Arzaak looks the one to back in the Moulton Nurseries Of Acle Handicap at Yarmouth this evening.
The three-year-old disappointed when favourite at Windsor on his penultimate start, but was much more like it last time out when just touched off at Bath.
It is very hard to see past The Last Emperor in the British Stallion Studs EBF “Stallion-Restricted” Novice Stakes.
Roger Varian’s colt made a likeable start in what might prove a useful maiden over course and distance last month.
Elsewhere Icefall can be followed in the tiesplanet.com - Ladies Love Guys In Ties Handicap at Pontefract.
The four-year-old’s three wins have come over this trip of a mile and a half, and with that in mind his reappearance run over an inadequate 10 furlongs at Ripon was not without some promise, coming as it did on the back of a 276-day break.
Tim Easterby’s charge only beat one home, but was caught a bit flat-footed half a mile out and was not given an overly hard time of it in the closing stages once his winning chance had gone.
That will have blown away the cobwebs, though, and, back up in trip now, he is only 4lb higher than his last winning mark.
Im Dapper Too has been in really solid form of late and there is no reason why he should not be thereabouts once more in division one of the Bet With Jayne – Your Local Bookmaker Handicap.
Trained by John Davies, the six-year-old is on a hat-trick after two wins at Carlisle and was in fact second in this race two years ago.
He is 10lb higher in the weights these days but is running as well as he has ever done, sticking on in determined fashion last time out.
Admirable Art is operating at a career-high mark but might have something to offer in the Hobgoblin Brighton Mile Challenge Trophy Handicap.
One or two decent yards are represented in the Bombardier EBF Novice Stakes, where Ed Dunlop’s Tadleel sets the standard.
He finished mid-division in a Newmarket maiden won by subsequent Superlative Stakes and Richmond Stakes runner-up Nebo, before getting off the mark on his return to Headquarters. Those experiences should stand him in good stead.
