Foxtrot Lady can make the right moves to get off the mark on her seasonal debut in the Betfred ‘Like Us On Facebook’ Fillies’ Handicap at Salisbury on Sunday.

This half-sister to 2016 Stewards’ Cup winner Dancing Star showed a decent level of form as a juvenile when placed in the last four of her five starts.

Her last run was her best as she was third to Darkanna in the 23-runner Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar in October.

Precision can make a victorious return to action in the Betfred ‘City Bowl’ Handicap.

The four-year-old shaped with some promise last year, eventually getting off the mark when landing a 14-furlong handicap at Sandown in August.

That may not have been the strongest contest, but Precision won cosily and built on that when fourth at Nottingham on his final start of the campaign.

Beaten two lengths by Dubawi Fifty, who went on to finish fourth in the Cesarewitch, Precision did not enjoy much luck in running but kept finding at the finish.

Harlequin Striker can also benefit from a longer distance when going up from a mile to 10 furlongs in the Betfred TV Handicap.

The six-year-old, trained by Dean Ivory, made good late progress to take second place behind Bakht A Rawan at Windsor earlier this month.

Deadly Reel is the pick in the D M Keith: Skoda, Seat & Honda Handicap at Wetherby.

She should be primed for action after two recent all-weather starts, being beaten just a neck at Chelmsford earlier this month.

Becker can make it three wins on the bounce in the Jim Yeats Memorial Handicap.

Victorious at Kempton and Chelmsford on his two latest starts, he defied a 4lb rise on the latter occasion.
