FORMER champion jockey Jamie Spencer grabbed a double at a packed Great Yarmouth racecourse yesterday and he will be hoping to score again today when the course hosts an quick follow-up fixture.

First race is at 2.20pm and there is a six-race card for punters to get stuck into.

Spencer has four rides, all in with a chance following his successes yesterday on Alsace Lorraine at 13-2 and Seneschal at 11-2.

The opener looks a straight choice between Spencer's mount, Lady's Art and the likey favourite, Wadaat, trained by Clive Brittain and ridden by Neil Callan.

Spencer is on the favourite Special Cuvee in the 2.50 but the top weight could be vulnerable to one from Jeff Pearce's yard, Dead Cat Bounce.

Michael Hills could score on the likey favourite Lovely Thought in the 3.20 while brother Richard has a possible winning chance in the following race on Michael Jarvis' Aaket.

Jarvis could complete a trainer's double in the final race on the card with Dark Prospect while in the 4.20 there may be value in Rose Bien, like yo to start around 7-1 in the two-mile event.

Selections:

2.20 - Wadaat

2.50 - Dead Cat Bounce

3.20 - Lovely Thought

3.50 - Aaket

4.20 - Rose Bien

4.50 - Dark Prospect
