DOUBLE: Rock Choir and Russian Realm.
Rock Choir has so far failed to live up to the exploits of her Group One-winning sister Chorist, but she can take the next step up the ladder with Listed success at Salisbury on Wednesday.
Like her illustrious sibling, Rock Choir is trained by William Haggas and he has taken a patient approach with what is a clearly progressive filly.
Unraced as a juvenile, the three-year-old took a couple of runs to get her eye in before stepping up to nine furlongs to shed her maiden tag in fine style by five lengths.
Haggas then turned her loose in handicap company at Newbury, taking another leap in trip to 10 furlongs to win by four and a half lengths, earning her a 12lb hike in the ratings to her current mark of 94.
The daughter of Pivotal is evidently on the up and with Group One and Two entries later in the year, she really should be winning the European Breeders' Fund Upavon Fillies' Stakes if she is to reach those kind of levels.
Rock Choir is owned by Cheveley Park Stud, as is Russian Realm who can seal a great day for connections in the Goldring Security Services Pembroke Cup.
Another bred in the purple as a son of Russian Rhythm, he found winning a maiden a bit beyond him, so Sir Michael Stoute has wasted little time in switching to handicap company after his three obligatory runs.
Allotted a mark of 77 by the handicapper, he drops back to a mile - the distance he arguably ran his best race over when third on his racecourse bow last September.
Russian Realm has a fair bit to find against some experienced rivals here, but he looks one with something still to give.
It is ladies' day at Beverley and Wild Sauce can reward her supporters in the Rawfield And Paragon Data Handicap.
The four-year-old has shown signs of a return to form in her two most recent starts, claiming a second and a third on her two most recent outings at Haydock.
Those two runs came last month after a bit of a break and as a horse who has progressed with each outing in the past, she appears to be coming to the boil.
Back on her last winning mark of 74 now, Wild Sauce makes plenty of appeal, particularly from her low draw.
Calm Attitude goes for the hat-trick in the Three Cliffs Handicap at Ffos Las and looks eminently capable of achieving the feat.
A winner at Leicester on the last day of July, she followed up under a penalty at this track, idling a bit in front before having to really get to work to hold on by a head.
The handicapper has actually assessed her a couple of pounds lower than the weight she carried that day for her narrow win and any rain in Wales would bolster confidence as she evidently prefers slightly slower conditions.
Legend Rising was last seen finishing a way behind American speedball No Nay Never at Royal Ascot and is an interesting runner in the Winners Are Welcome At Betdaq Nursery Handicap at Kempton.
Winner of two of his four starts, he found the Norfolk Stakes far too tough a task but should fare much better back at this level.
Cape Of Hope has had an excellent season so far and can go in again in the Great Yarmouth Tourist Authority Handicap at the seaside track.
