and could end his lengthy lean spell.

Longshot:Sam Hardy

Kinks(3.05 Ayr)

Closethird in the Super Sprint at Newbury, sent over to France to compete in a Group 1 but was outclassed andhe should be more competitive in this grade.

Ireland:Tony O'Hehir

Presenting Mahler(5.10 Ballinrobe)

Having made all and jumped well to record her fourth win over fences with a 21 length victory at the recent Listowel, the John Ryan-trained eight-year-old reverts to hurdles with genuine claims in today's 2m4f mares handicap. She handles testing ground well and gets the vote score under Danny Mullins.
