Smart Call can make her class tell as she returns to action in the Betfred “Home Of Goals Galore” Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes at Kempton.

Sir Michael Stoute’s runner could certainly do with a confidence boost as she has not actually won since landing the J&B Met at Kenilworth in her native South Africa back in January 2016.

Inn The Bull has been a revelation since switching to the all-weather earlier this year and can keep up the good work in the Betfred “Watch Sky Sports In Our Shops” Queen’s Prize Handicap.

Kings Shield looks unlikely to be taking up his 2000 Guineas entry at this stage.

However, a win in the Betfred “Like Us On Facebook” Conditions Stakes might encourage connections to raise their sights a bit.

This Scat Daddy colt made a highly-favourable impression when winning on his racecourse debut, defying his evident inexperience to win by a length and a quarter as an odds-on favourite.

Masaarr is another who is currently still entered in the Newmarket Classic and he can pick up where he left off last year in the Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton.

Related to a clutch of Pattern performers, Roger Varian should have plenty to look forward to with the Distorted Humor colt.
