Tim Easterby may have been out of luck at Royal Ascot but he can gain compensation of sorts with Aasheq in the Cumberland Plate Handicap at Carlisle.

Vintage Brut was never at the races in the Norfolk at the big meeting, while Wells Farhh Go fared with a bit of promise in the King Edward VII Stakes but still finished out of the places.

The five-year-old Aasheq has already contributed two to his trainer’s impressive tally this term and looks up to defying top weight.

It could be a profitable day for Easterby and David Allan, who look to hold a big chance in the AGMA Stablemate Carlisle Bell Handicap with Vive La Difference.

Formerly with Andre Fabre, the four-year-old has really come to himself.

Infrastructure can open his account in the Whitsbury Manor Stud Bibury Cup Handicap at Salisbury.

While Infrastructure faces some in-form rivals there is more to come.

Okool will have his supporters in the HS Lester Memorial Handicap after a decent run first time out.

Sir Michael Stoute’s Karawaan has been knocking on the door of late and should go close once again in Kempton’s 32Red On The App Store Handicap.

Mark Johnston’s Prairie Spy looks well up to defying a penalty in the Air Technology Systems Supporting Wateraid/British EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Bath.
