DOUBLE: Endeavour and Sirajiah.
Endeavour looks banker material in the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes at Brighton.
The Acclamation colt ran a perfectly encouraging race on his Windsor debut to finish third behind a couple of rivals with runs under their belts.
The form appears solid with the winner, Smokey Lane, since placing in Listed company at York.
Soaring Spirits can extend his excellent record at the seaside venue in the Jason 'The Donkey' Jones Handicap.
Dean Ivory's chestnut won twice here in June before completing his hat-trick at Leicester at the end of July.
He returned to Brighton a fortnight ago and was only narrowly denied by the in-form Upavon by a short-head.
The handicapper has not taken any chances, handing Soaring Spirits another rise to leave him on a mark of 75. However, he has won from loftier ratings in the past, so he is certainly not handicapped out of it in present mood.
Sirajiah will not be winning out of turn if coming good in the 4-Rail Services Handicap at Windsor.
Favourite-backers had their fingers burned when the William Haggas-trained three-year-old was beaten into second on her Leicester debut in June and it has been a similar tale of woe for her supporters since as she has now filled the runner-up spot in each of her five starts.
The obvious conclusion to reach would be that she has her quirks, but she has appeared perfectly genuine and responded well to the application of cheekpieces when chasing home a subsequent winner in May Rose at this venue last month.
Sirajiah steps outside maiden company for the first time for her latest assignment and an opening perch of 72 appears workable, with the return to six furlongs likely to suit.
Golden Guest merits an interest in the Steve Riley Luton Town Memorial Nursery Handicap.
The George Margarson-trained youngster has yet to get off the mark in five tries, but his latest effort over course and distance when fourth of five can be marked up as he got no luck in running at a crucial stage.
First-time blinkers might well have the desired effect on West Drive in the Boodles Maiden Stakes.
He has been given a break since being beaten at odds-on at Bath in June and is worth another chance.
Mr Fickle might have more to offer in the Fuller Smith & Turner Plc Handicap.
Gary Moore's charge ran a respectable enough race when last seen at Epsom, his first outing since being pulled up over hurdles on Boxing Day. George Baker takes the ride again.
Jumping fare comes from Perth, where Wot A Shot gets the nod in the Sodexo Prestige Venues And Events Handicap Chase.
The seven-year-old won over this course and distance back in the spring and has been second here on his last two starts, most recently going down by just a neck.
That form is pretty decent and a return to the winner's enclosure beckons for Nicky Richards' charge.
