DOUBLE: Fintry and Kingsgate Native.
Fintry can spearhead a good afternoon for the Godolphin team with victory in the Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Atalanta Stakes at Sandown.
Trained by Andre Fabre, the hint should be taken whenever the master French handler sends one of his inmates across the Channel with the stable already boasting two winners from six runners on these shores in 2014.
Fintry has already demonstrated she is more than useful on home soil, winning three of her four starts to date with her only defeat coming at the hands of subsequent Classic-placed Veda back in April.
Fabre's charge has since gone on to win a Listed event before comprehensively putting Veda in her place when winning a Group Two at Chantilly in June.
The Shamardal filly prevailed by just over a length that date but the distance hardly does her justice as Fintry barely hit top gear that day.
Given a break since, Fintry will have to concede weight to her rivals in this Group Three event but given her entries at the highest level in the autumn, it will be disappointing if she does not emerge on top.
Future Empire can make it a Pattern double for Godolphin in the European Wealth Solario Stakes.
Admittedly there is not much to go on with this New Approach colt as he is having just his second start here, but his racecourse debut was packed full of promise.
Sent to Newmarket by trainer Saeed bin Suroor, Future Empire appeared to know his job well and finished off his race really strongly to win by two and a half lengths.
The three that claimed the minor honours have all subsequently won while a few of the also-rans have shown up well since without actually getting their heads in front so the form has a strong look about it.
A step up in trip will suit in due course but this seven-furlong trip looks ideal for now.
Kingsgate Native can make the most of a drop in class in the Betfred Beverley Bullet at the East Yorkshire venue.
The nine-year-old has been towards the top of the sprinting ranks for a number of seasons but after a flying start this term, he appears to have gone off the boil a bit in recent outings.
After going down by just half a length to Sole Power on his initial start, he turned in a couple of good efforts before a switch back to Listed company failed to yield the expected result.
Take Cover emerged triumphant that day and perhaps the form was not too bad after all as the horse went on to win a Group Two at Goodwood, with Kingsgate Native well beaten that day.
Robert Cowell lowers his sights here and with the Westwood ground likely to be on the quick side, Kingsgate Native has every chance of gaining his first win since Haydock's Temple Stakes last May.
In contrast, Truancy is on quite a roll as he shoots for his fourth win on the bounce in the Betfred ''Racing's Biggest Supporter'' Handicap.
Karl Burke's charge has racked up wins at Doncaster, Epsom and Ripon, shooting up from a mark of 68 to his current perch of 80.
A total rise of 12lb is a fair amount but Truancy has responded every time he has been asked and he looked thoroughly good value for his win last time, suggesting there could be more to come.
Whiplash Willie should relish the ease in conditions at Chester as he lines up in the Win £10,000,000 On Betdaq Colossus Chester Stakes.
He has not run since chasing home Brown Panther when third at Sandown back in May.
Trainer Andrew Balding has nursed the six-year-old back from injury and with that in mind, he has sidestepped a number of potential targets due to the fast ground that has prevailed throughout the summer.
Rain this week has suitably softened the Roodee ground and Whiplash Willie has shown before that he is perfectly capable of winning off a break.
Dursey Sound can take Listed glory in the Lord Mildmay Memorial Handicap Chase, the feature event at Newton Abbot.
The six-year-old has largely failed to live up to expectations in the past with some jumping errors costing him dear, but he did manage to get his head in front at Southwell earlier this month.
That should have boosted his confidence nicely and Dursey Sound can finally start to realise some of his potential.
Clerk's Choice showed a little of his old fire last time and could be the one in the Follow Scoop6 At totepoolliveinfo.com Handicap Hurdle.
Bath and Market Rasen bring the curtain down on evening racing for 2014, with Sir Tyto primed to strike in the Merlin Woodburning Stoves Handicap.
At Market Rasen, Chesterfield can score again for John Ferguson in the Watch RacingUK On Sky Channel 432 Novices' Hurdle.
