Nick Robson has a tip for every race on Tuesday, with Final Nudge expected to go close on his debut over fences.

Final Nudge has form ties with Unowhatimeanharry

FAKENHAM: 1.05 Taroum, 1.35 Black Narcissus, 2.05 Khismet, 2.35 Final Nudge, 3.05 Clara Peggotty, 3.35 Bertenbar.

LINGFIELD: 12.25 Marettimo, 12.55 High Mark, 1.25 Rosie Royce, 1.55 Duke Cosimo, 2.25 Spinnaker Bay, 2.55 STRONG FORCE (NAP), 3.25 Al Khan, 3.55 Mamoo.

SOUTHWELL: 12.45 Fly Home Harry, 1.15 Churchtown Champ, 1.45 Viva Rafa, 2.15 Ballymalin, 2.45 Versifier, 3.15 Stepover, 3.45 Agamemmon.

DOUBLE: Strong Force and Final Nudge.

Final Nudge could be pretty decent over fences for David Dennis and he looks the pick in the Weatherbys Racing Diaries Beginners' Chase at Fakenham.

Three times a winner over hurdles, just less than a year ago he was beaten just over a length by subsequent Albert Bartlett winner Unowhatimeanharry in a Grade Two at Cheltenham.

Given that was at level weights it was slightly disappointing he did not go on to achieve a bit more but the winner did improve out of all recognition.

Decent efforts at Warwick and Huntingdon followed before he had no trouble when dropped down in grade at Southwell in March.

That was his last effort and if he takes to fences, Dennis will have a decent prospect on his hands.

Versifier can go well in the At The Races On Sky 415 Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Southwell for Dan Skelton.

The four-year-old has claimed minor honours in each of her two starts to date in bumper company, claiming a slightly disappointing fourth at Bangor in May before posting a much better effort when third at Fontwell last month.

Oliver Sherwood's runner turned in a particularly eyecatching performance on that latter occasion, steering a wide course before looking as though she perhaps just needed the run a little when keeping on at the one pace in the finish.

Versifier should feel the benefit of that outing here and is an intriguing contender on her hurdles bow.

Strong Force surely has more improvement in him than most of his rivals in the Betway Handicap at Lingfield.

Godolphin are making hay on the all-weather after a poor summer, particularly for Saeed bin Suroor, yet their fortunes are turning a corner now.

This Sea The Stars gelding is a half-brother to a Group Three winner and his dam, Rhadegunda, was a Listed winner herself.

He was beaten on debut at Catterick in September which did not bode well but he showed the benefit of that outing next time out.

Up against some useful-looking rivals at Chelmsford City he made all, never looking likely to be caught.

The second, trained by John Gosden, has won since and the third, trained by Sir Michael Stoute, was rated 81.

Strong Force has been given a mark of 86 for his handicap debut and with the stable operating at a near 40 per cent strike-rate, he has plenty going for him.

Spinnaker Bay can finally get off the mark in the 32Red Casino Nursery Handicap.

William Jarvis is probably mystified as to how his charge is still a maiden after several good runs and there are definitely races to be won with her.

Second on debut at Newbury, she was then a close third at Nottingham before her one disappointing run at York.

She then went close in third at Windsor before showing the all-weather posed no problems at Chelmsford, beaten three lengths into fourth.

That was a maiden but she is back in a handicap off 72 having run off the same mark at Windsor she should go close again if she is not too hard done by in stall 10.
