DOUBLE: Toriano and Laidback Romeo.

Toriano can extend his unbeaten run to three in the Coplow Handicap at Leicester.

James Eustace's charge made a late start to his career at Kempton in April, but he wasted little time in making up lost ground as he scored at the first attempt.

He showed a nice, professional attitude to triumph by a neck, not backing down against a rival who had the benefit of a previous run and has gone on to win twice subsequently.

The third-placed runner has also tasted victory since that contest, so that bit of form has a pleasing look about it, while Toriano himself has added another win to his record.

Lining up at Lingfield, the handicapper gave him a starting mark of 75 and he made reasonably light work of that when triumphing by a length and a quarter at Lingfield in May.

That was a decent performance but the Equiano colt has been off the track since then, which is a marginal concern along with his inevitable rise of 6lb in the weights.

However, he showed by winning first time up that lack of a recent run is not an issue and he should be up to the task judged on what is a progressive profile so far.

Paling is another to note at the track as he contests the Michael John Flooring Handicap.

A son of Zamindar from one of Khalid Abdullah's long-standing families, Paling may only have two wins from seven starts so far, but he has shown more than a little ability in decent company.

He did not enjoy the best of runs when beaten just a head at Sandown but should be thereabouts given a clearer passage.

Laidback Romeo scored for the first time in over a year at Sandown last week and he can make it a quick-fire double in the Debbie Parrish Birthday Celebration Handicap at Windsor.

Lining up in a thoroughly competitive event, Clive Cox's charge came with a perfectly-timed challenge to run out a head winner over a mile.

Hiked 3lb in the weights following that win, Laidback Romeo is off a career-high mark of 89 and while that is clearly not ideal, his latest win marked a personal best and he appears to be in the form of his life.

Misty Lord was staying on all the way to the finish at Newmarket and is worth another shot in Chelmsford's Macmillan.Org.Uk Handicap.

A winner at Wolverhampton back in January, Misty Lord was then off the track until just over two weeks ago when he was beaten two and a half lengths at Headquarters.

The handicapper has decided that efforts merits a 2lb rise but that may not be enough to stop this son of Lilbourne Lad.

Stosur had slid down the ratings in recent times and given she is now 8lb lower than her last winning mark, she should be shortlisted in the Macmillan Not Alone Campaign Fillies' Handicap.

Over in Ireland, all eyes will be on Caravaggio as he tries for a fourth career success in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.

Given the ease of his impressive Royal Ascot win, it will be a surprise if he does not justify skinny odds.

Toscanini may offer more value in the Qatar Racing & Equestrian Club Phoenix Sprint Stakes after getting found out for stamina over seven furlongs in the Minstrel Stakes.
