Nonios appears to have undergone something of a renaissance in 2018 and can keep up the good work in the totequadpot Races 3 To 6 Handicap at Chelmsford.

David Simcock’s charge had been without a win since September 2016 before scoring at Chelmsford in January, and he has since gone in again at that track last week.

Espadrille was a comfortable winner at Kempton back in November and it will be disappointing if she cannot pick up the thread in the toteexacta Pick The 1st And 2nd Fillies’ Novice Stakes.

She made all the running over a mile at the Sunbury track and a switch to 10 furlongs should be within her compass.

Poet’s Prince made the most of a slight dip in class to win at Southwell on his return and his confidence should be riding high going into the totetrifecta Pick The 1,2,3 Handicap.

King Kevin is at Wolverhampton and can chalk up a sixth win of the winter in the Betway Handicap, while Nightfly holds solid claims in the Follow At Racing_UK On Twitter Now Handicap Chase at Wetherby.

Charlie Longsdon’s mare made a flying start over fences at Southwell in December.

While she was no match for Tree Of Liberty at Ludlow the following month, the winner has since won again and finished second twice.

Floral Bouquet might be good enough to open her account in the Ladies Night At Towcester Racecourse Mares’ Maiden Hurdle.
