DOUBLE: Sunny Future and Correggio

Salisbury ace Sunny Future can claim a seventh victory at the Wiltshire circuit when he goes for gold in the Bathwick Tyres Handicap.

Malcolm Saunders' representative is now 10 years old, but he is still loving the game and cannot possibly be overlooked at his spiritual home.

The gelded son of Masterful has quite a lot on his plate against a clutch of potentially smart younger horses, while he also found a mile and three-quarters a bridge too far at this track in July.

He travelled sweetly for a long way on his most recent foray to Salisbury but he found disappointingly little when push came to shove.

To that end, the return to a mile and a half has to be considered a wise manoeuvre for the fast-ground-loving Sunny Future, who is not out of it at the weights and is reunited with Martin Dwyer, who has twice ridden him to victory.

The Group Three Bathwick Tyres Dick Poole Fillies' Stakes does not look an especially fervent betting heat, but it could be worth chucking a few bob the way of Elliptical, who really impressed on her Newmarket debut and is only going one way.

Correggio should be followed in Haydock's Best Odds Guaranteed At 188Bet Handicap for gentleman amateur riders.

Micky Hammond's inmate does not want rain, but he made his mark at Beverley last time when a slightly unlucky third in a mile-and-quarter handicap a few weeks ago.

The six-year-old chestnut is quite a useful operator on his day and remains on a nice mark if his Pontefract success last June is taken into account.

Sarsted looks the shout in the totepoolRacing Find Us On Instagram Handicap at Chelmsford.

Trained in East Ilsley by the trusty Hughie Morrison, the four-year-old takes an intriguing step up to a mile and three-quarters after having done so well at Lingfield on August 3.

Sarsted did not have the cleanest of passages towards the winning line in a one-mile-three-furlong handicap, but he still caught the eye to finish second behind West Coast Flyer.

The gelded son of Paco Boy is not an especially quick so the hope is this ascent in distance can eke out a little bit more improvement from a horse that does not have a great deal of mileage.

He is also 1lb lower in the weights than when he won over a mile and a quarter at this track last July.
