Time To Study can make amends for an unfortunate defeat last time out in the totepool Barry Hills Further Flight Stakes at Nottingham.

His ability to handle heavy ground and the fact he has more scope to progress than most stands him in good stead.

Mayson won a July Cup on heavy ground so his filly Fondest will have no trouble handling the conditions in the toteplacepot Novice Stakes.

James Fanshawe’s youngster hinted at ability last year and can take a step forward with a winter on her back.

Sir Roderic might be worth giving one more chance in the totetrifecta Handicap.

Fennaan looks a colt of immense promise ahead of the first division of the Racing UK-sponsored novice stakes taking place over seven furlongs.

Later on the card Silvestre de Sousa is a notable jockey booking by Ed de Giles for Bombero in the 32Red Casino Handicap.

Another lightly-raced type is Robert Stephens’ Castlelyons in the 32Red Handicap, while Michael Bell’s Geetanjali has a great chance of a hat-trick in the John Bolton Memorial Handicap at Lingfield.

Peter Chapple-Hyam’s Lubinka was sent off at 150-1 in the Fillies’ Mile but she was far from disgraced when sixth of 11, beaten a little over six lengths.

She could run a stone below that form and still will the 32Red Fillies’ Novice Median Auction Stakes.

The Paul Nicholls-trained Mont Des Avaloirs should take some stopping in the Smarkets Novices’ Hurdle at Market Rasen.
