Almoreb has rarely run a bad race so far in his career, so he is taken to put up another good show in the Weatherbys General Stud Book Online Handicap at Salisbury.

Staying will be the name of the game on heavy ground and given Almoreb has winning form on soft ground, it is not too much of a stretch to imagine he can plough through conditions here, too.

Richard Hannon's charge has only finished out of the first four on two occasions in an eight-race career and has slightly paid for his consistency with an ever-increasing handicap mark.

However, after winning off 87 at Chelmsford on his penultimate start, Almoreb very nearly shrugged off a 5lb hike when finishing third at Sandown last time out.

The Raven's Pass colt was perhaps given a touch too much to do that day and while he was three lengths down on the first two, there was daylight back to the fourth.

Shania Says can claim the Jockey Club Grassroots Nursery Handicap Series Final Stakes at Nottingham.

Having her eighth start, Tony Carroll's charge is another who can be relied upon to put her best foot forward having troubled the judge the last five times.

Her recent third in a well-contested Goodwood event looked a decent effort, particularly as she was a little bit too keen through the early stages before surrendering the lead in the final furlong.

A revised mark of 71 looks perfectly viable.

Credit to owners Bill and Tim Gredley for the fantastically-named Expensive Liaison who makes her debut in the EBF Costa Bingo Oh So Sharp Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

A daughter of Camelot, this filly is out of Listed 10-furlong winner Indigo Lady which probably makes her much more of a 2018 prospect for trainer Hugo Palmer.

However, a mile looks a suitable jumping-off point for her and she can earn a little chunk of her 155,000 guineas purchase price.

Brilliant Vanguard can continue to make hay in the 32Red Handicap at Kempton.

Kevin Ryan's charge is on quite a roll at present and will be seeking his fourth win on the bounce in this mile affair, as well as a second successive victory at the Sunbury venue.

Two wins at Ripon in August marked a change in fortunes and he wasted little time in following up in hot heat at this track at the beginning of September, racing off a mark 11lb higher than his starting perch.

The handicapper has edged him up another 4lb for that win, but Brilliant Vanguard should be game for the task.
